Thursday Morning Yoga

Session Type(s): Special Event

Ends: Thursday, Jul. 11 8:15 AM

Room: 125

As activists we often get caught up in the perception of progress through busy-ness and neglect the necessity of health, balance, focus and calm. Our morning flow will ground your day in peace and clarity before diving into the business/busy-ness of the conference. We’ll do light stretching, joint mobility enhancements, breathing and relaxation exercises to begin your day the right way.

I simplify chaos, build and nurture relationships, inspire others and execute stated objectives while maintaining calm focus and a positive attitude. I am a veteran of multiple Presidential campaign cycles (most notably the Kerry/Edwards 2004 campaign, the 2008 Democratic National Convention and the 2016 Bernie Sanders Primary campaign) having held senior logistical positions in many high profile, high pressure situations. I also have significant international business, education, project management, marketing, strategy experience and am near completion of my 500 hour yoga teacher training certification.

As Congressional Liaison/Washington DC Strategist for MoveOn, Reggie currently manages MoveOn’s Washington DC presence and strategic engagement among Democratic politicians, operatives and staff, progressive organizations and other grassroots constituencies in service to creating a nation that is more fair, just and works in the interest of all, not just a privileged few. The role is a combination of strategy, operations, media and politics all with an eye of helping elect more progressives and helping elected officials get more progressive through grassroots engagement and innovative campaign tactics.

Prior to joining MoveOn, Reggie held senior logistical roles in several Presidential campaigns and high profile events for the Democratic Party and the Obama/Biden Administration – producing major political events with key roles in the 2004 Presidential Election, 2006 Florida gubernatorial campaign, 2008 Democratic National Convention, the Obama Administration and the 2016 Bernie Sanders Presidential primary campaign. He has also taught civics and managed international education programs, all with an eye to increasing personal engagement and creating community.

Reggie holds a BA in Philosophy from Yale University and an MBA in International Strategy/Innovation from the Vlerick Business School in Leuven, Belgium. He is also a 200 hour certified yoga teacher, passionate about transforming political culture into a more sustainable place where people thrive and flourish.
