Many will turn to yoga for support in dealing with the trauma of diagnosis and treatment. Whether the intention is to specialise in this type of work or not, this module will develop confidence and neutrality when approached by someone who is needing healing at a time when life is undergoing challenging times. The module will help address issues concerning safe practice and expectations and help students deliver a practice with high professionalism.
The module will consider the personal qualities as well as the professional skills that are needed in working with people with cancer: caring and compassion, most obviously, but also the maturity and detachment that allow one to care and to be compassionate without becoming inappropriately involved emotionally, or drained energetically. Grounding and emotional maturity are needed: one is working with people who are very ill, some of whom will die. The course will look at this aspect of the teaching, and its unique demands and possible effects on the teacher.
For qualified applicants from all traditions of teaching with at least one year’s teaching experience.
Location: Hemingford Abbots Village Hall, High Street, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, PE28 9AH.
Saturdays in 2019 - Apr 13, May 18, June 15, July 20, Sept 7, Oct 12.
