Upcoming Teacher Trainings

Therapeutic Yoga in Cancer Treatment

Over 2.5 million people in the UK are living with cancer with this figure predicted to rise to 4 million by 2030. Interest in the use of yoga therapy interventions is increasing among health professionals and cancer patients who are seeking out alternative ways of managing symptoms, side effects of treatments and finding ways of moving forwards after cancer. As yoga teachers and therapists we need to be informed and prepared to meet this growing need for alternative interventions in order to support people holistically and safely at all stages of the cancer journey.

Who will this day suit:

Yoga teachers or therapists interested in working with people with cancer.

The day will be lecture, community sharing and practical work in groups and pairs.

Course content:

  • What is cancer? Overview, incidence and prevalence
  • Aetiology of cancer; Common causes and treatments
  • Viewing cancer from the perspective of the koshas
  • Common issues and side effects of cancer and cancer treatments; to include pain, fatigue, nausea, lymphoedema and osteoporosis
  • Risks associated when teaching yoga and pranayama for cancer at all stages – keeping your students safe.
  • Rebuilding strength and moving forward after cancer
  • Using Yoga Nidra and relaxation tools
  • Ethics and challenges for teachers and therapists and the importance of self-care and supervision
  • Useful resources

This day will offer an initial insight and overview of the tools you will need to develop when working within the complex field of cancer, privately, in social care or NHS settings. Further in depth CPD will be offered 7th October – 12th October 2020.
