About the event

Ahead Of The Game Foundation brings this class to you fully funded to assist with the struggles that come with every cancer diagnosis. Ambassador Victoria Craven is a vastly experienced breathwork, yoga and pilates coach for those diagnosed with cancer.

Yoga can be beneficial for individuals diagnosed with cancer in various ways:

  • * Stress Reduction: A cancer diagnosis can cause immense stress and anxiety. Yoga, with its focus on breathing exercises, meditation, and relaxation techniques, can help reduce stress levels, promoting a sense of calmness and mental wellbeing
  • * Physical Wellbeing: Certain yoga poses and gentle movements can help improve flexibility, strength, and balance. These practices can be adapted to suit individual needs, aiding in maintaining physical function and mobility during cancer treatment.
  • * Pain Management: Some yoga postures and breathing exercises may assist in alleviating pain and discomfort associated with cancer and its treatments.
  • * Improved Sleep: Cancer and its treatments can often disrupt sleep patterns. Yoga relaxation techniques and breathing exercises may help individuals achieve better sleep quality, leading to improved overall wellbeing.
  • * Emotional Support: Yoga practices, including mindfulness and meditation, can provide emotional support, helping individuals cope with the emotional challenges that often accompany a cancer diagnosis. It can offer a sense of empowerment and control over one's body and emotions.
  • * Enhanced Quality of Life: Engaging in yoga during cancer treatment can contribute to an improved quality of life by fostering a sense of connection, community, and purpose.

JANUARY TOPIC - HEALTHY BACKS

Back pain can range from sudden, sharp pain to a dull, constant ache. In some cases, the pain can radiate down one or both legs or get worse when you bend, sit, lift something, or walk.  Back pain is one of the most common medical problems in the world — eight out of 10 people have back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is also a side effect of several cancer treatments.

Back pain can be caused by arthritis, disc deterioration, a herniated disc, inflammation, muscle knots, or injury.

Joint pain, which can affect your lower back, is a possible side effect of chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and targeted therapy. Chemotherapy and hormonal therapy can also cause thinning of the bones, called osteoporosis. Back pain caused by something other than spinal lesions often is treated with a combination of exercises and stretching.

Each session will incorporate 2 breathwork techniques, joint mobility work and some gentle yoga poses designed to create space and freedom of movement. All practices will end with a guided relaxation.

These are inclusive classes and so options will be given for those who wish to practise in a chair rather than the mat and we use a variety of tools to make the poses more accessible.
