Victoria is a consultant, connector and entrepreneur with a passion for yoga - and making it safer. She founded Prevent Yoga Injury and wrote "The Contraindication Index for Yoga Asanas" in 2012. A practitioner for 8+ years, she left a career in government and international development to pursue her passions. She credits yoga with enabling her to maintain balance and compassion during time spent working in Sudan, Iraq & Afghanistan.
Victoria entered teacher training with a consultant's mindset and immediately saw gaps in available yoga resources, as well as disconnects in the yoga community and industry at large. A problem solver by nature, she set out to fill these gaps and facilitate a needed dialogue on the issue of yoga safety. Her vision is to build Prevent Yoga Injury into a one-stop-shop for reliable and pragmatic information on best practice, yoga safety, injury prevention and contraindications. Victoria is a registered yoga teacher with 200 hours of training and is a member of the Yoga Alliance Standards Committee Advisory Group. She currently teaches at Ganesha's Place in Savannah, GA and travels the US offering workshops in yoga safety. She hold's a Master's degree in Philosophy & Public Policy from the London School of Economics.
