Yoga International Features Cora Wen’ s Egg-Oriented Breast Cancer Survivors and Thrivers Sequence

The Fall 2012 issue of the Himalayan Institute’s magazine, Yoga International features a wonderful article written by Egg Friend Cora Wen.  In the article entitled Rock Your Way Toward Healing, Cora shares an Egg-oriented therapeutic yoga sequence she designed for breast cancer Survivors and Thrivers.

According to BreastCancer.org, about 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. With such staggering statistics, there is an ever-growing need for those afflicted by Breast Cancer to have support and community. We are proud to offer our support in collaboration with Cora Wen and the healing art of yoga.

“An unconventional yoga prop can calm the nervous system and assuage the fears of those coping with a breast cancer diagnosis, going through treatment or healing postsurgery.”

“While conventional yoga props allow you to experience a sense of opening and release, they don’t lend themselves well to a back-and-forth lullaby motion. So how exactly do you rock yourself into a gentle calm? I use Three Minute Eggs. Their sloping edges provide a rocking motion that gives the spine a safe way to release. This motion supports deep, conscious breathing and calms the nervous system so it can sort through—and make sense of—what’s going on.”

Cora Wen travels the world sharing her expertise in therapeutic yoga and we are honoured to be a part of the work she is doing. For more about Cora visit her website at corawen.com
