Urban Yogis - Cancer Recovery and Yoga
In Meditation And Yoga - On May 6, 2013
Artist Yuko Kodama shares her inspiring story of healing and transformation and the role of yoga in her recovery.
Yuko's cancer began in her mouth, and her art reflects the pain and memory associated with that part of her body. We visit her studio to get an in-depth look at the relationship between her struggle with cancer and her art. We also follow her to the yoga studio with Eddie Stern, Yuko's yoga teacher for almost two decades, who shares his perspective on her illness and recovery, and how yoga practice contributes to spiritual strength and perseverance.
