Een 26 minuten durende mooie documentaire over de wetenschappelijk aangetoonde effecten van yoga beoefening.

 

Yoga appeared to be a feasible intervention and beneficial effects on several physical and psychosocial symptoms were reported.

In patients with breast cancer, effect size on functional well-being was small, and they were moderate to large for psychosocial outcomes.

 

This systematic review found evidence for short-term effects of yoga in improving psychological health in breast cancer patients. The short-term effects on health-related quality of life could not be clearly distinguished from bias. Yoga can be recommended as an intervention to improve psychological health during breast cancer treatment.
