Discovery: A Yoga Conference Comes to You
Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

Two young girls meditating with hands joinedI drove through the beautiful back roads of Maryland and through the Poconos in Pennsylvania to the Himalayan Institute, a former monastery on 400 beautiful acres in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. The sold-out International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) symposium was held over a weekend last fall in October 2010.

From the symposium I realized there is a sea of change occurring in our society as we take control of our health and stress management. The medical field is beginning to integrate the best healing practices from many cultures. As I indulged in all the yoga books I could afford and inhaled the smells of paper and binding I met yoga teachers and researchers from all walks of life.

The conference blended intellectual discovery with a daily yoga practice, while leaving ample time for reflection in solitude or quiet groups. I shared a dormitory with ten other women where we did not speak after 10 p.m. to honor silence in the monastery tradition. I discovered nuggets of truth from lectures and conversations over fragrant vegetarian communal meals and fresh chai. The IAYT conference showed me that yoga offers the possibility of transforming each one of us.
