Conference on Yoga and Mind-Body Medicine - London, April 4th-6th

Pre-conference Events April 3rd

Bringing Yoga into Healthcare - 10:00am-12:00pm
Research is continuing to confirm that yoga therapy is complementary and sometimes even stand- alone treatment for many physical and mental health conditions. If we really hope to bring the benefits of yoga to those who need them most we must be able to communicate effectively with medical professionals. This requires a significant understanding of yoga therapy research and how to clear and defined ways to approach healthcare institutions.

On April 3rd 2014 you are invited to a pre-conference meeting of yoga therapists who wish to pioneer this effort in Europe. This meeting is an opportunity:
• Network with other therapists who share your vision
• Learn about the current state of research in yoga therapy from one of the world’s leading yoga researchers
• Learn strategies to that will help you approach healthcare settings
• Understand vital considerations in the development of clinical yoga therapy programs
• Collaborate on a united grass roots movement to integrate yoga therapy into healthcare
