Yoga for Cancer

British Wheel of Yoga

British Wheel of Yoga

I have recently qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga to be able to teach Yoga for People with Cancer.  I am honoured to have passed this module that was taught by the amazing Julie Friedeberger (Author of A Visible Wound: Healing Journey through Breast Cancer and The Healing Power of Yoga).  Julie is an inspiring teacher and I feel I have learnt so much from her generous teachings.

The Yoga Therapy Foundation ( a local charity set up by yoga teacher Ann-Marie Mainprize to offer yoga to those in need of yoga therapy) and run through the Yoga Therapy Lounge in Hull will offer a class for cancer from the New Year. This class will run on a Tuesday morning from 10.45 – 12.15 and will be by self-referral for all those suffering from cancer.  This class is by donation and booking via info@theyogatherapylounge,co,uk is essential.  Because of it’s specialized nature this will be a small class, 10 participants maximum.  This class will start on Tue Jan 13th.

Each class will be very gentle and all physical yoga will be suitable for those attending, and adaptations are standard.  There will be a focus on breathing and healing meditations and a long relaxation every time in the form of yoga nidra, also known as yoga-sleep.
