THE STORY OF MY BUTTERFLY – THE NIKKI BOKLUND THYROID CANCER AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
This is a story about Nikki, told by Nikki, a healthy, happy mom, wife, friend, sister and most definitely a survivor.
Nikki is a yoga teacher based in Sweden who is on a mission to travel the globe sharing her story of recovery from the “best” cancer to have. It is a story about her journey, her recovery, ….and her butterfly – the thyroid gland which is shaped like a butterfly which wraps around the trachea and it controls breathing, heart rate, muscle strength, ovulation, cholesterol levels as well as body weight.
With the increasing occurrences of thyroid imbalances and diseases, thyroid conditions are becoming very common, however recovery from such afflictions are not as easy as some might think. It’s been often said that thyroid cancer is probably the best cancer because it’s highly treatable in the majority of cases, but never without individual and personal trauma. This sharing session is to bring people closer to condition; to get an idea of how it might feel to be both a sufferer and a survivor.
We would like anyone and everyone who’s truly interested in finding out more about thyroid cancer to drop by and spend a little time to listen and to join Nikki and us in a program consisting of:
1). SUN SALUTATIONS + YOGIC SLEEP (NIDRA)
Don’t worry, it’s going be accessible to all levels, even if you’ve not done any yoga before. We’ll do these in 4 sets of 27 Sun Salutations, setting each set with an intention. Everything will be practiced with guidance at an easy pace so we will be with you all the way. We will end the session with deep stretches & simple Nidra meditation.
2). A SHARING SESSION
Sharing session which includes Nikki’s journey, how to check your thyroid gland as well as general symptoms and statistics from around the globe.
