ABC star Robin Roberts revealed in a new post that she has Yoga to thank in her recovery process after treating cancer.


GMA host, Robin Roberts is a two-time cancer survivor who was courageous enough to go through rigorous treatment.

She, however, had a tip to share on how she handled her recuperation process in an Instagram appreciation post.

Roberts shared a one-photo post which showed her in the interior of a yoga class with her instructor, Terri Richardson. In the post, the TV host wore a grey t-shirt paired with black yoga pants while Terri wore a similar outfit.

The two raised their fists in the air while Robin captioned, "I'm grateful to yoga instructor @terigandyrichardson for introducing me to @yoga4cancer… "


The 49-year-old went on to describe "Yoga for cancer" as "a supportive practice, designed to help with the side effects of cancer treatments." Roberts went on to announce an Instagram yoga session while asking her fans to join in!



In the comments, Robin's followers were happy about her health improvement as they applauded the daytime host. While some shared words of encouragement, others decided to talk about their experiences.

At home, Robin got busy with setting up her make-shift studio.

Someone wrote, "That's so awesome. My husband overcame his need for alcohol with Yoga…" Another added, "I beat my breast cancer a year ago, and yoga really helped my mind…"



Roberts might have a seemingly glamorous life on TV and being a socialite, but she has weathered some storms concerning her health. Once sitting on "The Dr. Oz Show," the ESPN alum recounted how she battled cancer.

Robin made it known that having beat cancer and other health conditions, she wants to be a symbol of hope for others in similar situations. She explained that after treatment, she became more painstaking about her intake of food and also started meditating.



In 2007, the former sportscaster overcame an early stage of breast cancer. And after a while, she was diagnosed with a rare form of the illness called Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), which affects the bone marrow.

Roberts went through several rigorous chemotherapy sessions, and in 2012, she underwent a bone marrow transplant. Her sister, Sally-Ann, had been the donor, and the star anchor was able to return to her job on GMA.



Just like many studio shows have been put on hold, GMA is not left out, and due to Robin Roberts' health history, she presently hosts from home.

At home, Robin got busy with setting up her make-shift studio; she also informed fans on her virtual show that, she took some items from the office.

With the increased rate of COVID-19 patients, in the US, it is pertinent that the GMA anchor keeps to social distancing and also update fans from home.
