From an email I received from Mark Sierra:
I hope this email finds you all well. I realize as I go through this list of contacts, I haven’t spoken to some of you in a while so hope you are in great health and happiness!
I would like to take this opportunity to direct your attention to an upcoming event that I truly believe will be quite special. It is the first ever Yoga Therapy Conference in beautiful Tiburon (Marin) and will be held May 12-14. See below link for much more detail.
Everyone I am emailing is a friend of the amazing Bay Area yoga community. We are being blessed with the first ever conference in the United States that is devoted specifically to Yoga Therapy! Through our own personal yoga practices, we already know the amazing benefits of yoga as it enhances our overall well being. This conference is going to gather an amazing collection of internationally reknowned experts who will really focus in on the specific curative and healing powers of yoga in a wide range of areas such as cancer, depression, ayurveda, quantum meditation, grief, sound & healing, insomnia, anxiety, pregnancy, overall strength, back pain – and so much more!
There is definitely a lot of amazing information here for teachers, experienced students, new students or anybody who is just interested in the therapeutic benefits of yoga no matter who they are.
There is also a fantastic kirtan and dance performance Saturday night – the Mantra Lounge – with Suzanne Sterling, Alex Theory and my friend DJ Dragonfly (go Martin!!)
So please check out the below link for more information and I really encourage you to sign up. There are one-day and full conference passes to meet your schedule. Having been to quite a few yoga workshops, I also think you will see this is priced very well.
I also encourage you to forward this to as many people as you know that might be interested.
Finally, for studio owners, please let me know if you are OK with me dropping off some fliers.
For many reasons, I really think the future of yoga will be focusing more and more in the therapeutic benefits (vs. more focus on asana), and you can be there at the forefront of that movement.
Thanks so much and I hope to see you there as this truly will be a historic event.
