“Yoga Radicals is myth busting! In story after story Allie shows us Yoga is not a path to relaxation and calm but a potent portal to blowing the lid off of our life expectations and discovering greater meaning and service toward collective wellbeing. Yoga is Radical!’

— Edi Pasalis, MBA, MTS, former Director of the Kripalu Innovation and Learning Network and the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living

What Readers Are Saying About Yoga Radicals

Available August 2021

Yoga Radicals

A Curated Set of Inspiring Stories from Pioneers in the Field

Published by Singing Dragon Press in August 2021 forward by the Amy Wheeler PhD, former Board Chair of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and founder of Optimal State.

Allie Middleton facilitates and writes from an inspiring ‘Presencing approach’. The author introduced this creative approach to innovation and emerging leadership during the inaugural Community Interest Forum on Community Healing and Social Activism at a 2018 International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) conference. This approach guides deep open dialogue and makes visible how global yoga innovators from a variety of traditions and contexts have uncovered a collective deepening in shared inquiry.  Many benefits are now resulting from the awareness of how accumulated personal practice can be consciously applied at scale.

A unique example of moving from the ‘me’ consciousness to the ‘we’ consciousness, Yoga Radicals invites readers to join pioneers on a path of social action through personal transformation. 36 interviews were video recorded during the winter and spring of 2020, as the world was self sheltering during ‘corona time.’  Available for listening here.

The yoga narratives that form the heart of the book are inspirational stories from innovators and elders who have created transformational change in their own lives, or incorporated yoga into a bigger vision to benefit society and the planet. The book also presents a toolkit of actionable steps for readers to create social action and/or change.

…an extra miracle, extra and ordinary:
the unthinkable can be embodied
in stillness & action…
