OM Yoga Teacher Training
for Women Cancer Survivors
Aug 19-23, 2010
Essence of Yoga Studio, Holbrook, NY
Taught by Tari Prinster
Yoga for cancer survivors is not just another gentle yoga class.
This unique 45 hour training program offers certified yoga teachers the opportunity to learn about the limitations imposed by breast
cancer surgeries, the many lifelong side-effects, the vulnerabilities of cancer
treatments and reconstruction. You will learn which asanas help or harm, how to
modify poses using props and how to integrate specific healing movements for
common issues such as lymphedema, fatigue and osteoporosis.
You will gain the skills and confidence to teach a yoga class that cultivates hope, removes stigma and provides healing and benefit for these warrior women.
The 45 hour training includes:
• Lecture and discussions
• Analysis of appropriate and non-appropriate poses with attention to the special benefits for cancer survivors
• Guidelines to make simple vinyasa sequences
• Practice teaching
• Discussion about how to get referrals and start a survivor yoga program.
How to Begin
You are eligible to apply if you are a yoga teacher certified at the 200 hour level, inspired to extend your teaching into a
growing area of need, and interested in offering intelligent, beneficial group
or private yoga classes for women cancer survivors.
