Physicians CME Mind/Body Medical Conference

After closely monitoring all available information from the CDC and WHO related to the continued spread of the Novel Coronavirus COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution for our attendees and our faculty members, The Heart and Science of Yoga® LIVE CME Conference, scheduled for October 20-24, 2020 has been cancelled.

Please stay in touch and visit our website often. We hope to begin planning for the October, 2021 conference soon.
