Take a look at what our participants have to say…

I think some of my most favorite parts of this training has been the medical aspects. And especially being a survivor. I feel like I wish I could have had this knowledge before so that when I was going through my own treatment, I could have benefited from that.

Be Well Teacher Graduate & Cancer Survivor

Everything that they taught us and everything that they shared with us… made so much sense to me. And how we, as teachers, need to be incorporating this into every single class regardless of what people are going through.

Be Well Teacher Graduate

Even my oncologist is telling me that exercise is the best thing – to keep moving. Particularly walking and Yoga are things that come up as being beneficial to your mental well-being, physical well-being…. And maybe really overcoming cancer. 

Anne – Be Well Cancer Recovery Student

When I come here, I’m also learning self-love. Before the class, they always give us a little quote. A friendly reminder…. Self-love is a journey, not a destination.

Serenity – Be Well Cancer Recovery Student

I know that my cancer had been developing over a period of time and I am sure it was stress-related. So when someone comes to your class, chances are they have been dealing with stress for a long time.

June – Be Well Cancer Recovery Student

I work my appointments around Yoga just because I know that it made me feel so good and to feel good when I am there. The motion, the movement, the stretches and I think it really helped bring back the positivity.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to complete the Be Well Yoga for Cancer Recovery Online Training Program?

It can take anywhere between 2-6 months to complete, but truly the Program was designed to be self-paced — no pressure, no deadlines. Let it fit into your schedule and your lifestyle. Be quick or take your time, as needed.

During the course, if you find that you need extra motivation and accountability to “get ‘er done!”, then you might benefit from our one-on-one Coaching Program.

Do I have to be a Yoga Teacher to take your courses and/or workshops?

No, it is not mandatory to be a Yoga teacher, but it is recommended. Our courses cover advanced concepts and practices that often assume you have a basic knowledge of Yoga. However, we have many mind-body and healthcare professionals who study with us to gain a deeper knowledge of teaching to these special demographics in order to serve their physical needs more compassionately and knowledgeably.

What type of accreditation is available for the Be Well Yoga for Cancer Teacher Training Program?

We offer a separate Credential Module for anyone who wants accreditation for the Be Well Yoga for Cancer Recovery Training Program. This module requires the submission of a 30-minute Be Well Yoga teachback class along with a multiple choice final exam. The purpose of the teachback is to determine if you have incorporated most of the learning and teaching methodologies presented in the Program.

Upon successful completion of the Credential Module, you’ll receive a Report Card (filled with valuable feedback) along with one of these accreditations:

  • Yoga for Cancer Recovery Certificate of Competency – for non-Yoga teachers
