Working Therapeutically with Cancer:
A practical application of yoga, mindfulness and self compassion for those living with cancer.
Many come to see a cancer diagnosis as an opportunity to reassess their lives and priorities: for them, the illness becomes a catalyst for healing, spiritual growth, and transformation. Yoga, mindfulness and self-compassion can play a significant role in this transformative healing process, and those who share this knowledge can help individuals move forward from this profoundly critical point in their lives to wherever their path may lead them. To do this is a privilege, and the teaching is deeply rewarding.
This British Wheel of Yoga module is a synthesis of professional training and personal development and is not just for those interested in this work. As yoga teachers coming into contact with cancer or having lost loved ones, the module unravels the complexities of a cancer diagnosis to bring personal healing and professional development for all those affected by cancer. A percentage of those taking the module will go on to teach in this field whilst others will enhance their general teaching to confidently integrate those with cancer into their community classes.
Above all, the module brings an appreciation and preparedness for the challenges of this rewarding work.
