Restorative Yoga for Symptom Management and Stress Reduction in Women With Ovarian Cancer


OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the feasibility of implementing a restorative yoga intervention as a
complementary supportive therapy for women with ovarian or breast cancer.

- Measure changes in fatigue, psychosocial distress (anxiety, depression), psychological
well-being (positive emotions), and overall quality of life from baseline to completion
of the study treatment.

OUTLINE: This is a pilot study.

Patients undergo a 75-minute restorative yoga session once a week for 10 weeks.

Patients complete questionnaires regarding fatigue, psychological distress (anxiety,
depression), positive affect, and quality of life at baseline, immediately after the final
yoga session, and then at 2 months after the final yoga session.
