The Cancer Exercise Specialist Advanced Qualification Home Study/Workshop was developed for health and fitness professionals seeking to attain a higher level of mastery and work with cancer patients in post-operative exercise and quality-of-life programs. Candidates will gain a complete understanding of the entire cancer process, from diagnosis and treatment to [breast cancer] reconstruction.

If you are unable to attend the live workshop, the home study is an alternative option. This is an invaluable opportunity for those of you who are not located within a reasonable distance of a scheduled workshop and are interested in starting to work with cancer patients in the very near future and/or need CEU's in a hurry.

The Cancer Exercise Training Institute provides the only Yoga-Based Rehabilitative Exercise Protocol, including 25 types of cancer with a strong focus on breast cancer and reconstruction.

CETI’s protocol consists of gentle yoga poses, along with breathing techniques, meditation and restorative yoga poses designed specifically for patients coping with cancer, with an emphasis on regaining strength and flexibility, correcting postural deviations, improving lymph flow, preventing osteoporosis (an issue following chemotherapy and/or hormone ablation), and managing side effects caused by surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and other cancer treatments.

In addition to the focus on physical recovery, emphasis is placed on spiritual and emotional recovery as well. The Cancer Exercise Specialist 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 patient’s sense of well-being, joy and self-confidence.
