Barbara Gallani is a yoga teacher specialised in working with cancer survivors with any type of cancer and at any stage of treatment and recovery.
Barbara trained with Laura Kupperman at YogaCampus in London and believes that yoga is a precious tool to support cancer patients, and their carers, through the physical and emotional challenges of cancer treatment and recovery. After approaching yoga in 1995 and obtaining a British School of Yoga Diploma in 2005, Barbara specialised in teaching people with limited mobility and disabilities, and has been working with physiotherapists and carers to provide support to chair and bed bound clients. Barbara enriched and deepened her practice at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in Kerala, India, and more recently has approached a variety of styles including Jivamukti, Anusara and restorative yoga.
Throughout her practice, Barbara has been supported and encouraged by exceptional teachers and mentors, including Frances Heelan in London and Vito Accettura in Milan.
Barbara runs private and group classes in North London, including classes for visually impaired clients, and a Yoga for Those Affected by Cancer class at the Life Centre, Islington.
Here are just a couple of testimonials given by some of Barbara's students:
“Barbara creates a yoga class that is thoughtful, focused, inspiring and gently challenging” (Kate)
“As a partner of someone with a cancer diagnosis, it is so valuable to be welcomed to a class and have my own needs addressed as well as my partner's” (Jessica)
“I look forward to our sessions knowing that whatever I am dealing with, I will be supported and strengthened by the session” (Kate)
