  • Premiered in 2003, this ground-breaking program is the first to provide yoga instructors with the necessary skills to safely adapt Hatha yoga for breast cancer survivors. This population has special exercise needs and precautions according to the type of treatment received–-from lumpectomy, mastectomy and lymph node dissection to radiation, chemotherapy, and breast reconstruction.

    Part medical discourse, part spiritual inquiry, this training examines the complex array of physical, mental, and emotional challenges that survivors face. And explores how the science, philosophy, and psychology of yoga can aid recovery on all levels.
