A program using low-intensity yoga and breathing exercises has been shown to be beneficial in combating insomnia and fatigue in cancer survivors.
In a study of 410 cancer survivors in nine different community sites around the country who had completed treatment in the previous two years and had been experiencing sleep problems for at least two months, half were assigned to attend a 75 minute yoga session twice a week for a month. Most of the patients were women breast cancer survivors.
