2019, SYTAR conference was inspiring, validating, and rejuvenating. I was inspired to be part of this international community of yoga professionals bridging the gap between Western medicine & Yoga. There were 500 of us. Many who attended had completed research projects with hospitals, universities, governmental agencies, non-profits, and large corporations. The results easily confirm, without a shadow of doubt, what all of us who’ve practiced already know, and that is that Yoga works. It works as a stress management tool, a time management tool, and a vault of knowledge stored in our higher chakras that we can access at will……. as long as we practice. …every chance we can.
On the first day I learned about yoga therapy and cancer care. There are many who are working within this community and doing some amazing work with evidence-based results. On the second day I attended a 2-part session on yoga therapy and cardiac care. Nischala Joy Devi was a familiar face at Kripalu over the years of my training, yet I was unable to attend any of her classes. But here in Newport Beach, CA I was grateful to spend time with her.
On the third day I continued to learn more of ayurveda, which is providing me with good info on aging & longevity. The last session I attended, appropriately titled, The Last Breath offered up yoga therapy for dying. It was the second best presentation of the weekend and was exactly what I needed.
The event was well worth my time & effort and I’m grateful to my daughter for providing me with daily transportation to and from the event. It was a wonderful experience overall. I look forward to sharing all I’ve learned in the months to come. Feel free to contact me if you’d like some information on how Personal Yoga Therapy can help you.
