Description

THE YOGA THERAPY CONFERENCE ON MAY FRI 10 + SAT 11, 2019

All yoga teachers, yoga therapists and professionals in medicine, psychiatry, social welfare and education are invited to the 4rd edition of THE YOGA THERAPY CONFERENCE in Amsterdam to learn, share and to connect!

Expect a melting pot of of professionals and enthusiasts in yoga and healthcare from all over the globe, ready to explore the need and desire for human connection that is essential to our survival and our ability to thrive.



Yoga therapy has its own unique perspective on health and wellbeing that can be understood in modern language. At THE YOGA THERAPY CONFERENCE 2019, we will explore this perspective as we dive into the topic of 'The science of human connection' through different cultural and professional perspectives.

We will explore human connections in yoga therapy as an ancient wisdom tradition and newer theories like polyvagal theory to help us to put this wisdom in context to modern language and neurophysiological understanding for optimal health. We do this with the worlds' greatest leaders in the field of science, and yoga:


  • The creator of polyvagal theory, dr. Stephan Porges (USA), is joining us to discuss the new understandings of the nervous system and how this sheds light on the connection between physiological states, emotions, and behavior.

  • Marlysa Sulival (USA) will help us understand this in the context of yoga therapy.


An understanding of both the frameworks and yoga therapy's is needed. Also, how to translate this into modern neurophysiological language -- such as through polyvagal theory -- helps the practice be understood for integration into healthcare and research contexts.




  • Dr. Sue Carter (USA), who studies social bonding and her research focuses on neuropeptide and steroid hormones, including oxytocin, vasopressin, will explain some of the in-built neuro-biological mechanisms that foster human connection.

  • She and Lisa Kaley-Isley (UK) will link together our enhanced understanding of human neuro-physiology with how to skillfully foster appropriate levels of intimacy and connection in yoga therapeutic relationships so that they serve their purpose to safely and effectively nuture our ability to heal our conflicts and re-establish wholeness.


Also meet at the Conference:

  • dr Ganesh Mohan (SGP)

  • dr Sarah Durston (NL)

  • Anneke Sips (NL)

  • Teo Wildcroft (UK)

  • Leigh Blashki (AUS)

  • ...and many more. Find the whole program here.

THE YOGA THERAPY CONFERENCE is organized by Network Yoga Therapy.

We wish to organize this meet-up for people with similar interests, who share similar values, who think holistically. For professionals in medicine, psychiatry, social welfare and education. For yoga teachers and yoga therapists. For those who are open to see things from different perspectives, who wants to make a difference. Who know that change in systems is inevitable and who get excited about playing a role in that.

THE YOGA THERAPY CONFERENCE is a recognition. A celebration of the work we do. All in our own way, big or small, we are adding to a more conscious and healthy future for next generations to come. Hope to see you all on May 10 + 11, 2019,

Warmly,

Anneke Sips, organizer/ founder Network Yoga Therapy
