Certified Yoga teachers may attend this training where I will lead trainees in learning how to design and teach a yoga therapy class to cancer patients and survivors in a safe and therapeutic environment.

In this 3-day training you will learn:

  • - Yoga postures appropriate for survivors of all types of cancer and their therapeutic advantages, contraindications, and modifications;
  • - The science and physiology of cancer, its treatments and side effects, and how yoga can help to reduce pain, build muscle mass and bone, and foster a healthy lifestyle while undergoing chemotherapy, surgeries and/or radiation;
  • - Develop and lead classes compassionately and competently to improve balance, flexibility, and strength and to relieve stress, anxiety and pain that is often associated with cancer.



Ingrid Yang, E-RYT, has been teaching yoga for the last 15 years and cancer therapy yoga classes for over 10 years. She is the author of Hatha Yoga Asanas and is currently pursuing her M.D. degree at Rush University in Chicago, IL, and will be offering this special training weekend to impart her uniqe combination of clinical knowledge and yoga expertise. Ingrid's experience also includes owning and directing a yoga center in Durham, NC, where she worked as a clinical oncology research associate in the laboratory of Dr. Kimberly Blackwell at Duke University Medical Center's Morris Cancer Clinic. At Duke, she focused her research on breast cancer and genetic and protein signatures demonstrated in chemotherapy treatment. She has specifically designed this training for yoga teachers to learn how to teach cancer yoga therapy with skill and confidence. Having worked closely with cancer patients in both the clinical and yoga settings, Ingrid is uniquely qualified to inform and inspire teachers to lead cancer patients though the healing process of Yoga.

Upon completion, teachers will receive a certificate of completion that may be applied toward Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Units (CEUs): 35 total CEUs, including 30-contact CEUs.

Pre-requisite: 200-hour Teacher Training
