Call for Proposals
Yoga therapy ideas worth sharing!
Call for proposals is now open. Submission deadline is February 22.
For our fourth year, instead of PowerPoint lectures, 2019 will continue the CIC model begun in 2016 with presentations being 12-minute oral presentations (no slides/power points) to a circle of community participants in four of the five community sessions.
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 proposals 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 the specific interest community. Six 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.
OF NOTE for SYTAR 2019:
As the CIC program grows and matures, there are modifications that are being implemented to support continued opportunities for attendees to have the best, most impactful experience possible. With that in mind, this year no call for proposals will be open for CIC #1. See details below.
We are pleased to acknowledge the continued support of Matthew Taylor, PT, PhD, C-IAYT, former president of IAYT, and originator of the CIC sessions, for his continued support and leadership in developing these sessions. We also wish to acknowledge Tom Peterson of Thunderheadworks.com for his insight and advice for using Liberated Structures. Tom is now the new IAYT Communications Consultant.
