Press reviews for: Adapting Yoga for People Living with Cancer

Theo Wildcroft, PhD, yoga teacher, trainer, writer and scholar

As the Introduction says, this is not a 'how to' book, but I am very glad of this. Instead, this is a well-organised arrangement of gentle reflections and thoughtful advice, seasoned with solid information and firm ethical principles, to help any yoga teacher develop their own best practices for working with people living with cancer.

Charlotte Watts, Yoga Teacher, Nutritional Therapist, author of Yoga Therapy for Digestive Health and The De-Stress Effect

A heartfelt, honest and deeply useful body of work. I do not say useful there in the sense of solving or fixing an issue - such an ingrained reaction in our goal-oriented society - rather, I mean useful in the sense of meeting a true need for so many.
