I'm Whitney and as a white lady teaching yoga in a western capitalist context, I come to yoga to further the conversation of justice and build transformative relationships across diverse communities. I do my best to integrate the the non-physical practices of yoga into a class setting in order to deepen and embody what it means to live in alignment with our values and hearts from day to day.
Today I teach yoga to honor its roots and create a home for radical imagination and wisdom to grow through movement in your body.
I've found refuge in movement for as long as I can remember. I'm not super coordinated, or naturally strong. When I was introduced to yoga as a teenager (by my first boyfriend's mother), it opened a door to mystery, wonder and devotion and gave me some physical tools to ground this curiosity in my body.
