restorative yoga

I'm looking for information online about "restorative yoga." I'm very interested in learning more about it. Several people have told me about the benefits of yoga in general and more specifically, restorative yoga. According to the articles that I have read, restorative yoga is a great and gentle way for cancer patients or other individuals recovering from injury to help make their bodies stronger and thus, make them feel more relaxed. It sounds like the perfect thing for me, but of course I must try it out first. So as I learn a bit more about restorative yoga, hopefully I'll soon find a place where I can test it out.

I know where you can take a yoga class that is geared for restoration. I have the brochure and it is put on by Memorial Sloan Kettering but you do not need to be a patient of theirs and it is held outside of the hospital.
I will mail it to you.
I think it will be great for you!

Duane. Been following your journey. Have not been leaving messages. Got your site of LLS board a while back. Glad you are doing so well. Don't overdue it. The fatigue can kick you in the butt for sometime. I "had" AML. Had transplant. MUD. Doing real well. No big gvh just some nasty arthritis, so far. Did your friend, you mentioned, have arthritis before his transplant? Am 10 months out. Hope you fair as well as I have. Been truely blessed. Am 49yrs old. Looking forward to going back to work so my husband and I can travel too. Good luck on your upcoming travel plans. Maybe you can have your pet scan done where ever you are? Pam

Hi Pam. Thanks for keeping abreast of my journey. :)

Yes, Nick, my former roommate had arthritis beforehand. I don't know, however, if it was as bad as it is now. We both had follow-up appointments around the same time today at the hospital, but our paths didn't meet up unforunately.

A few people suggested, like you, that I may be able to have my scans done abroad. In fact, I asked my doctor today about it and he received my plans quite well. He said he thought there are some good PET-CT centers in Asia, for example, so yes, there's hope for my idea.

Thanks for leaving a message and if possible, stay in touch. Your message means a lot! Best of happiness to you and your husband (and oh, bon voyage). :)
