On our own we can do so little, but together we can do so much
Helen Keller
The Global Yoga Therapy Day is a collaborative, collective, global educational effort for the field of yoga therapy.

The idea for the inaugural GYTD (created and hosted by Ann Marie Johnston, Director Yoga for Better Health) was to start a global movement where yoga therapists around the world worked together to lift awareness of and educate about the difference of yoga therapy.

A team of volunteers and contributors from around the world came together to host an eight-week educational effort culminating in the inagural GYTD, August 14, 2019. More than 400 yoga therapists across 5 continents in 36 countries participated with 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 an online community outreach, and a further 2500 individuals participated in the GYTD 24 hour online summit; 'Yoga Therapy: Beyond the Studio'.

2021 merged the community outreach and professional development one event, an expanded 3-day conference featuring 100+ 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 focused on the integration of yoga into healthcare; reaching an audience from 41 countries; raising over $15,000 for our 2021 charitable partner, Give Back Yoga Foundation.
