Yoga and Breast Cancer

February 2, 2010
by Laura Boitano

The study I'm conducting is for my senior research thesis and is looking at the effect of yoga on the immune system of breast cancer patients.  I am currently recruiting patients on a rolling basis for both the YOGA and NON-YOGA groups.  I ask that patients in the yoga group participate in yoga at least two times a week.  They can participate at home or at a yoga studio.  If in the YOGA group, I will find FREE yoga near the patient's home.  Patients in the NON-YOGA group will simply have to answer survey questions bi-weekly over the phone or via e-mail about their health and cold symptoms (approx. 5 minute survey.)  Those in the yoga group will be asked the same questions.  The study lasts a total of four months once the patient starts.  Patients must have received chemotherapy within the last 2 years or are currently undergoing chemotherapy.

My contact information is or 631-838-1587.

I don't have a url link but I had an article written about my study over the summer and the link is below.
