More about Yoga for cancer teacher training

A mindful, whole-person approach to yoga for people affected by cancer

If you’re looking for a way to evolve your skill set, develop a specialism or deepen your understanding of yoga, the Healing the Whole Person teacher training will provide you with in-depth knowledge of how yoga and mindfulness can help people to live better. 

Healing the Whole Person is a heart-led, mindful approach to yoga for cancer, which means that it’s based on the concepts of compassion and empathy and  integrates the Buddhist mindfulness worldview. Mindfulness can be practised alongside Yoga, or integrated into the practice, providing the practitioner with an accessible resource for coping with the physical and mental effects of cancer, diagnosis and treatment. Therapeutic applications of Yoga enable practitioners to increase their body awareness, befriend their bodies, manage pain and strengthen their immune systems – to name just a few benefits. 

This course is structured to engage and nurture all learning styles.

  • Teacher-to-student presentation
  • Peer-to-peer teaching practice
  • Led practice
  • Discussion
  • Enactment
  • Choice of case study or assignment to gain final certification

You’ll assimilate the course content in a way that is meaningful and grounded in experience.

Trainees are encouraged to explore their own responses to life threatening illness and end-of-life.  We’ll use Yoga props to recreate some of the physical movement restrictions that patients often suffer. Through this and other the course elements, you’ll be encouraged in your own personal transformation towards an embodied understanding of the person with cancer.

Learn to see the complete person, and to help them realise once again their own wholeness.
