Our comprehensive programming covers 25 types of cancer, as well as pediatrics, with special emphasis on breast cancer and breast reconstruction. The CES Yoga program will help to improve the patient’s ability to cope with the mental and physical stress following cancer diagnosis and treatment. Increased mental focus helps promote the re-discovery of the patients’ sense of well-being, joy, and self-confidence.

We provide three methods of certification: homestudy, live/interactive webinar workshops, and live in-person workshops. The Cancer Exercise Training Institute has trained more health and fitness professionals worldwide to become Cancer Exercise Specialists than any other organization.

 


How does the Cancer Exercise Specialist® Advanced Qualification YOGA Workshop differ from other available yoga cancer exercise training programs?

  • CETI’s yoga protocol consists of yoga poses, breathing techniques, and range of motion exercises designed specifically for patients coping with cancer; with an emphasis on regaining strength and flexibility, correcting postural deviations, improving lymph flow, and preventing and/or managing the debilitating side-effects of cancer surgery and treatment.
  • We are the ONLY organization that emphasizes INDIVIDUALIZED programming. No two cancer patients are the same and their exercise program should be as individual as they are.
  • Invaluable training and experience in assessment protocol, including goniometry to measure joint ROM, postural assessments and girth measurements to monitor for lymphedema.
  • Ability to ask questions and have them answered in person, through email, phone, and blog.
  • Workshop attendees receive 2-days of specialized training along with the Four-module Cancer Exercise Specialist® Handbook.
  • Supplemental Yoga workbook is available at an additional cost. In this book you will find samples of yoga poses along with modifications for various cancer surgeries and treatments as well as poses that will help to promote lymph drainage and help to prevent lymphedema.
  • Open-book online examination to be taken at home following the workshop. We believe that the open-book nature of this examination simulates real life situations more closely than anxiety ridden, proctored, examination hall examinations.
  • We offer professional development and continuing education as well as a video library for CETI Cancer Exercise Specialists exclusively.
  • Receive a complimentary 2-year listing on our International Cancer Exercise Specialist® Directory – bringing clients to you.

The Cancer Exercise Training Institute has trained more health and fitness professionals worldwide to become Cancer Exercise Specialists than any other organization. Andrea Leonard, 33-year cancer survivor, author of “Essential Exercises for Breast Cancer Survivors,” NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist and Performance Enhancement Specialist, and President/Founder of the Cancer Exercise Training Institute began her extensive research in 1995; long before anyone had ever hear of “cancer exercise.” She spent three years working on Essential Exercises with the chiefs of breast surgery at Georgetown, George Washington, and Johns’ Hopkins University Hospital Medical Centers. Realizing there was a need to assist patients with many types of cancer, Andrea expanded her research and writing to cover a broader spectrum. She is truly a pioneer in the field of cancer and exercise and has paved the way for other organizations to follow.
