Cancer touches the lives of all of us. In the US and UK, 1 in 2 women and men will develop cancer at some point in their lives, according to the British Journal of Cancer.

Even if we are lucky enough not to contract cancer ourselves, we all have close relatives and friends who will be affected by the disease.

The good news is that as cancer treatment improves, more people are living longer despite a cancer diagnosis.

Unfortunately, that also means that they will live longer with the side effects of cancer treatment and the constant threat of a recurrence.

Support for those living with side effects from cancer is often poor or non-existent, says UK-based yoga for cancer expert Vicky Fox. 

However, there is growing research evidence that practicing yoga can have a considerable positive impact on those living with cancer. 

But how? While yoga can be an incredibly empowering tool for cancer survivors, there are numerous additional considerations that come into play when practicing yoga after cancer.

In this online course, Yoga and Cancer specialist Vicky Fox, author of Yoga for Cancer: The A to Z of C, will show how yoga can help mitigate the side effects of cancer diagnosis and treatment to help empower anyone diagnosed with cancer to cope better with the symptoms and lingering side effects of treatment. 

What you will learn

  • Overview of cancer terminology, diagnosis, and treatment: Understanding stress, fear, and anxiety, the impact of living with cancer, and how to start creating a toolbox of poses and adjustments to help with the side effects of treatment and diagnosis.
  • Balancing Safety and Side Effects: How can you create a safe practice and a supportive and healing environment where people can practice? Addressing the most common side effects and what we have in our yoga toolbox that can support those impacted.
  • Recorded yoga for cancer practice, this class is suitable for anyone living with cancer. Will address the lymphatic system and how yoga can boost the immune system.

This Course Also Includes:

  • Yoga Practice Video:  Vicky will create a yoga practice video to accompany this course.
  • Recordings of All Sessions: It’s generally acknowledged that many people only retain 10-20 percent of what they learn in a workshop. You will get access to the recordings of all webinar sessions – both MP3 (downloadable) and MP4 (streaming online), enabling you to go back and listen to the workshop as many times as you like.
  • Transcripts of All Sessions: Ever wanted to refer to a particular part of a course? Even the best note-takers miss a point every so often. With the webinar session transcripts, you can refer to particularly important passages or clarify sections you doubted.
