Cancer Yoga Teacher Training
Cancer has become rampant in our society these days and yoga teachers often face a situation where they have a student who is suffering from cancer or cancer treatment related issues. Teachers do not have enough education or training during the basic 200 level or even 500 level trainings to address these issues.
Marianne Cirone and Poonam have been working with cancer patients, survivors and care givers for many years and will be offering a cancer yoga teacher training in the Fall of 2016. This will be held over two weekends in October.
This training will help yoga teachers in understanding how to simplify and safely modify the yoga poses for a student dealing with issues like scar tissue, lymphedema, neuropathy, chemo brain and other emotional issues like fear, anxiety and depression. The principles of pranayama, Ayurveda, mantra, mudra and meditation will be taught. This training is focused on providing trainees with many tools to help cancer patients and survivors to deal with physical, mental, emotional and spiritual challenges.
