About the Event
You will learn:
the basic anatomy and physiology of cancer and how it can affect the whole person - body, mind, spirit and relationships.
guidelines on how to integrate people affected by cancer into your classes
how the cancer body may show up and how to modify the basic poses for common effects of treatment.
simple sequences to alleviate symptoms of treatment
how the deepest teachings of yoga can guide you when working in the sphere of life-threatening illness.
We will do a Yoga class using props that simulate some of the effects of chemo and radiotherapy, giving you a window into a direct experience of what the cancer patient may be experiencing. The session will be largely experiential with plenty of opportunity for trainees to practice discussion and self-inquiry.
This is open to yoga teachers and practitioners with at least 2 years experience.
