Teacher Training 2014
Yoga for Breast Cancer Recovery & Beyond©
April 26-27, 2014/ExclusiveYoga Studio/Waltham, MA
"We researched all the breast cancer trainings out there and are thrilled that we chose Camille's. Her yoga-based rehab methods really work to reduce lymphedema, increase range-of-motion, soothe neuropathies, and aid osteoporosis. Plus, Camille is an authentic yogini: She teaches ALL facets of yoga, from koshas and pranavayus to mudras and exceptionally beautiful guided relaxations. The physicians at Christus Spohn Cancer Center sponsored the training and now are so grateful to have a yoga program of its caliber for their patients."
--Rebecca Solis, Pink Ribbon Yoga Founder, Christus Spohn Cancer Center, TX
"Camille's methods targeted all the areas of scar tissue in my chest that NO OTHER physical therapist, yoga teacher, Pilates trainer, or exercise video have ever been able to do. She is the leading breast cancer recovery instructor in the US and abroad."

About the Training
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.
Participants will receive a helpful packet of cancer resource materials, as well as the comprehensive Yoga for Breast Cancer Recovery & Beyond© manual. It offers invaluable, practical information for instructors, including detailed outlines of therapeutic yoga sequences for the newly diagnosed, rehabilitative sequences for post-surgery recovery, and non-injurious vinyasas for those who are years beyond treatment but at a lifelong risk for lymphedema or osteoporosis.
Diverse trademarked yoga flows, including Camille's signature Recovery Arm Vinyasas™, offer far more effective teaching options than the basic yoga of other cancer trainings. Camille leads all therapeutic movement and recovery yoga classes. Participants do not forfeit workshop time breaking into simulated practice groups. The real-life teaching experience in the Practicum provides a much stronger foundation for building confidence, knowledge, and skills.

"I was so impressed with this masterful, moving workshop. I urge all patients to incorporate Camille's unique yoga/stretch sequences into their daily routines--especially to help prevent or diminish lymphedema. I learned some wonderful ROM moves which I now guide my patients through before radiation. They ease chest pain and give me an effective way to help patients in their journey through recovery. "
