Trained as a lawyer, Henry Yampolsky is a peacemaker and a pioneer in the field of conscious conflict resolution. He is the co-founder of Living Peace Institute (www.livingpeaceinstitute.com), which offers simple, yet powerful tools to individuals and organizations for making a paradigm shift from reacting to life’s challenges with fear and aggression, to being able to respond to them with clarity and awareness. Henry is also the co-creator of Dis-Solving Conflict from Within, a four-step tool for shifting our focus from external circumstances to our direct, present-moment experience of conflict. This shift allows the start of the process of dis-solving conflict at its source – within each and every one of us. An International Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Instructor (E-RYT 200), Henry studied Sattva Yoga with Sattva Yoga’s founder, Anand Mehrotra, in Rishikesh, India.
