Yoga For Health Yogatherapy Conference Vision San Francisco

592

Published on

The first vision we presented to sponsors for the Yoga for Health yoga therapy conference. The conference eventually got off the ground in 2006 as a much smaller event in Tiburon, and moved to San Rafael in 2007. It is currently held in New York. Our vision significantly changed the modern yoga conference as we were the first to add therapeutic yoga, sacred decor, non-yog workshops, cultural events and music -- now all pretty common at yoga conferences.
