Accessible Yoga Conference with Jivana Heyman, E-RYT 500

Friday, May 19 – Sunday, May 21, 2017
Events take place at Integral Yoga Institute and other nearby venues. Schedule is available upon registration.
Join the world’s leading adaptive Yoga teachers for a weekend of education, community-building, and inspiration.
We’ll explore ways to make Yoga available to everyone regardless of ability. All Yoga students and teachers are welcome. The mission of the Accessible Yoga Conference is to provide a forum where the Yoga community can come together to connect, share, and support those who wish to expand access to the Yoga teachings for people with disabilities, chronic illness, seniors, and people who may not feel comfortable in a regular yoga class.
Join us for a weekend program which includes asana classes, workshops, and panel discussions with senior Yoga teachers on a variety of topics related to increasing access to Yoga. Topics range from adapting poses to community building. You’ll also get a preview of the Teacher Training programs offered by conference faculty.
