About yoga4cancer TEACHER TRAINING

About yoga4cancer Online + Weekend Program

New and Improved in 2016! In 2015, yoga4cancer launched the first ever Online+Weekend Teacher Training program. This hybrid program utilized technology and self-study whilst retaining the hands-on supervised training that Tari and her team have used over the past decade to train over 1,500 yoga teachers and other compassionate professionals.  We are pleased and very proud that 122 individuals participated in our advanced, specialized training programs in 2015 alone.  And the feedback on the program was amazing with over 98% satisfaction. Read more here.

We took all the helpful feedback and made the program even better!  In 2016, the programs will have 40% more poses & vinyasa, additional week of online training, more webinars and improved tools on adapting all styles of yoga.  The ultimate aim to best prepare our trained teachers to work with the cancer community.  So thank you to all for their support.
