Claire Marti shares a wonderful story about not just her battle with cancer. And it’s a story of victory.

Claire Marti’s Fighting Cancer Story

As a yoga teacher, I’d always known of the incredible benefits of yoga for the body, mind, and spirit. Until I was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer, however, I had no idea how much yoga would help me weather the toughest time of my life. I credit teaching and practicing yoga as vital components in my journey back to radiant health.
In January 2010, I truly felt that I was living my dream. I had exited corporate America the year prior and was happily balancing teaching yoga full-time with a blossoming writing career. I was in a relationship with the man of my dreams, living close to the ocean. To put it simply, I was happy.
Out of the blue, I found a lump in my breast. I was shocked and devastated, especially because I had a clear mammogram three months earlier. I was healthy, fit and felt invincible.
Over the course of that year, I endured three surgeries, six rounds of aggressive chemotherapy and almost two months of daily radiation. I balanced out this assault on my body with a primarily plant-based diet filled with anti-oxidants, daily exercise, acupuncture and most importantly, yoga. My doctors often commented that I was their “superwoman patient” because I never got really nauseous through chemo and seemed to maintain a comparatively high level of energy during treatment.
Don’t get me wrong: many days I was exhausted and despondent. Despite the fluctuations in my energy levels, I continued to teach most of my yoga classes and got certified to teach Yoga for Cancer Therapy while undergoing chemotherapy myself.
Cancer attacks your body, but it also attacks your mental well-being. Conventional medicine is aimed at destroying the physical symptoms of the cancer, but can fail to address the significant effects cancer has on the mind and spirit. Yoga addresses the entire person.
Now I offer specialized yoga for cancer recovery classes designed to empower my students to help themselves. Primary benefits include learning to handle side-effects of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, boosting energy, improving mood, learning relaxation and breathing techniques to combat fatigue, stress and pain, restoring flexibility, strength, and range of motion, and enhancing lymphatic flow, digestion and circulation. I am passionate about sharing this gift with others going through any type of cancer to help others on this journey.
When I’m not teaching yoga, I write romance. My latest book, Sunset in Laguna, features a strong, compassionate heroine and the tall, dark, and handsome PTSD suffering veteran with whom she falls in love. Here’s a bit about the book.
