The Accessible Yoga Conference is a weekend-long gathering of experienced and influential Yoga specialists dedicated to building a strong network of Yoga teachers and students who support inclusion, accessibility, advocacy and diversity. Workshops, yoga classes and panel discussions range from teaching yoga to people with Multiple Sclerosis, to yoga for the deaf community, and how to build strong communities.
Presenters include: Matthew Sanford, Nischala Joy Devi, Cheri Clampett, Dianne Bondy, and Accessible Yoga founder, Jivana Heyman, along with over 20 more teachers from all over the world who are focused on sharing yoga with all.
The Conference will have over 300 in attendance and take place at three locations on West 13th Street in Manhattan: The Integral Yoga Institute, The LGBT Community Center, and The Church of the Village.
A grass-roots, non-profit movement, Accessible Yoga strives to educate and inspire on a global scale by sharing the benefits of Yoga with anyone who doesn’t have access to these teachings - regardless of ability or background. This includes excluded or under-served communities, people with disabilities, chronic illness, and seniors.
