Background: The practice of yoga has been shown to improve disease- and treatment-related side effects in the noncurative cancer patient. Objective: This user experience study aimed to examine the feasibility and usefulness of a DVD-based yoga program for young adult cancer patients with a noncurative diagnosis. Methods: Participants were asked to partake in a 7-week DVD-based yoga program and complete measures of program use and usefulness. Results: Nine patients expressed study interest and 5 consented to participate. Four completed the full study protocol. Participants reported being satisfied with the program and described that it provided an opportunity for self-care. Improvements in functional, physical, and spiritual well-being and overall quality of life were found. Barriers included competing time demands and feeling unwell. No adverse events were reported. Conclusion: The program was viewed as an accessible and useful activity option; however, a desire for greater social support from relatable others was highlighted.
