Service Description

If you are a yoga teacher who wants to help people coping with cancer to live better, a student of yoga or a professional in another field such as hospice work, nursing, physiotherapy, or psychotherapy, our Yoga for Cancer Teacher Training will give you a grounding in the diverse aspects of working with those on the cancer journey. Cancer affects nearly all of us in some way. A diagnosis has a huge impact on one's life and those of our loved ones, and the repercussions extend well beyond the physical body and the duration of treatment. Just as no two people experience a yoga pose in the same way, no two people experience cancer in the same way. Pain and suffering are not always proportionate to the trauma on the body and are felt in a subjective and deeply personal way. This course aims to give you a grounding in the psychological, emotional and physical reality of cancer, so that you can share yoga in a way that is physically and emotionally safe for the attendees. You will also learn specialised therapeutic movement for common physical limitations caused by the illness or by the treatment, and learn therapeutic applications of other facets of yoga practice in order to serve the whole person - body, mind, spirit and relationships. The course is designed, written and led by Morven Hamilton, a YAP accredited Senior Yoga Teacher, YAP accredited TrainerPro and breast cancer survivor. Morven has been training teachers to teach Yoga for Cancer since 2016 and developed her holistic approach while working as a yoga teacher and course facilitator at Penny Brohn Cancer Care UK. You can read more about Morven on the About page of this site Included in the cost of the course is a comprehensive training manual for Yoga for Cancer, including:  a ready made six-week Yoga for Cancer course,  transcripts of Yoga Nidras and meditations you can use in a Yoga for Cancer class,  Mindfulness for Health,  Restorative Yoga  Class sign up forms ...and much more. The manual gives you everything you need for your onward journey in teaching Yoga for people affected by cancer.
