Theo Wildcroft, PhD is a yoga teacher, trainer, writer and scholar. Her research considers the democratization of yoga post-lineage, and the many different ways yoga communities of practice are evolving. Her role as Project Coordinator is to work with the members and steering group to create events that bring academic, practitioner and teaching communities together, and to bring world-class yoga studies research to the widest possible audience.


My PhD explored contemporary yoga culture, with specific reference to processes of authority and repertoires of movement. I am fascinated by the wider relationship between movement and making meaning, both in groups, and in a more-than-human world. My research experience is an interdisciplinary blend of fieldwork, qualitative interviewing, and movement analysis.
