Yoga is a form of gentle exercise that incorporates stretching postures and breathing techniques to improve your mental wellbeing, flexibility and physical health. The practice started in India at least 5,000 years ago and has evolved into a popular pastime.

Sue De Cesare is Executive Director of the cancer care charity, Yes To Life, which offers numerous yoga workshops for cancer patients.
