Yoga and Breast Cancer
It was a pleasure to find this article about my friend, Camille Kitrell's, special brand of yoga. I was lucky enough to take a yoga class with her several years ago, and have invited her to present a workshop each year at Celebration of Life.
Here is a quote from baystateparent.com:
These three woman eventually found their way to Camille Kittrell, owner of Exclusive Yoga© in Waltham, MA.
A Unique Program
for Breast Cancer Recovery
Over the past ten years, Camille has pioneered a unique program of rehabilitative yoga that meets the specific needs of breast cancer survivors at various stages of treatment and recovery.
Camille's yoga routines restore upper body range of motion and flexibility and rebuild total body muscular strength —without poses or movements that may cause pain or incite lymphedema (abnormal swelling and pain in the arm after surgical removal of multiple lymph nodes and radiation during breast cancer treatment).
"It's not just pure yoga moves," Camille explains. "I draw on a lot of disciplines—like ballet, sports, Hatha yoga, stretching. It's Camille Yoga," she quips.
