- Yoga And Recovery:Healing from Addiction and Eating Disorders
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Supporting Organization!
THIS EVENT WILL CONVENE THE WORLD’S LEADING THINKERS TO EXPLORE HOW YOGA CAN TRANSFORM THE TREATMENT OF ADDICTION AND EATING DISORDERS.
Today someone in the U.S. will die of an overdose every 19 minutes, and in the UK wait times for eating disorder treatment can exceed 1-2 years.
This three-day event centers around the idea that in a global economic climate in which many cannot afford or must wait months for treatment, thoughtfully-tailored yoga interventions can dramatically increase access to life-saving resources. When offered in tandem with standard medical and psychological care, yoga can relieve pressure on overstretched healthcare systems and fill gaps where conventional treatments fall short.
The symposium will offer those who work in the field the data, practices, and strategy to treat these issues and help people to change and heal their lives.
We hope you will accept our invitation to join forces with the Give Back Yoga Foundation, International Association of Yoga Therapy, Yoga for 12-Step Recovery, and Eat Breathe Thrive as a sponsor for this international virtual symposium on September 23 – 25, 2022.
