This free program uses techniques such as mindfulness meditation, yoga and stretching, breath awareness and body awareness. Kim Romer and Nancy Aldrich are the facilitators.

Yoga Community has welcomed MHS approach of utilizing yoga in its cancer care.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that although introduced and nourished by Hinduism, yoga was a world heritage and liberation powerhouse to be utilized by all. According to Patanjali who codified it in Yoga Sutra, yoga was a methodical effort to attain perfection, through the control of the different elements of human nature, physical and psychical.

According to US National Institutes of Health, yoga may help one to feel more relaxed, be more flexible, improve posture, breathe deeply, and get rid of stress. According to a recently released “2016 Yoga in America Study”, about 37 million Americans (which included many celebrities) now practice yoga; and yoga is strongly correlated with having a positive self image.  Yoga is the repository of something basic in the human soul and psyche, Rajan Zed adds.

Award-winning MHS, health care organization founded in 1939 which offers cancer care besides various other services, has received Outstanding Achievement Award from Commission on Cancer besides various other honors. John Loewenberg is Board Chairman, while Robert L. Lord Junior is the Chief Executive Officer.
