Whitney has been teaching full time since 2002, mostly in Los Angeles. She started practicing in 1996, at NYC’s Bhava and Om studios, and when she moved to LA became immersed in classes with Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, and Hala Khouri. Eventually, Whitney craved the steady foundation of Ashtanga Yoga, and studied with Jodi Blumstein.
Whitney did her first training in 2002 in LA at Center for Yoga and in 2004, completed the professional program with Lisa Walford at YogaWorks. These days, Whitney is a senior teacher for YogaWorks LA and teaches daily classes there when she's in Los Angeles.
Whitney was also a contributing teacher for the Wanderlust Hollywood Teacher Training and served as the music supervisor for both the studio and for Wanderlust TV. Another rewarding aspect of working for Wanderlust has been traveling to teach at festivals and creating specialized soundtracks for their flow classes.
From LA YOGA: “Whitney’s classes bring an ease in which she communicates the flow of postures with a killer soundtrack that effortlessly matches the flow of her words and pacing of her class.”
Lately Whitney splits her time between Chicago and LA. Having taught at yogaview on and off since 2012, and practicing here since it first opened, she considers it to be a true second home. The studio, with its generous and dedicated community, have been an abundant source of growth for both her teaching and her practice.
Originally from Chicago, Whitney is a lover of walking in the sun, swimming in Lake Michigan and staying in to cuddle with her dog.
