There are 14.3 million Americans living with cancer today. Increasing evidence demonstrates that yoga provides physical and emotional support during and after cancer treatment. Survivors want and need yoga–but what kind? It is commonly believed the best kind of yoga for cancer is gentle and restorative in nature. This idea is misleading, limiting, and potentially harmful.
Presenting the practical science based y4c methodology, this workshop starts with what cancer patients and survivors really need and want, analyzes the benefits of an active yoga practice, challenges misconceptions about cancer and yoga, and demonstrates poses and language that create courage and wellness. Discover the unique methodology now used by more than 1,500 yoga teachers to cultivate healing yoga for the cancer community across the globe. Come with curiosity and compassion; leave with clarity and confidence!
Some discussion, lots of demonstration and asana. All are welcome.
