Theo Wildcroft is a yoga teacher at the forefront of the movement for trauma sensitivity and inclusion. She teaches local communities in rural England, and especially loves bringing yoga to non-neurotypical children. She’s also a yoga scholar whose research uncovers the linkages between people and place, identity and practice. By the end of 2018, she aims to submit her doctoral thesis on the democratization of post-lineage yoga, how it evolves, and why it’s so important. She also blogs and writes articles on yoga, on social justice, on hope, and on untold stories.
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.
