On our own we can do so little, but together we can do so much
ABOUT THE GLOBAL YOGA THERAPY DAY
The Global Yoga Therapy Day is a collaborative & collective global, marketing & educational effort for the field of yoga therapy.
We have a two-fold mission:
- Educating the community about yoga therapy, and
- Providing direct opportunities for yoga therapists to meet potential new clients & employers through networking and the sharing of knowledge
The idea for the inaugural GYTD (created and hosted by Ann Marie Johnston, Director of Yoga for Better Health) was that of creating a global movement where yoga therapists around the world worked together to lift awareness and educate about the difference of Yoga Therapy.
Ann Marie and a team of volunteers and contributors from around the world came together to host an eight week educational effort culminating on GYTD, August 14, 2019. Aug 14 saw more than 400 yoga therapists across 5 continents in 36 countries participate in their own community outreach (hosting events on & offline), sharing 'The Difference of Yoga Therapy' (Learn more about GYTD 2019)
Moving online due to COVID, the 2020 GYTD saw 1000+ yoga therapists participate in the community outreach and more than 2500 individuals participate in our 24 hour online summit; 'Yoga Therapy: Beyond the Studio'.
Merging our community outreach and professional development into the one event, 2021 sees the GYTD expand into a 3 day conference. Utilizing industry best event technology, the GYTD will host an online conference showcasing global keynote presenters and C-IAYT yoga therapists sharing both experiential and educational community sessions.
With the theme, 'Therapy for the ages', the 2021 Conference outreach will be focused on educating healthcare, yoga professionals and the community about the holistic practice of yoga therapy. Full details and how to get involved found here.
We encourage you to be part of our efforts in 2021. Please mark your calendars to participate Aug 13-15. Contact us if you're interested in sponsorship
