The general health conditions of these persons are not good. Since last 2 decades, the inmates of Home for Cancer Patients are practicing Yoga under the guidance of expert teachers. Renowned Yoga Instructors from Shri Ambika Yoga Kutir are conducting Yoga classes every Saturday from 5 pm to 6:30 pm. Yoga helps:
· To lead a healthy life,
· To overcome ego and live peacefully,
· To give up ill practices, e.g., Tobacco & Alcohol consumption etc.

· Helps practicing Yoga to enhance ones inner strength and control the senses.
Practicing these instructions many of the patients are feeling better physically and mentally.
