The nature of the subject of cancer means that this teacher training module involves a significant degree of personal as well as professional development, as the tough issues it embraces are confronted. Most of the teachers who have taken this course have found this aspect valuable for teaching generally as well as specifically for those with cancer.
For many people cancer becomes a catalyst for transformation, healing and spiritual growth and this course provides many insights into the experience of cancer, and provides an approach within which yoga, mindfulness and self-compassion can support the person physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually through the experience of cancer.
The course considers the personal qualities as well as the professional skills that are needed: caring and compassion, most obviously, but also the clarity and detachment that enable us to care and to be compassionate without becoming over-involved emotionally, or drained energetically.
This module was first developed by Julie Friedeberger entitled "Yoga for People Living with Cancer” and contains the body of her work. It has been further developed by Kari Knight over the last two years and is now available annually on Zoom.
