Susan...deep breathing....oncology and questions...I do yoga in the room because it helps me 'wait'...the doctor usually comes in and says, "Oh, you're doing yoga". He works hard at work, but takes a vacation every five or six weeks, which I think is healthy. However, at work, he is mostly 'business'. Timing....all in Spirit's time...we keep showing up!

When I looked at the site, I noticed that a fair part of the training is now on-line. However, I think there is a requirement to do a face2face training at an intensive. Meeting Frank and Sepril is part of the magic!
They not only do advanced training, but they also do a 200 hour level.
Please do contact Frank, on Yoga Bear, or at the SAYCO site. I will help you in any way I can; maybe I can mentor you when you get to that point:) Their training, combined with "A Gentle Way" in La Mesa California were to two main trainings that gave me the skill to adapt yoga 'on the spot'! I have also completed "Yoga for Cancer Survivor" training with Ingrid Yang in San Diego. This is a vinyasa adaptation which is great for younger breast cancer survivors, and older 'fit' yogis, but not my personal emphasis. The variety is necessary to meet all the various needs of survivors. But my age, 54, and my experience with cancer (long-term balance and energy issues, some neuropathy) makes gentle and restorative yoga 'my thing'. Keep open, as you are doing, and you will find the right mix! The Himalayan Institute training in PA has an appeal to me, as well! I will continue to learn and grow, hopefully, as long as I am on this planet!
If there is anything I can do to support you as you go through seeking and training, and recovery. SAYCO is amazing training and a wonderful 'family' feeling, like YB. Glad you enjoyed the links! Blessings. Namaste', Jean
Welcome to YB! Your words resonate with me....so many paths...and cancer is a light to different views...along the way....glad you have been able to avoid chemo! Maybe you will become a yoga teacher and start some YB classes in KY? Blessings, Jean
