Kelley Carboni-Woods is a writer, wellness advocate, and community organizer committed to using the tools and philosophies of yoga to cultivate liberation, joy, and peace for herself and others. Her connection to the living practice of yoga—a path of mindful wellness and self realization—fuels her work, impacts her life, and propels her to want to share it with others through her writing, events, and guest teaching opportunities. Kelley is focused on making this healing practice accessible to all, connecting to communities that are normally excluded or ignored in mainstream wellness circles. Through in person and online offerings, she centers her work on making these connections with authentic and sustainable tool building. Her writing, offerings and more about her can be found at www.peacefilledmama.com.
Expert Advisory Voices
We have brought together a diverse spectrum of expert advisory voices, including several who have been outspoken in their criticism of Yoga Alliance in the past, to maximize the perspectives and resources considered in this comprehensive and inclusive undertaking. We believe this will ultimately lead to the strongest new policies and procedures. The following expert advisors provide one stream of input in the process, alongside the thousands of voices inside and outside of yoga who will offer their viewpoints through surveys, focus groups, online discussion forums, and other channels. We also are grateful to partners like RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), who are helpful consultants in establishing professional ethics and understanding of a yoga teacher’s appropriate scope of practice.
More to come.
