This chapter explores yoga and mindfulness-based therapies for cancer survivors and suggests that these approaches are both feasible and safe for this population, and could lead to improvements in fatigue, sleep disorders, and depression. Because this is a developing area of research, studies are limited initial demonstrations, small sample sizes, incomplete reporting of statistical analyses, and generalizability. Self-report measures are focused on in this chapter.
