Ella Noah Bancroft is a Byron-based writer, connection and sexuality coach, activist, Yoga teacher and story-teller, who works towards promoting the wellbeing of our environment, the strength of our personal connections and the rights of Indigenous people. As well as being the mind behind socially-conscious clothing brand Yhi Collective, Ella runs regular connection coaching workshops, and her weekend-long event The Returning is taking place in the Byron shire this November.
