 This workshop will focus on the “Stanford Supportive Care Program” approach to yoga. And in general how to teach yoga to cancer patients. 

“I go to yoga because it’s the only time, I feel that I can actually breathe”.  - Lilly, 65, cancer patient

In a class with no more than 10 students; one would just have had stomach surgery, another five back surgeries in recent years and a third student is nauseous from chemo therapy. Teaching yoga to cancer patients with such fragility might be the most challenging yoga job you will ever encounter. However, it might also be the most rewarding because of the effect yoga can have on the patients and their caretakers.

In this workshop Sine Vind will share her experience of teaching yoga to cancer patients for Stanford Health Care.  The workshop will be a combination of yoga practice as it could be taught in a Cancer Care Class and discussion about the difference between teaching yoga in a yoga studio and teaching yoga baiscs to cancer patients and surviviors. 

About the Cancer Supportive Care Program:
At the Cancer Supportive Care program it is important to make patients feel safe, cared for and confident that the teacher understands and meets the need of the individual. The program follows the Stanford Health Care standard of providing state-of-the-art medical care along with the highest quality of patient care - including healing the mind, body and spirit.
On their webiste they point out that: "You don't have to go through cancer alone."
