Event description

Description

Yoga Research Symposium hosted by the University of Westminster and the Minded Institute.

Yoga research in the UK and beyond is helping to promote the inclusion of yoga in health care and support enhanced awareness of how to use yoga practices with people who have various health conditions. Join us on December 9th to hear leading yoga researchers speak about their exciting new findings, hear an overview of cutting edge research conducted in 2017, learn about how to read and conduct yoga research, and the pathways through which yoga is entering the NHS.

Some of speakers include:

Dr. Tina Cartwright who will share information on her analysis of the Big UK Yoga Survey

Dr. Patricia Gerbarg, one of the world’s most notable integrative psychiatrists who recently conducted a study with Dr. Streeter, funded by the USA Government on yoga’s potential to increase GABA- in a depressed population. (This is the information is not yet published and will be the first time it is shared in the UK)

Heather Mason providing an overview research from 2017 and information on a yoga social prescribing pilot that she and others are working on with the West London CCG.

Dr. Ned Harfield and his work using yoga for back pain management for NHS

Dr. Laura Madeley on how to read yoga research and conduct trials

Additional leading lights will also join us to share their findings. We will also have a research poster session open to anyone who wishes to bring a poster either on a case study or a research trial.

Time: 10am-5pm

Cost: £40 (All profits will be donated to the Yoga in Health Care Alliance-a social enterprise dedicated to bringing yoga into health in the UK and beyond)
