Dr. Schoen at Virtual World Yoga Conference Feb 19-21

This February, over 35 World-Class Yoga Teachers, Wellness Thought-leaders, and Mind/body Experts are coming to your house . . . if you open the door and let them in. You’ll get to listen over the phone or through your computer via the webcast. Whichever option you choose, you’ll be engaged in the learning experience—interacting in each session far more than any other “distance learning” events you’ve ever participated in before.

I just received the following wonderful post all about it from Dr. Allen Schoen, one of our foundation’s board members. Esteemed author of several books (most recent, Kindred Spirits) and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine with an additional Master’s degree in neurophysiology and behavior, Allen Schoen is one of the most celebrated and sought-after doctors of veterinary medicine in the nation. Why we love this special man—he believes our connection to animals and to other aspects of nature is essential for our soul’s survival.

I travel all over to teach. But given daily demands, it can be hard for some people to get to a conference or a workshop. Now I can come to you! I’m excited to be teaching at the 1st Annual Virtual World Yoga Conference, entitled “Yoga, Health & Happiness”. This 3-day Virtual Conference is scheduled to be held February 19th to 21st, 2010.

This means you stay at home, or get together with friends at a local yoga studio, and connect via the phone or Internet with teachers from all over the world who will share tools and techniques for living a fulfilling and happy life.

The session I’m teaching is called Kindred Spirits: How the Human Animal Bond Can Help Awaken Consciousness and Integrative Health Care for Animals.

When you register for the conference, you can attend any and all of the sessions. If for some reason you can’t make one, you can listen to the recording at your convenience.

Because I’m a scheduled as a conference speaker and faculty member, I am able to extend a special $100 savings to you by using the coupon code ALS219. (Note: this coupon can be applied to your cart during the checkout payment process for an instant $100 off the general admission price.)

This film is being produced by the Land of PureGold Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit providing cancer treatment grants for working dogs, to both raise funds for research in comparative oncology and promote the importance of ‘The Bond’.
