The Common Interest Community (CIC) Chairs invite you to submit your work in the form of a one-page proposal (2,500 characters) for presentation at the SYTAR 2013 CIC sessions. We welcome professional practice-based submissions related to any tradition or aspect of Yoga therapy germane to the respective community's interest, with an emphasis on topics to broad audiences and common challenges to the community.

CIC presentations are 15-minute talks, with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. They provide

  • a platform for the presentation of innovative concepts, interaction and dialogue among Yoga therapists;
  • an opportunity to impart practical information for interfacing Yoga therapy in rehabilitation/mental health professions respectively; and
  • a chance to network and share your work with peers.
