Integrating a student with a cancer diagnosis into a mixed ability class


Date: 26th January 2020

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Location: The Light Centre

Type of Event: CPD Days

Places Available: 14

For many who discover they have cancer, they will turn to yoga for support in dealing with the trauma of diagnosis and treatment, and for help in their healing process. Most teachers will at some point in their teaching lives have students with cancer in their classes, or will be approached to work with individuals. 

There is a great and growing need for teachers in this area of work and this IST day will help teachers to develop the necessary professionalism to feel confident when integrating a student with cancer diagnosis into their class. 

The day will explore the vast potential of yoga for healing with simple movement, breathing, relaxation and meditation techniques and will explore the sensitivities in dealing with someone who has a cancer diagnosis 

Combination of lecture and practical. Group and individual work
