about the CONFERENCE

At THE CONFERENCE we bring experts in the field of yoga, health and science together to investigate what we can learn from each other and how we can work together.

Eventbrite - The Yoga Therapy Conference Amsterdam 2019


This should be interesting for:

  • Yoga therapists seeking to expand their knowledge
  • Yoga teachers who want to add a new dimension to their teaching
  • Medical doctors, health professionals and complementary therapists who want to use evidence-based, yoga practices in their work
  • Yoga researchers seeking to learn from and connect with leading researchers
  • Anyone who wishes to use yoga to improve their health

  • Perspectives.

    Presenters from all around the globe we will discuss the science of human connection for any caregiver, mindfully through the lens of science, yoga and meditation. Expect different perspectives on yoga and human connection in form of lecture, role-play, discussion and debate.


    This is a yearly meet-up for people with similar interests. People who think holistically. Who wants to make a difference. Who know that change in systems is inevitable and who get excited about playing a role in that.

    It's a recognition.

    A celebration of the work we do. All in our own way, big or small, we are adding to a more conscious and healthy future for next generations to come.

    Network Yoga Therapy

    This event is powered by Network Yoga Therapy, an international Network of professionals and enthousiasts interested in yoga, healthcare and science. NYT was founded in 2010 by Anneke Sips (RN, C-IAYT).


    I believe in yoga as a sustainable life philosophy for an optimal state of health and wellbeing on individual level
    so that I can positively influence our (health-) systems, as an active part of these systems.

    At THE CONFERENCE we consider holistic ways when we ask ourselves how traditional yogic wisdom can be re-defined and how our roles can be re-invented, merging yoga into our healthcare systems.

    We move our bodies with our breath. And, we explore our minds. We connect with others as we reflect, making sense of it all.

    Our curiosity is triggered. We feel motivated from the inside out. We are invited to listen to our inner-voices as new concepts arise.

    We find like-minded and CELEBRATE our common goals. We get closer to our own way, so that we can ignite change in our lives, our communities, our workplaces and ultimately: our systems.

    'Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. -- Maya Angelou

    What Maya Angelou says, is an eloquent way of saying that our systems require new equipment, new standards. These are being created in many different, innovative ways.


    The population is about to grow and becoming more grey. The earth is losing resources. The people are waking up. Change is happening.

    You know why? EVOLUTION.

    Evolution is the reason why our generation doesn't work and live the same way like those who came before us: our parents, our teachers, our professors.

    You raised us. You taught us. You believed in us.

    We are very grateful. And now, systems are moving! We got to take it up from here and we'll go forward, doing the best we can.

    Let's Connect!

    Love, Anneke Sips
