  *  Training begins with an in-depth look at the physiology of breast cancer, including formation, metastasis, and clinical staging of cancerous tumors. We then review typical treatment options and their accompanying side-effects; focusing primarily on chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, and common reconstructive procedures. The remainder of our training focuses on using this background information to tailor your teaching to the individual and unique needs of a breast cancer survivor.

  * Participants learn the basics of sequencing and create classes that appropriately balance pranayama, meditation, and physical asana in a way that facilitates the healing process and meets the unique needs of their students. We explore a variety of breathing flows that help calm the nervous system, maintain lung volume, minimize anxiety and which can be used in conjunction with meditation and yoga nidra to provide deep relaxation and mental clarity.

  * Participants also learn to be comfortable and creative while using an assortment of props including chairs, blocks, bolsters, straps and blankets. We emphasize hands-on experience to develop a supportive and comfortable foundation for a mindful restorative yoga practice. Our goal is to ensure instructors are comfortable leading, adjusting, and assisting a practice that accommodates any degree of movement, from a vigorous vinyasa flow to a relaxing yoga nidra.

 * At the end of the training, participants have the option to become a bodhi & mind yoga instructor. bodhi & mind yoga instructors are paired with a breast cancer survivor for eight-week sessions of weekly one-on-one yoga and meditation practice. Instructors are compensated for each session and become part of a larger support community. Instructors have access to social work support, community building, and bodhi & mind yoga events.

Bio: DJ Arnold
Yoga Instructor & Executive Director

DJ is a California native who moved to Boston to attend Law School. DJ and Kristin met in 2010, shortly after she graduated from a Masters program in Critical Children’s Literature. Kristin was diagnosed with breast cancer in March, 2012 and founded bodhi & mind yoga in January, 2013.
Although he saw the benefits of Kristin’s practice during her treatment and recovery, DJ did not step on the mat until after her death. Feeling a deeper connection to Kristin and her dream of providing assistance to other women with breast cancer, DJ began a 200 hr Fluid Yoga teacher training with Kevan Gale at Stil Studio. DJ graduated from the 200 hr program and began working as bodhi & mind yoga’s first full-time executive director in August 2014.
