Love Serve Meditate Realize

Tuesday, Aug 16, 2011 Yoga Therapy Grant

I just received the following exciting news from the International Association of Yoga Therapists  (IAYT) and wanted to share it with you. It’s wonderful that Yoga and Yoga Therapy are being recognized for their healing potential, and this grant will help to expand our knowledge and application of these practices.

All Love,


We are pleased to announce that IAYT has received a $30,000 scientific conference grant from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine in support of the upcoming Symposium on Yoga Research (SYR 2011).

This award closely follows the recent addition of the International Journal of Yoga Therapy to the PubMed/Medline database of the biomedical literature, as well as the release of the draft educational standards for the training of Yoga therapists.

We are excited for the recognition and expansion that the field of Yoga therapy is experiencing through our membership, conferences and publications, as well as the rapid growth in the number of training programs. This is truly a pivotal moment in the history of healthcare, as Yoga therapy is becoming more formally recognized in the West, thanks to the pioneering work of so many of our long-term members, partners and researchers.
