So here’s something pretty interesting. There’s a weekend yoga conference coming up April 24-26 featuring yoga teachers from various backgrounds and expertise offering classes and workshops on multiple subjects ranging from asana to meditation to ayurveda. That’s not so crazy. Most of us are fairly familiar with the yoga conference circuit. But here’s the cool part: it’s all happening online and it’s all totally free. Warning: It’s not sexy, it’s not slick and there will be no one trying to hawk their latest yoga doodads and thingamabobs.
If you haven’t already heard, it’s Yoga International’s “Living Yoga Conference” – a completely digital-based event. It’s like yoga just met the internet! Seriously, though, we’re not sure why it’s taken so long for an online yoga conference to be a thing, but we’re glad it’s finally happening. And we were delighted when we were invited to be a media sponsor for the event, because, first of all, we’re just little old YD, and second of all, we’re actually pretty excited to participate.
Featured teachers include Shiva Rea, Seane Corn, Elena Brower, Dr. David Frawley, Rod Stryker, Sianna Sherman, Sally Kempton, Lilias Folan,Vasant Lad, Robert Svoboda, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph.D., Gary Kraftsow. There will be over 15 hours of free workshops, yoga classes and guided meditations.
(If you’ve heard enough, you can stop listening to us and go sign up here right now if you like. For unlimited access and to own the content for yourself, use code ‘LYC1699‘ and save 10% on the “Conference Pass” — more on that below.)
Yoga International has clearly stepped it up lately, especially in the past year, taking its place in the modern yoga world without losing touch with yoga’s roots, and picking up where some other yoga resources have fallen short. People have been left craving substance, and YI has sought to deliver. Some of you may agree they’ve done a pretty good job so far. Speaking of, the Living Yoga Conference happens to be taking place on the very same weekend of the Yoga Journal Conference in NYC…call it coincidence? fate? clever scheduling? In any case, we’ll actually be attending both. How’s that for modern yoga multitasking?
What’s that? Enough about us? Right.
If you’d like more info about the free digital conference you can check out the official YI Living Yoga Conference page where you can sign up for the free content along with more than 70+k other registrants who’ll be participating in the comfort of their living rooms or yoga studios or workplaces (tip: we’re not sure how bosses feel about you being distracted even if you are watching yoga workshops all day so you may need to call in healthy). You can also RSVP on the LYC facebook event page where 20+k other folks have already done so. The yogis might even break the internet.

We’ll probably have our own hashtag thingie going during the conference with #livingyogadork so let us know if you’re participating on Twitter and we’ll all pow wow. (Virtually) see you there!
It had to be done by someone. It really points to the end of an era, right?
My guess, from all the selfies and updates, is that those conferences and “grand gatherings” and festivals and such; had been as much about showing off fashion, poses and social dominance; as it had been about CEUs …
This is one stab at egalitarianism rather than ego.
But I am not guessing that Yoga International is the real deal in yoga; or as close as we’re gonna get in this lifetime 🙂
I’d have to disagree with you here VQ…Shiva Rea, Seane Corn et al. are the ones who pushed yoga into the trajectory of a commercialized whirlpool which we see today. The Sutras say the real Yoga comes from within, not from a bunch of money grubbing marketers of packaged “yoga.” I still respect you though VQ 🙂
Yoga is all about listening to your body. So long as you feel good, you can do yoga as often as you like. Some people feel good doing it three times a week, some people feel even better practicing six times a week. It’s up to you. for furthet info. visit in http://www.yogalifelearninginstitute.com/
