For 200-hour yoga teachers, healthcare professionals, and others with relevant background and training.

Become a yoga teacher equipped to understand the specific needs and challenges of cancer patients and survivors. Tari Prinster’s yoga4cancer methodologyis a unique evidence-based approach to teaching yoga that addresses specific physical conditions, invites curiosity, and gives emotional support to those touched by cancer. Through lectures, demonstrations, discussions, reading and writing assignments, practice-teaching sessions, and individualized feedback, you learn

  • The science behind yoga
  • Fundamentals of cancer treatments and side effects
  • How and why yoga supports the immune system
  • Appropriate and inappropriate poses for cancer survivors
  • How and why yoga can reduce the risk of cancer
  • Tips on starting a cancer survivor program.

Tari has offered this training for more than 15 years and has trained more than 2,000 yoga teachers and healthcare practitioners globally. Complete this program with confidence and inspiration, and leave prepared to offer informed, safe, and supportive yoga classes in private or group settings.

Note In addition to the 35 contact hours completed during this program, 10 non-contact hours of reading and writing assignments are also required to meet the 45 hours needed for CE credits through Yoga Alliance. This includes pre- and post-training assignments that will be emailed to you before and after the program, respectively.

This program has informed how I select, sequence, and teach my cancer and non-cancer classes. As a survivor, it has opened my eyes and heart about my personal practice and lifestyle. Thank you, Tari.
