Tari Prinster is a cancer survivor, yoga teacher and author. She is the Founder of Yoga4Cancer, LLC (y4c) and the Retreat Project (nonprofit) – businesses that are bringing specialized yoga cancer survivors through classes & retreats. Also she leads a robust teacher training program to help enable yoga teachers to best adapt all styles to fit the unique needs of cancer patients & survivors.
In Tari’s own words, she recounts her background with yoga and cancer: ‘When I was fifty, I started a yoga practice on a hunch it would ease menopausal symptoms. It did! That was sixteen years ago. Today, I am an example that it is never too late to start, never too late to change. Yoga made me feel younger and stand straighter. I sleep better, my weight is good, and my bones are strong.
I found yoga a powerful tool to manage the daily challenges of cancer treatments as well as the side effects and life-long vulnerabilities they create. I discovered yoga was more than a way to stay healthy. It gave me emotional support and spiritual comfort so needed during recovery.
I was curious why yoga was doing so much for me. My research made it clear why yoga strengthens the immune system, thus providing, among other things, protection against a cancer reoccurrence.

The prevelance of this horrific disease has caused us all to experience it in some way.

Today I have a very special women, that is not only a breast cancer survivor herself, but is the "Community Outreach and Patient Manager, Certified Breast Navigator and Breast Advocate at the Honorhealth Breast Health and Research Center in Phoenix.

Did you get an oral cancer screening? Are you sure? Seems most people don’t know if they have had this important screening or not. What is it, what does it feel like, and do you really want to wait for noticeable symptoms of loose teeth and difficulty swallowing. One person an hour dies of oral cancer. If you’re not getting an oral cancer screening ask for one, if you’re not telling your patients they’re getting one, start talking!
