About your Facilitators
Charlie Redd is an entrepreneur, mentor, community organizer, and healer. At the core of everything that she does is a passion for social justice and a mission to create spaces where people from marginalized groups can show up as their whole selves. Back in 2018, Charlie opened Haven Yoga Studio in Indianapolis, Indiana after years of practicing, working in studios, teaching, and experiencing the reality that, as a black person, she was unable to do her deep work in the spaces that were available to her. Charlie founded Haven to provide an accessible and affirming space where people can practice in community and safely deepen their wellness practice amongst others who care about their wellbeing. Charlie is a mentor for folx who are interested in digging deeper into their own practice and learning how to advocate for themselves in the wellness space, as well as a teacher for wellness leaders who are ready to learn how to be more supportive of different communities. She also works with organizations to offer coaching and facilitation around social justice, anti-racism, and healing justice with the use of wellness tools.
Lauren Roberts is a coach and strategist for progressive candidates and high-integrity women, helping them trust and own their power to create change. She also facilitates anti-oppression trainings with her co-conspirator Charlie Redd, and as a trauma survivor and yoga teacher, she’s deeply committed to confronting and healing systemic oppression within ourselves, the culture, and our politics. Lauren trained as a yoga teacher in 2013 with Yoga District in Washington, DC, and over the last decade-plus has served as a legislative aide to U.S. senators, a senior campaign staffer, a fundraising and communications strategist, and a community organizer.
