I am a 57 year old athlete. In 2015 I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma ER and HER2 positive. It’s considered a new cancer, and is also a second diagnosis – I went thru breast cancer treatment nineteen years ago in my late thirties. I got the news this time at the end of completing my 200 hour hot power yoga teacher training.
One of my first questions…when can I get back to hot power yoga, running, biking, hiking…all the things I love. Some gentle stretching is good they told me. This is not my practice I said. I researched like crazy online…and found nothing that mirrored my situation so I decided to share my story for other woman wondering the same thing.
This is not a medical log. I am not a personal trainer. This is simply my story of my life before and after breast cancer…a look at both sides…now.
