This practical guidebook explains how to adapt physical poses and breathing exercises for people with cancer.

Offering guidance on meditation and relaxation techniques as well as providing an essential overview of living with cancer, treatments and side effects, the book emphasises the importance of physical space and demonstrates the personal and professional skills required to hold a place of safety for those who experience life-threatening illnesses.

Covering key topics such as scope of practice, boundaries and appropriate language, Adapting Yoga for People Living with Cancer is an essential guide for yoga teachers looking to hold cancer-inclusive classes.


As the Introduction says, this is not a 'how to' book, but I am very glad of this. Instead, this is a well-organised arrangement of gentle reflections and thoughtful advice, seasoned with solid information and firm ethical principles, to help any yoga teacher develop their own best practices for working with people living with cancer.
Theo Wildcroft, PhD, yoga teacher, trainer, writer and scholar
A heartfelt, honest and deeply useful body of work. I do not say useful there in the sense of solving or fixing an issue - such an ingrained reaction in our goal-oriented society - rather, I mean useful in the sense of meeting a true need for so many.
Charlotte Watts, Yoga Teacher, Nutritional Therapist, author of Yoga Therapy for Digestive Health and The De-Stress Effect
