Our Upcoming Accessible Yoga Conference: St. Louis, Missouri, May 31-June 2, 2019

We're super excited about our upcoming Accessible Yoga Conference in St. Louis: Reimagining Yoga.

In this conference, we will be exploring topics that allow us to search for the deeper meaning of yoga, such as yoga and wellness, yoga and rehabilitation, yoga therapy for illness or injury, race and yoga, indigenous consciousness, yoga to support underserved communities and folks with marginalized identities, and living our values while still operating in systems of oppression. There will be 26 sessions on a wide range of topics, including yoga service, radical self-acceptance, race and yoga, creative prop setups, peace-filled parenting, and yoga for cancer, for amputees, and for queer and trans folks, bedside yoga (yoga for the terminally ill), and more. Presenters include: 

  • Jivana Heyman
  • Michelle C. Johnson
  • Jules Mitchell
