2019 marks the IYF’s  20th anniversary, a landmark that is being widely celebrated. The scope of this festival extends beyond Yoga, offering therapy sessions of various ancient Indian healing traditions such as Ayurveda, Chakra Healing, and Pranic Healing. This conference also provides a great opportunity to learn more about Indian culture – from celebrating traditional holidays such as Holi to listening to local artists, the evenings are sure to be full of music and entertainment.

“I am excited to connect and celebrate Yoga with the global community, and I look forward to bringing back with me and sharing with Attune Health all of the beauty, wisdom, and love that Yoga can bring,” says Paula.

Attune Health Founder Swamy Venuturupalli, MD notes, “Contrary to how it is perceived in the West, Yoga is not just contorting the body into various postures. It is a science of healthy living and the alignment of the physical body with the psyche to achieve a healthy state of being. Breath and mind work as as important as the physical postures. Anyone with a chronic illness could benefit from the knowledge gained over millennia.”
