The UK's first "Yoga in Healthcare Conference"

I was thrilled to be able to attend the UK’s first Yoga in Healthcare Conference, held in London from February 15th to February 17th, alongside international health professionals, and UK based colleagues.

Together we explored how yoga improves health, supports self-reliance, and how we might better address health inequalities. We reviewed the evidence from cutting-edge research that supports yoga’s efficacy in healthcare, explored the economic case for yoga, and discussed how we can help create a sustainable health care system.

The overall aims of the conference were to raise the profile of yoga in health care, to explore current success stories, to discuss the incorporation of yoga into the national health care system, and to better understand how yoga could be offered on prescription.
