CIC #3:  Yoga for the Cancer Community:  A Gathering of Practitioners

Co-Chairs:  Tari Prinster, MA, RYT and Lara Benusis, E-RYT 500, RCYT 

The rate of cancer survivors is increasing and yoga is a natural bridge that can provide support for people during and after treatment. There are an increasing number of yoga professionals drawn to serving this growing need. Yoga therapists in this emerging field must be able to apply the tools of yoga in the context of a therapeutic relationship. Equally important, is the need to embrace a constantly changing health care environment and a new paradigm of health and well-being while keeping a watchful eye on the research as we interface effective new models of care. It is imperative to develop innovative collaborations while integrating and benefiting from practiced skills and knowledge. In this session, you will hear from colleagues who have brought their abilities and compassion to support the cancer community. This gathering is a unique and intimate opportunity to share stories, to discuss resources and forge new relationships as we draw inspiration from one another. Coming together, we leave better prepared to uphold the best possible future for our communities.
