How is Yoga 4 Cancer and Oncology Yoga (y4c) different than other yoga styles?

The y4c methodology is not yoga for one-size-fits-all. The evidence informed method is an adaptable, active vinyasa style that encourages movement coordinated with breath, and accompanied with well-supported restorative poses to ensure a cancer survivor achieves the maximum benefits from yoga.

The y4c certificate program provides and is based on scientific facts and tools to address specific physical and emotional side-effects of cancer and cancer treatments.

Not all yoga is the same and for cancer survivors the needs are different.

True compassion flows from knowledge and facts. Without specific training, a teacher is not equipped to understand the unique physical and emotional needs and challenges of those touched by cancer. Over the past decade, the volume of research to support yoga as a safe and effective way to manage cancer side-effects has grown. Our evidence informed y4c certificate program provides the knowledge, facts, solutions and practicum to address the specific needs of the cancer community.

Cancer patients, cancer survivors, family, friends and caregivers all feel a sense of relief and gratitude when the treatment routine is behind them.

What happens after treatments?

What happens after treatment is just as important – equally as important- as the treatment to cure cancer. y4c focuses on long-term health issues as well as physical and emotional ways to aid in prevention of a recurrence.
