Pilot study to establish the feasibility of a yoga program & estimate the effect size of a yoga intervention on QoL in patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube & primary peritoneal cancer receiving chemotherapy for the treatment.The goal for each individual question on the questionnaire is to have a 90-95% completion rate. The validated instruments: FACT-O, FACIT-F, FACIT-Sp, CES-D, PROMIS, and PSQI will be scored according to their respective guidelines, and then paired t-tests will be used to compare the pre-yoga and post-yoga means.
