OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (PRWEB) February 19, 2019
When Cathleen Kahn was diagnosed with breast cancer, she taught yoga. But, it wasn’t until after the diagnosis that she understood how much yoga could help her. Kahn’s debut memoir and self-help book, “Badass and Bendy” (published by Balboa Press), illustrates how yoga eventually helped her find happiness and hope through the cancer treatment and recovery process.
“Cancer claims hundreds of thousands of lives each year, with no unequivocal cure in sight,” Kahn says. “Whether you are someone who had or is currently battling cancer, or you’re walking alongside loved ones in this journey, this book gently reaches out to provide valuable insight, connection, and relevant ways to cope with this life-altering disease.”
Written in a series of vignettes, poems and yoga flows, the book presents Kahn’s cancer journey and is specifically designed for readers touched by cancer. Intended to be read in pieces, the yoga flows are geared toward the physical and emotional challenges patients and their caregivers go through. Although it focuses on how yoga helped her through cancer, this book deals with relatable emotions for anyone and yoga flows applicable to anyone’s stress.
