Holistic OT and Yoga Summit Retreat 2016

Three occupational therapists met this September for the “First Annual Holistic OT & Yoga Summit Retreat” to discuss the future of Holistic OT and how they can continue to support one another.

Betsy Shandalov, OTR/L and Mandy Lubas, OTR/L, who are both advanced trained in yoga and other holistic health approaches, flew in from California and Massachusetts to spend a weekend with Emmy Vadnais, OTR/L in the Twin Cities, MN. They discussed ways to continue to support OTs who integrate complementary and integrative medicine into OT practice.

They look forward to inviting more therapists to join them next year!
