2018 Yoga Australia Conference

The Modern World of Yoga

The Modern World of Yoga

Over 5,000 years ago in Northern India the Indus-Sarasvati's developed the earliest records of Yoga on fragile palm leaves, transferring their knowledge to generations of practising Yogi’s. Yoga continues to spread and evolve, accelerating at a pace never witnessed before through the marriage of traditional practice with the technologies of the modern day. Hot yoga, Aerial Flow, Virtual Vinyasa; It’s difficult to keep up with the ever-changing world of Yoga which is why every year Yoga Australia hold the ‘Yoga Australia Conference’. The conference serves as an opportunity for like-minded Yogi’s to get together and engage in discussion on all things Yoga. Exchange ideas about your own practice, learn from others and get inspired.
