Community Session

The 2021 GYTD Conference uniquely highlights community sessions, where conference participants can join in live experiential and educational yoga therapy sessions with yoga therapists across the world.

Community sessions can target healthcare professionals, other yoga therapists, yoga teachers or the general public.

GYTD will market the conference to individuals who are already interested in yoga and how it can support better health & wellbeing.

Showcase your expertise and get your knowledge in front of a global audience of attendees with the aims of your attracting new clients interested in how yoga therapy can support their personal health and wellbeing.
