"Our vision for The Yoga Summit is to democratize the experience of delving into yoga beyond the physical practice by providing a global audience access to the teachings of industry thought leaders"
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2017
The Yoga Summit, a 21-day transformative yoga online event, is uniting hundreds of thousands of people around the world with its 21-day online curriculum from February 2 - 22, 2017. Attendees will explore a diverse selection of topics related to yoga, health, and inner wisdom from world-renowned experts like Danielle LaPorte, Seane Corn, and Elena Brower, with a new interview dialogue each day conducted by host and co-creator Nicole Vahlkamp. Registration is free at http://www.theyogasummit.org.
Created by Nicole Vahlkamp, Vincent Chevalier, and Raphael Harmel, The Yoga Summit aims to bring ancient wisdom to modern practitioners using the popular “Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)” educational format for bringing expert instruction to a global audience online.
“For 28 days I was immersed in a yogic lifestyle at an ashram for my Yoga Teacher Training Course, but I wish that more yoga practitioners had the time and resources to take weeks off and travel like that. Our vision for The Yoga Summit is to democratize the experience of delving into yoga beyond the physical practice, by providing a global audience access to the teachings of industry thought leaders,” says Vahlkamp.
Although yoga originated between 5,000 and 10,000 years ago, its popularity is rising now faster than ever. A survey conducted by Yoga Alliance and Yoga Journal reports that the number of Americans practicing yoga has grown by more than 50% in the last four years, to more than 36 million yogis as of 2016. While women have dominated the modern yoga industry, the number of American male yogis is rising and reached 10 million by the end of 2016.
Valhkamp’s desire to share yoga’s complex tapestry of exercise, breath work, meditation, discipline and service with anyone seeking it is becoming a reality through The Yoga Summit. The community’s interest in top-quality instruction expanding beyond asana, the physical component, resounded in the success of The Yoga Summit’s $16,000 Indiegogo campaign – the highest funded online event to-date on the crowdfunding platform. Through this outpouring of support from the yoga community, it will be possible for the co-creators to donate 10% of the summit’s premium pass sales to international charities including Every Mother Counts, Warriors at Ease, Heart Pilgrim, Off the Mat, Into the World, and Tout Est Un.
