Objective of the Conference

The 11th International Conference – YOGA IN CANCER CARE endeavors to bring together multidisciplinary experts, including physicians, integrative medicine practitioners, cancer care teams, regulatory bodies, cancer survivors, caregivers, nutritionists, and scholars from around the world at Kaivalyadhama, India. Our objective is to deliberate on the transformative potential of yoga as a holistic self-care tool, addressing various dimensions of human well-being.

Kaivalyadhama’s sustained efforts in integrating "Yoga in Cancer Care"

Kaivalyadhama has been actively engaged in improving the quality of life of cancer patients and survivors since 2015.

Our long-term study conducted on our residential “Beyond Cancer” programme offered from 2015-2017 showed remarkable improvements in the mental health and quality of life of cancer survivors even after 1 year of returning back to their normal lives. They also reported psychological empowerment in leading their life with increased resilience, peace and equanimity after completing the programme.

Yoga therapy in cancer promotes holistic well-being through relaxation, breathwork, and mindful movements, fostering unity of body, breath, mind, and spirit
