Yoga for Cancer
With Kristy Price, E-RYT 200, RYT 500, Certified Yoga Therapist
Instructor Yoga Club Teacher Training
When working in Integrative Oncology a yoga therapist must demonstrate knowledge of pathology regarding the subject matter as well as a deep understanding of yogic principles. Although yoga is not a cure for cancer, given the appropriate therapeutic prescription it can alleviate symptoms caused by disease and treatment and enhance the quality of life for cancer survivors who choose to participate. It is important that a yoga therapist understand contraindications regarding asana and can modify each individual accordingly, whether in a private or group environment. This module will provide you with a foundational knowledge base for pathology, assessment, professionalism, safe implementation, stress reduction, and coping mechanisms.
Learning Objectives: You will learn:
Required Materials: Yoga Mat, 10′ Yoga Strap, 4” Yoga Block
