A Sad Goodbye and a Warm Welcome

Published: May 12, 2016

On May 12, 2016, Yoga Alliance® and Yoga Alliance Registry board of directors said goodbye to long-time board member Margie Deutsch Lash, E-RYT 200. We sincerely thank Margie for her for valuable contributions over the years in helping us become a better organization. Margie joined the board of directors in February 2011. She chaired several of our committees including the Governance and Education Committees. Moreover, Margie was an integral part of the Member Benefits Committee, which instituted over 30 partners that provide our members with discounts and services. We wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors. Thank you for your service, Margie!

Though we are sad to see one of our board members leave, we’re excited to announce the addition of a new member to our board: Dr. Renee Moorefield, E-RYT 200. The board confirmed Renee for a three year term that began on March 22, 2016 and ends on March 21, 2019.

Renee has been on a 30-year journey to cultivate enlightened leadership as a path to a better world. As CEO of Wisdom Works, she coaches senior and emerging executives to develop cultures of mindful action, engagement and wisdom. Renee speaks internationally about leadership and coaching, and authors a blog Wellbeing + Strategy. She also contributes to articles in peer-reviewed journals and shares insights through outlets like Experience Life and The Huffington Post. She also co-authored the book Driven By Wellth: The 7 Essentials for Healthy, Sustainable Results in 21st Century Business & Leadership (2004). She lives and teaches yoga in Colorado’s Pikes Peak region with her life partner David and their dog Trek. We look forward to working with Renee to shape the future of Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance Registry.
