Health and wellness minded in a virtual space
We understand how difficult it can be to participate in long virtual sessions. Zoom Fatigue is real and many studies have been conducted on how to avoid virtual burnout. We have researched many of these studies, and taken great strides to offer our delegates a balanced virtual conference in order to keep your attention, spark your interest, and participation.
- The conference has been scheduled over a three day period, with each day consisting of three hours of scheduled content, and an additional hour of optional attendance.
- Presentations are forty-five minutes each, with audience engagement built in.
- Bio breaks, as well as “Zoom-ba” stretch breaks have been scheduled into each day’s agenda.
- We have reduced on-line stimuli! Research shows that when you’re on video, you tend to spend the most time gazing at your own face. Taking this into consideration all livestream main stage presentations will allow for presenter-focused video only! Don’t worry, you will still have time to see others during the 4p.m. ET socials on Wednesday, the 4p.m. health and wellness series on Thursday, and the forums on Friday.
- Let’s get social! Because we as human beings are social by nature, we have optional social events built into the conference to offer this necessary need.
- A Health and Wellness series is being offered where you can opt to complete your day with a Yoga or Zumba session. If you aren’t feeling physical, we have one other health and wellness presentation you can participate in.
- Networking keeps us happy and healthy, and is always a highlight of our “in-person” conferences. In order to bring some of that interaction, we did our research and found a virtual platform that allows delegates to interact with each other through various platform features.

Fuel your inner engine
Our breath is like a musical instrument that needs to be tuned. Funny thing is that we will only know when it’s out of tune when we take time to check-in with our internal engine – also known as our mind and body. In one hour, we will reconnect with our breath, ground in our bodies (while seated; with beginner standing poses), and visualize our inner (re)purpose. Session is available to all body types, and will offer variations to make the practice of yoga work for everybody. Beginners are always welcome.
Props: Yoga mat, chair/ desk, blanket/towel and tennis balls (massage balls or rolling pin is good, too).
