2024.08.24 | Yoga Workshop for Breast Cancer Recovery by Michelle Lam (In-Person & Live-Online)

Embark on a journey of renewal and empowerment with our exclusive 6-hour Yoga workshop on August 24, 2024 at Komune Living & Wellness Malaysia, meticulously crafted to support those touched by breast cancer. Guided by the renowned physiotherapist and Yoga Anatomy Teacher, Michelle Lam. You can choose to participate in this workshop either in-person or live-online.

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer, accounting for 1 in 8 cancer diagnoses worldwide. In 2020, 2.3 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer, resulting in 685,000 deaths globally. With increased awareness, when detected early and in the localized stage (where there is no sign that the cancer has spread outside of the breast), the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%.

What concerns arise after mastectomy? What precautions are necessary for breast reconstruction? Are there any general concerns during chemotherapy and radiotherapy? Can Yoga assist in recovery? Are there any contraindications? How does breast cancer affect Yoga practice? I’m certain the list of questions will continue…

Join us to explore how yoga can positively impact breast cancer recovery. Whether you’re a survivor, caregiver, or health enthusiast, this workshop provides valuable insights and practical tools. Let’s come together to promote holistic well-being and support those affected by breast cancer.
