Call for Proposals
Yoga therapy ideas worth sharing!
New for SYTAR 2016
We’ve done away with the passive slide presentations of past Common Interest Community sessions. Instead, this year CIC presentations will be 10-minute oral presentations (no slides/power points) to a circle of community participants. Following the presentation, the group then discusses your idea for 5 minutes, with the intention of "sharing” as a community their resources rather than "declaring” i.e., I’ll send you that study”, "We have a brochure that works”, etc. vs. someone dominating the circle by "teaching” that circle what they know (you know who we mean!). The presenter then shifts to another circle while the group in the circle awaits a new presenter. Your presentation will be made seven times in all. This allows for more active, personal interaction and contribution than a large one-time audience share.
Your purpose as a presenter is to share your work/practice/idea that works and is relevant to the CIC’s focus. In return, you meet others that share your interest and receive constructive comments/resources back from your peers. All attendees should leave the CIC session with many ideas that may help them in their own work or stimulate new programming possibilities. All attendees should also gain many new professional colleagues to celebrate with for the remainder of the symposium, and for future sharing and collaboration.
We are seeking well-written and intriguing summaries of a successful yoga therapy idea or resource that works and is worth sharing with others. All proposals will be evaluated by the session chairs for community interest. Seven individuals will be chosen in each category to present their work - with two back-up alternate presenters. All chosen summaries will be published in the conference program guide and later, published on the IAYT journal hosting site as a supplement to the International Journal of Yoga Therapy. Proposals are not edited and not subject to change after submission, so be sure your proposal is final.
