Healthcare Professional Program

Program for non-yoga certified professionals.

Over the past 20 years, our Oncology Yoga Certificate program has attracted many professionals outside the field of yoga. These professionals are often Physical and Massage Therapists, Psychologists, Doctors, Pilates Instructors, Social Workers and even hospital administrators. Our program has also sparked curiosity within folks who do not wish to teach yoga but would like to gain more insight and support for their own personal or professional pursuits.

In the past, we have invited these individuals into the larger Certificate program, but this has not best served them, because the Certificate program is robust and designed for yoga teachers and therapists. For this reason, we are developing a specific program for non-yoga professionals. This program will deliver valuable elements of the longer Certificate Program but will not include the application of the yoga4cancer Methodology, including the requirement of a teaching practicum submission, nor any evaluation of the teaching skills required for Oncology Yoga professionals.

About the Non-Yoga Professional Program:

A 30 hour* online program will be 100% self study via videos, assignments, worksheets, quizzes and practices designed for busy professionals worldwide.

Program will launch early 2024 and will be available for immediate access.

You will learn:

  • Healthcare guidelines and research on the role of yoga for the cancer community 
  • Facts about cancer and cancer treatments
  • The physics and physiology of yoga
  • Review of the scientific foundation inherent in Oncology Yoga.
  • The common short and long-term side-effects of treatments
  • How Oncology Yoga can mitigate side effects, improve daily functioning and long-term health
  • Trauma informed language and approach
  • Risks and benefits of yoga for cancer patients and survivors
  • Applications of Oncology Yoga
  • Sample Practice of Oncology Yoga
  • Review of the method foundation

This program is not designed for yoga professionals (e.g. yoga therapist or yoga teachers). To apply Oncology Yoga in a class or therapeutic setting, more training is required. Please see the 75 Hour Certificate Program.

Graduates will receive a certificate of completion but this non-yoga program will not provide credentials to teach. And graduates will not be listed on the yoga4cancer Directory that is used by caner survivors or healthcare organizations worldwide to find trained Oncology Yoga professionals.

Tuition – $599-$699*
