THE AIM

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 CPD course will provide you with experiential, in-depth knowledge of how you can help people to live better with cancer.


The course is also suitable for those looking to work with people with other long-term or life-threatening illnesses. The course is designed, written and led by Morven Hamilton, a YAP accredited Senior Yoga Teacher and breast cancer survivor.

COURSE CONTENT

The focus of this course is on experiential learning. Each week we will explore various practices that can be beneficial for certain people on the cancer journey. We will  identify difficulties that people can face either physically, mentally or emotionally and explore the benefits of practices that can alleviate suffering and promote wellbeing, moving from surviving to thriving.


Each week you will be given self-study to do during the course of the week. Assignments will include creating specialised sequences, doing experiential work, personal reflection and journalling.

COURSE STRUCTURE

This yoga training course is structured to engage and nurture all learning styles, with a focus on experiential learning. You will assimilate the course content in a way that is meaningful and grounded in experience.

We’ll use props to recreate some of the physical movement restrictions that patients often suffer. Through this and other course elements, you’ll be encouraged in your own personal transformation towards an embodied understanding of the person with cancer.
