Yoga for Breast Cancer Survivors

April 2018 Breast Support Group learned about Yoga

In April, the Hall-DiGioia Center for Breast Care was pleased to welcome certified yoga instructor Mercedes Bermejo to their offices.  


 Drs. Hall and DiGioia recognize that breast cancer treatment and recovery can place a lot of stress on patients and survivors, so they invited Mercedes to the monthly Patient Support Group meeting at their Jersey City office.  Mercedes led the group in a 45 minute chair yoga seminar, which proved to be relaxing and stress relieving for all.  


"Stress management during treatment and recovery is so important in the overall health and well being of a patient, so we were so happy to have Mercedes leadus in  a yoga seminar,"  says Dr. Julie DiGioia.  


"We all felt great after the session!"
