The Therapy Committee have arranged for a series of Therapy Workshops to be held on the subject of helping students diagnosed with breast cancer. It is a pilot scheme and we hope it will be so successful; it will become an annual event covering areas of therapy. The workshops will be open to all those listed on the Therapy register. Also to teachers as listed –

Senior teachers (not therapy listed).
Junior 3 teachers with an interest in teaching those with cancer who have attended classes at RIMYI.
Helpers in regular therapy classes.
Teachers who teach at The Haven, Maggie’s or other Breast Care Centres.
Breast care nursing staff.

The workshops will focus on the primary stage of practice (students would expect to practice this for at least a year or longer). It is low risk; poses are supported and modified from classical asana and according to the ability of the student. This approach is applicable to most cancers. We will also have a section dealing with the side-effects of treatment for cancer.
