      • The conference really inspired me to develop a self-management course for women who suffer Lymphedema after breast cancer surgery. Together with a Lymphedema-therapist we made a self-management course that contains adjusted yoga and meditation program. Something I wanted to do for quite some time.  It's a challenge to integrate yoga-therapy in the medical field. And it's great to meet people from all over the world who want to make this happen. People with different background and professions, but all with a firm believe in yoga and a rational approach to its benefits.  I would advise everybody who wants to help integrating yoga into the medical field to join the conference 2017! You'll feel supported and you'll feel that the time is right!

      • I’m graduated as a psychologist and what I really missed in my education so far was working with the body. The Conference didn’t let me down. I talked with a lot of inspiring people and what I remember most was the loving and compassionate atmosphere among all the people at the conference. I was touched by the talks and the lectures from professionals who are working with yoga in their jobs as a doctor, psychologist or nurse and I found out that yoga can be used in a broad area of healthcare. The programme had a great mixture of demonstrations, workshops, time to talk to professionals in the field and a really nice discussion panel. I’d definitely recommend it to my colleagues and of course I’ll be participating myself! The Yoga Therapy Conference really created some new and fresh insights and inspiration in my career as a psychologist.

      • I was amazed by the fact that yoga has so much more to offer than what I was "educated" in. This conference was my first real, in depth way into the world of yoga therapy and it made me hungry for more. I loved the topics, great speakers and the venue and organisation was excellent. Thanks!

      • I was very curious about the first Yoga Therapy Conference, especially since I'm a child psychiatrist who was just beginning to learn about yoga and its beneficial effects on (mental) health. So thank you Anneke and the YTC for being the big catalyst of bringing yoga into mental health care!

      • I enjoyed myself and learned a lot about yoga in health care, especially about yoga for breast cancer patients. It was a stimulating event and, compared to conventional congresses, I went home filled with new energy.
