This weekend immersion is for 200‐hour yoga teachers and health care practitioners who wish to learn the theory and practice of yoga therapy for cancer patients and survivors. You can take part two of the training as a stand-alone immersion or in combination with part one, Yoga for Cancer: Physical Practices, which we hope to offer again in 2019. In this 12‐hour training, you will learn how to guide your students through this life‐changing healing journey.

- How to adapt common subtle practices for patients in active treatment, what is safe and what should be avoided
- The importance of working with the subtle body including, the koshas, gunas, chakras, doshas, nadis, and vayus.
- Benefits of using pranayama and mudra as stand‐alone practices, and in combination with asana and meditation.

- How to structure a yoga nidra script, and use guided meditation in your classes.
