"I’m just exiting cancer treatment and this workshop has helped me reclaim my identity as a yoga teacher. Jenny has a warmly empathetic teaching style ...... I’ve loved knowing that my practice is always there for me during my yoga journey, but now I feel confident taking my experience to students."

Cancer Induced Menopause Workshop:
This specialist workshop is for yoga teachers who are working with women going through cancer treatment that has either permanently or temporarily put them into premature menopause. This is a more common occurrence than many realise and is not just restricted to gynaecological cancers. Many women find they do not receive support for their menopause when it is connected to a cancer diagnosis.
This workshop will give you an understanding of how and when medically induced menopause can happen in cancer treatment, the potential for temporary or permanent menopause and the effect of cancer treatment on fertility. We will then look at the most common menopausal symptoms that occur when connected to cancer, the psycho-emotional impact of premature menopause and yoga practises that can help support women going through this process. BY the end of this workshop you will have:
- A working knowledge of how cancer treatment can induce menopause and affect fertility
- Understand how to support women through asana, pranayama and relaxation techniques
- Know clear signposts when it is not appropriate to teach
- Have resources to take away with you to consolidate your learning and further support your students.
" t's a sad reality that most of us will encounter students or friends with this disease and the treatment it requires. I feel equipped now to offer help and support to those people in my life. Jenni is a really knowledgeable teacher and the patients that she looks after are lucky to have her! The course content was just the right amount of theory and practical with plenty of opportunity to interact and make notes. The way the course was delivered really made it feel like I was in the room as opposed to sitting at home on zoom. Thank you and I look forward to doing some more training with you in future."

About the facilitator: Jenni Stone BWY Dip. MAR.
I have been running Yoga for Cancer training for Yoga Teachers Forum including a 7 week intensive training for yoga teachers, a yoga for cancer essentials workshop & breast cancer specialist training. I have an oncology diploma with Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine. In the years since I have continued to gain additional training including an oncology diploma with the Middlesex School of Complementary Medicine. I spent 2 years working in the North London Hospice and then several years at Cancerkin offering reflexology for cancer patients. I have been teaching yoga for cancer at Maggie's Royal Free for the last 8 years and have a private practise where I offer both reflexology and one to one yoga with people with cancer.
I started my yoga journey way back in the 90’s after a trip to India. Upon my return I sought out a local yoga class in London and ever since then, yoga has been the constant thread that runs through my life. Yoga is something that I return to to maintain my physical, mental and emotional health. It has helped me through all life’s challenges, birth, death, love and loss. Yoga is such a powerful tool. I have subsequently trained with many other teachers including Peter Blackaby, John Stirk and Uma-Dinsmore Tuli all of whom have informed the way I teach yoga to those with cancer.
My other big passion is women’s health and empowerment and I bring this knowledge to my work with women who have cancer.
