Chelsea, from Wildflower Yoga Therapy, has created a soothing yoga session, suitable for those with a cancer diagnosis, for you to do in your own home.

 

Chelsea is a 200hr qualified Healthcare Yoga Teacher. She undertook her training in Dharamsala which is in the beautiful Himalayan mountains of India.
Unlike other courses, her training focused on different ailments and how the tools of yoga can be used as a complementary therapy to help people re-balance, heal and grow.
"I do not have the classic body shape of the 'Instagram Yoga Practitioners', my body is naturally quite inflexible and through my own practice, I have added blocks, straps and bolsters to help my body achieve certain postures. I believe this has provided me with some invaluable tools and understanding to help people in their journey with yoga."
After practising yoga for more than 5 years, and it helps with her own chronic illnesses, Chelsea began to think about how sedentary lifestyles can lead to poor health and how those who were in hospital and bed-bound, or with limited access to physical activity, could find themselves on a long road to recovery. This inspired her to try and share the benefits she had found in yoga, to help people on their journey.
