Einstein Researcher Investigates the Healing Benefits of Yoga for Breast Cancer Patients; $230,000 Foundation Grant Will Expand Project

Taking part in an innovative cancer research study conducted at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and its Cancer Center, six women enter a chapel that has been temporarily transformed into a different type of sanctum. Chairs have been moved to the walls, where the women seat themselves awaiting direction from yoga instructor Ricardo Sisco. He greets each woman with a silent nod and a smile while making sure they each have a rolled mat or folded blanket for doing the yoga exercises.
