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.

David Lipsius, RYT 500, is the President and CEO of Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance Foundation.
