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, MD, JD, E-RYT-500, co-author of Hatha Yoga Asanas, has been teaching yoga since 1999 and cancer therapy yoga since 2006. She is physician specializing in rehabilitation medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL, with a particular emphasis on spinal cord injury, sports medicine and cancer rehab. Dr. Yang is also the founder and past director of Blue Point Yoga, a yoga center in Durham, NC, where she developed this training while she was employed as a research associate at Duke Medical Center's breast oncology department. 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 certified yoga teachers to learn how to teach cancer yoga therapy with skill and confidence. Having worked closely with cancer patients in both clinical and yoga settings, Dr. Yang 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.
