Yoga does not cure cancer. Practicing modified asanas and pranaymas can alleviate pain from cancer and ease discomfort in various stages of its treatment. This guidebook is divided into several sections. First Lois introduces low risk modified poses that provide comfort and rest for all cancer patients. The second section provides poses against nausea, headache and difficulty in breathing, that can occur e.g. as side-effects of chemotherapy. The following sections are dedicated to the stage after recovery from cancer, followed by different case studies.
