About the Presenters

Reggie Hubbard (RYT 500) is the Founder/Chief Serving Officer of Active Peace Yoga, whose mission is to serve all communities, all practice levels, and lifestyles by helping people nurture foundational habits of self-care, rather than viewing wellness as an afterthought.

In addition to his yoga teaching practice, Reggie has held many senior strategic and logistical roles across a variety of fields, ranging from global marketing, digital and community organizing, government relations, international education to Presidential campaigning. He currently serves as a leading progressive political strategist, regularly interacting with elected officials on Capitol Hill and managing relationships, impact and communications among the broader progressive movement. Reggie's dharma sits at the intersection of bringing more peace and balance to activists AND to guiding the wellness community toward being more engaged, concerned citizens. He is open to collaborate with anyone on teacher trainings on issues of social justice and inclusion as well as speaking to communities to facilitate these challenging, important conversations.
