Social workers, school teachers, health-care providers, counselors, yoga teachers, mindfulness teachers and all others interested in exploring the possibility of bringing yoga and mindfulness to underserved or vulnerable populations will find resources, tools and community at this gathering.

The 2015 Conference

The 2015 Yoga Service Conference was a great success! At the 2015 Yoga Service Conference, we explored issues of social justice, inclusion, safety and community building. We learned from experts about the impact of both trauma and yoga on the body and the brain. We heard about the most recent research in the field, and explore practices to cultivate our own compassion and capacity for meaningful relationship. We co-created the language of sharing these practices with social institutions, and had many opportunities for our own self-care, with daily yoga and meditation, guided by exceptional teachers.

Breakout workshops shared concrete tools that attendees could integrate immediately into their work, with the opportunity to choose from classes across three distinct tracks of study designed for: Yoga Teachers, Social Service Providers, Organizational leaders.

In the spirit of community building and learning from each other, facilitated discussions offered on working with specific populations, and Saturday evening a Yoga Service Exhibition brought together the founders and leaders of dozens of service organizations from across the country for the opportunity to share their groundbreaking work.

New this year was the opportunity to sign up for one on one mentoring sessions with YSC board members and advisors on issues such as organizational development, fundraising, outreach, training teachers, and other requested topics.
