There are now more people living with a cancer diagnosis than ever before. Chances are high that you will meet some of these students in your general population classes. Learn how to work with this population and understand their special needs in this 12-hour online course. Through a combination of lecture and practice, you’ll gather the information necessary to make informed decisions about what to say/what not to say, what to include/exclude in a practice, and how to address common side effects. In this 12-hour course, you will learn:

  • medical terms and treatments as they relate to a yoga practice

  • short and long-term side effects

  • contraindications and modifications

  • psychological effects of cancer

  • how to create an inclusive and safe environment


The training will include a handout on safe, go-to poses and modifications to common asana practices that may be contraindicated for someone dealing with cancer. 


12 CEUs available for RYTs who complete this course.
