In this insightful podcast episode Jude talks to us about how yoga can be adapted for those living with cancer, yoga therapy and her new book Adapting Yoga for People Living with Cancer.

In her book, Jude explains how to adapt physical poses and breathing exercises for people with cancer. Offering guidance on meditation and relaxation techniques as well as providing an essential overview of living with cancer, treatments and side effects, the book emphasises the importance of physical space and demonstrates the personal and professional skills required to hold a place of safety for those who experience life-threatening illnesses. It covers key topics such as scope of practice, boundaries and appropriate language and is an essential guide for yoga teachers looking to hold cancer-inclusive classes.

Podcast reviews:

“Always enlightening and interesting! Good for the soul – friendly, inclusive, informative and caring, like a warm hug from a good friend. What more could you want from a podcast?”

“Fantastic podcast. Wonderful interesting subjects and very enjoyable to listen to.”

“Incredible!!! Spirituality plus real life, sprinkled with a huge dose of love. This podcast will speak to your soul. Raw, authentic and honest. Despite how it’s commercially depicted, yoga isn’t some contortionist act or sweating in a studio. Nor is it a group hippies chanting. Yoga is life. This podcast is an absolute blessing!!”
