SYTAR 2015 was wonderful!
"I have to say that was the best Yoga therapy conference I have ever attended. And that is saying a lot!!!" ~ Larry Payne, co-founder of IAYT
And other attendees agreed!
"Have never experienced any other professional conference so relevant and power packed!"
About the presentations/presenters:
"All three keynote presentations were excellent - each different from the others ~ what dynamic individuals!"
"After some of the [other organization] conferences I have attended; I appreciated the humility!"
What attendees really liked:
"The variety of classes and presenters. The venue was terrific and the staff was very helpful and courteous."
"All new relationships and great networking."
"I loved just being there with all these amazing people, learning, sharing and feeling that my profession is coming into its own on a grand scale with all the research that was presented."
"This was my first time attending SYTAR, and I will definitely be back...The atmosphere was just right -- not too "stuffy" or "heady," but of high quality and integrity."
"Community!" "research" "extremely professional" "networking" "great sangha"
"Nice event. Good content. Really nice venue." "Still speechless. Very satisfied and inspired."
About the organization of the event:
"This was one of the most well organized conferences I've ever participated in. I especially applaud and acknowledge Debra's skillful and graceful leadership in every area."
"We felt welcomed--this is such an important thing for those who are new and you did a wonderful job of that."
For future consideration:
"Would love a practice room for use throughout!"
"I would like to see morning (or other times) for meditation practice--perhaps a track alongside asana."
