Eli Walker is the founder/CEO of the internationally-acclaimed Drunk Yoga®, the first-of-its-kind interactive yoga company that infuses the social ritual of a happy hour or morning coffee into a beginner-friendly yoga practice using games and icebreakers to create a sense of belonging for corporate team-building and private events. She has a passion for helping leaders build strong, conscious communities by helping them tap into the intersection of mindfulness and storytelling--the entry point to self-empowerment.
As a keynote speaker, she uses wellness, meditation, yoga, storytelling (and sometimes wine!) to make kindness, joy, and empathy easy for business leaders to foster within their teams. Eli’s interactive corporate offerings are unparalleled. She’s more than just a speaker - she’s an engaging and seasoned storyteller who unites her audiences with talks grounded in what’s real. Eli marries her comedic approach to personal experiences with data-driven insight, leaving her audiences illuminated with empathy, electrified with joy, and, most importantly, inspired to create change.
Before founding Drunk Yoga®, Eli earned a BFA in Acting from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, with an emphasis on both experimental theater and sociology--particularly as it pertains to community-based theater.
