The yoga4cancer Certificate Program is a pre-requisite for anyone hoping to work with the cancer community. The 75 hour program is designed for yoga professionals to create safe and effective Oncology Yoga interventions.
yoga4cancer is a leading Oncology Yoga method designed to support all cancer types, stages and needs. The evidence informed yoga method is based on an active Vinyasa yoga style (in line with survivorship guidelines) that encourages movement coordinated with breath and accompanied by well-supported restorative poses to manage the short and long term side effects left by cancer and treatments. It is adaptable to meet the needs of cancer patients and survivors at any stage of treatment and recovery, and it can be applied in various ways by professionals of many different yoga styles and backgrounds.
The 75 hour Certificate Program is designed to be self-paced and flexible for various schedules, our global community and learning styles. The program is best achieved by doing at least 4 hours of work per week over the 6 month program duration. Strategic events and large assignments have set deadlines to ensure comprehension and program completion, but how and when you study, practice and learn each week is largely up to you!
There are 15 live events scheduled throughout the Certificate Program. Each event is unique and designed to support your learning, create community, and answer questions. The live events schedule is available for download.
Live events and strategic assignment deadlines provide an over-arching schedule to help our community manage their time and provide an effective learning experience. Please review the specifics as provided in the registration page.
