Yoga Support during Breast Cancer

“Yoga can teach you to strengthen the immune system as well as soften the worst effects of illness and treatments…Yoga also helps us stabilise and relax the body while enhancing concentration, memory, balance, mental activity, and tranquility…I think of yoga as a prescription for reclaiming life and as a wellness plan for moving on to long-term health.”

After 25 years of practicing yoga, and 15 years of teaching, my work with women during breast cancer organically evolved through my teaching experiences of working with many women in different phases of their lives.
The diversity of the experiences has allowed me to meet each woman with breast cancer where she is in her treatment program and life process.

I have completed 2 Yoga for Cancer trainings:
- Vicky Fox (Triyoga, London)
- Gaby Kammler (Yoga-und-Krebs, Köln).

I am now offering yoga for women with breast cancer in the Forum Wolfgarten, Bonn.

These classes are available to you, whether you have just received a cancer diagnosis, you are in treatment, or at the end of your treatment program, and you wish to find your way back to your power.

Nach 25 Jahren Yoga-Praxis und 15 Jahren Lehrtätigkeit hat sich meine Arbeit mit Frauen bei Brustkrebs organisch durch meine Lehrerfahrungen aus der Arbeit mit vielen Frauen in verschiedenen Lebensphasen entwickelt.

Diese Vielfalt an Erfahrung ermöglicht es mir, jede Frau mit Brustkrebs dort zu treffen, wo sie sich in ihrem Behandlungsprogramm und Lebensprozess befindet.

Meine absolvierten Yoga für Krebs-Trainings:
- Vicky Fox (Triyoga, London)
- Gaby Kammler (Yoga-und-Krebs, Köln).

Im Forum Wolfgarten in Bonn bietet ich Yoga für Frauen mit Brustkrebs an.

Diese Kurse stehen Ihnen zur Verfügung, unabhängig davon, ob Sie gerade eine Krebsdiagnose erhalten haben, sich in Behandlung befinden oder am Ende Ihres Behandlungsprogramms stehen und den Weg zurück in Ihre Kraft finden möchten.

Yoga is a researched and proven method of supporting breast cancer patients during and after their treatments, primarily focusing on:

  • Boosting the immune system by activating the relaxation response
  • Conscious relaxation through breathing and restorative yoga practices
  • Strengthening muscles & bones through a stronger more active yoga practice
  • Soft supported stretches to help heal scar tissue and support joint site stability
  • Supporting a stable state of mind through simple mindfulness practices
  • Self-empowerment and self-care through the treatment process, as well as feeling empowered to support your own recovery and remission in a safe environment
  • Basic pain management through focused breathing, relaxation and positive image creation.
  • Specifically tailored classes to meet the special physical and emotional needs of the women
  • Supporting you to find a simple yoga practice to do at home
  • Leading you to inner peace and deep relaxation, in order to better master challenging times


“In the yoga practice I was able to be at peace with my body, accepting my body, and accepting my mind. I was 100% present. This was the most powerful quality of the practice. Even when I didn’t feel well, I went to yoga, knowing I would feel well afterwards.”

Seva project

In Yoga, SEVA (Say-va) is a Sanskrit word for service - how can we serve others and give back to society. Through my yoga practice and teaching, I aim to give back to my childhood community in a small and meaningful way. Since I grew up in South Africa, this is where my heart lies in an attempt to empower young children in the Lidgetton community where it is often challenging to have hope and see the light. Our small Angel Ruth’s Soup Kitchen is a space where the children can go for a warm meal, as well as to a space where they know they are safe and cared for, can play freely and learn.

I offer a percentage of my teaching earnings back into this community, knowing that is is well used and goes directly to the source. To support the growing needs in the Lidgetton community, we set-up Lucky Beans e.V. in Germany in 2015. Through our charity status we are able to offer the possibility of EU citizens receiving a tax reclamation from any donation you may wish to make.
