Yoga For Cancer Patients,Survivors & Thrivers!

Not sure if this is really the right place to ask but here goes …

Do we have any classes specifically for Cancer Survivors ?

Do you think that we need special training in order to teach Cancer Patients/Surviors ?

I am a Yoga Teacher … teaching now for 15 years … was diagnosed with cancer & have had surgery but need to heal through connection, sharing & teaching.

Looking for help on Glo.

Thank you .

Namaste,

Gurjinder x

Thank you Bia. I have looked into Yoga4Cancer too.

Have tried a few of their classes but thought it would be nice to use Glo too as I am a member here & feel more at “home” here xxx

Continuing to practice & allowing it to evolve …be what it needs to be for the body I have now … x

This is a great class. I am a cancer survivor and this case has helped greatly with the side effects of treatment.

HI Campstreet,
I hope you and your family are well and safe. I noticed your comment and wondered if I could ask your for a short comment on how yoga has helped you with surviving cancer. I am writing a book about the scientific benefits of yoga and am looking for short testimonials from yoga practitioners on how yoga has helped them. The testimonials usually carry the first name and country (e.g. Mary, Australia) or they can be anonymous. I am really grateful for your help. Take care, Mary
