Amir Azulay - Certified ATB Trainer
Amir was born in Israel in 1969. He left Israel in 2000 with his wife, Tamar, on a journey to India, leaving behind a well-established business of 7 years. After three years of study and exposure to diverse disciplines aimed at expanding consciousness, they joined the International township of Auroville in South India, where the years of research into a deeper, more integral approach to education had given birth to the Awareness Through the Body (ATB) Program in Auroville schools.

During the following years, Amir was trained as an ATB facilitator under the guidance of the founders of this approach, Aloka Marti and Joan Sala. Since then he has focused on the ATB practice and teaching ATB to children in the Auroville schools, as well as offering workshops to adults.

Today, Amir is focused on reaching out with this discipline into wider India, United States, Israel and South Africa. He says, “ATB as a tool that aspires to facilitate a process of inner growth, to allow a chain of changes to unfold and manifest for a better life, and a better planet.

Yoga As Peace Practice

Yoga As Peace Practice

Innovation Hall (map)


The Black Yoga Teachers Alliance invites you to join us and the St. Louis community for an experience of Yoga as a Peace Practice to restore individuals who are impacted by trauma from violence and the dysfunction and chaos left in its aftermath.

August 9, 2019 will mark five years since the death of Michael Brown, a wound that prompted national protest, a wound that uncovered the ugly legacy of racial injustice and inequities, a wound that divided a city and finally a wound that infected its people with fear, anxiety and trauma. We return back to those wounds to begin to heal.

“Healing begins where the wound was made.”

— Alice Walker

Disruptive Innovation in Education

Disruptive Innovation in Education

Ongoing (map)

Education in its current form hasn't changed since its standardization in 1892. If you're anything like me, you'd like to shake some of that up a little bit. We've got to do something better/different/unique/special/well....innovative.

Coined by Clayton M. Christensen of Harvard University. Disruptive innovation in education is:

  1. the catalyst for bringing about more equitable access to high-quality education.

  2. is the mechanism for bringing about a personalized education system

  3. a process to circumvent the political battles that have historically been at the center stage of education reform.

Come ready to learn, connect and disrupt while we study together, connect with experts and create a little disruption of our own.

What is an UNconference?
