As more and more people search for healing systems to integrate with modern medicine, the popularity of yoga continues to grow exponentially. Yoga therapy expands the reach of yoga beyond the studio as a holistic approach to wellness that promotes health and healing of body, mind and spirit. In yoga therapy, the appropriate application of various tools in a therapeutic context bring about profound shifts that allow the mind to quiet, the emotions to balance and the body to activate its own self-healing.
Yoga therapy is part of a living tradition which continues to evolve and adapt to the cultural contexts in which it is practiced. Its efficacy is supported by a growing body of scientific evidence which further contributes to its acceptance as a valuable therapeutic and healing system. As the popularity of yoga therapy continues to grow, the need for well-trained and qualified practitioners will also continue to grow. The Yoga Therapy Summit provides an opportunity for yoga students, yoga teachers and yoga therapists to expand knowledge, exchange ideas and create community in the emerging field of yoga therapy.
