RYT-200, Baptiste Methodology
Advanced Teacher Training, Baptiste Methodology
Whitney discovered yoga in 2010 when she asked a friend to recommend a local yoga studio.
She had heard yoga was a great workout and had the added benefit of quieting the mind. In search of a little peace of mind, Whitney attended a class offered by a local Baptiste Affiliated studio, and was immediately hooked. Having benefited so greatly from the sense of centeredness, peace and good health this style of yoga provided for her, Whitney embarked on becoming a certified yoga teacher the spring of 2012 so she could share this wonderful practice with others. Her intention as an instructor is to teach her students how to find peace and ease in their heart and in their mind through Baptiste influenced power yoga. Outside the studio, Whitney works in the finance, accounting and risk management field for a Wellness company. She holds a Masters of Business Administration and Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting, both from the University of North Florida. Outside of work and the yoga room, Whitney enjoys spending time with her friends and family, attempting to train her 75lb unruly Golden Retriever, outdoors, concerts, and traveling.
