ABOUT THE TRAINING
Once one is touched by a cancer diagnosis, life is never the same. At a time when life can spin out of control, yoga provides powerful tools for navigating the cancer experience.

While offering a solid overview of the clinical aspects of cancer, the focus of this training will be on the practical application of yoga techniques for this population.
