Yoga BOOK for breast cancer patients and survivors
The Yoga book supporting your breast cancer recovery
- With guided sequences of three levels of difficulties, helping you to progress through your breast cancer journey into recovery
- Suitable as a tool for a home-based practice for breast cancer patients and survivors
The gentle healing yoga flow sequence is specifically designed for breast cancer patients recovering from surgery or undergoing active treatments like radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The sequence is designed for those who want to alleviate the common side effects of these treatments, including fatigue, insomnia, muscular pain, lymphedema, anxiety and depression.
The rejuvenating yoga flow sequence is specifically designed for breast cancer patients who have completed all on-going medical treatments and have moved onto “survivorship” mode. The sequence is designed for breast cancer survivors who want to start rebuilding their strength and practice through a physically stronger, yet grounded yoga practice.
The dynamic yoga flow sequence is specifically designed for breast cancer survivors who have worked through both the healing and rejuvenating sequences, and who are ready for a more dynamic and challenging practice.
We are also proud to support Maggie's Cancer Centres and 10% of all our yoga book sales will be donated to Maggie's Cancer Centres in the UK. The Yoga book is available for purchase on Amazon UK.

Regular exercise benefits everyone but especially women and men recovering from breast cancer treatments. Exercise should be easily incorporated into daily life, varied, fun, energizing and uplifting and Dr Kwok's book captures all of these elements.
Ms Fiona MacNeill, Consultant Breast Surgeon, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust. President UK's Associate of Breast Surgery (2015-2017)
"As a specialist working daily with breast cancer patients enduring or recovering from difficult treatment programmes, I often recommend yoga as a way of maintaining fitness, increasing core muscular strength, decreasing stress levels, and helping sleep patterns.
Dr Jimmy Kwok's "Yoga for breast cancer patients and survivors" is an easy-to-read guide for patients and their carers to take up this ancient art in a way that can help them, both physically and mentally, throughout their treatment and recovery time."
Dr Greg Wilson, Consultant Medical Oncologist, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust

"With increasing evidence that regular exercise improves cancer outcome, 'Yoga for Breast Cancer Survivors and Patients' is a timely and wonderful yoga exercisebook which offers breast cancer patients practical day-to-day yoga techniques. Simple and clear instructions will make exercising easy, focused and fun".

" This yoga book will be a great resource for breast cancer patients and survivors. Jimmy delineates up to date clinical research on the effects of yoga on breast cancer patients and survivors and how yoga affects the body and mind differently from other forms of exercise. The yoga sequences are structured to help facilitate one’s healing journey at home. Through this book I trust many breast patients will find some relief through the practice of yoga”.
