I have been a student and teacher of yoga for the last 13 years. I have studied many different styles, however, the traditions that have called to her most have been Ashtanga and Iyengar. I'm drawn to the extensive lineages that both of these traditions maintain, and also their emphasis on the teacher-student relationship. It has been my experience that having a one-on-one relationship to a teacher is essential for progress in yoga. This is what led me to focus my energy and efforts to working with one-on-one with students. I find that students are able to work on a deeper level and make greater strides in the context of private sessions. I am honored to assist and bear witness to each student's hard work and transformation though yoga.
I have taken 3 extended trips to India in the past few years to further my studies; two trips to study at KPJAYI with Sharath Jois (Mysore, India), and one to study my other passion, Ayurveda, with Dr. Vasant Lad (Pune, India). I plan to return to India yearly to continue my studies in both subjects.
Whitney dispelled any self limiting preconceptions this 80 year old came to her with. Her presence, attitude and deep practitioner knowledge of yoga has given me life skills and positive aging attitudes which I never anticipated as I began sessions with her. Her attention and smiling patience during each session have been such a pleasure, to say the least.
