The British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) is thrilled to be part of an amazing line-up at a summer conference hosted at Lampeter University in Wales by the Harmony Institute Health Initiative in partnership with the College of Medicine and Integrated Health. The event entitled: Yoga, Ayurveda and the Cultivation of Harmony will take place on Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July.

The event will bring together senior members of the College of Medicine and Integrated Health, the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies, the National Institute of Herbal Medicine, and the British Wheel of Yoga to explore how yoga and ayurveda can be used as preventative tools for improved health and wellbeing.

BWY Chair Di O’Reilly will lead an interactive talk on how yoga can empower wellbeing on the Saturday morning.

“I was thrilled to be invited to present at Lampeter University’s Yoga and Ayurveda conference”, said Di O’Reilly, BWY Chair. “It is a great opportunity to explore how ancient Asian traditions are becoming more integrated into holistic Western medicine. I am looking forward to connecting with scholars and medics from around the UK to see how we can work synergistically together in the future.”

Also taking part in the conference is BWY tutor, Rajesh David, who kicks off the event with a musical overture.

BWY members are welcome to attend the event. Early bird tickets are £65 for the weekend and are only available until noon on Monday 15 May. BWY teachers can claim CPD points for this event at one per hour, provided they reflect on what they have gained and how their teaching may have benefited.
