Whitney has been practicing yoga since 2008 and teaching since 2012. She specializes in helping people with back pain, but also sees clients with varying issues including Parkinson’s Disease and cancer. Her public classes focus on alignment, body awareness, and conscious breathing. Whitney offers individual therapy sessions and workshops, and she assists trainings with Inner Peace Yoga Therapy.
Whitney was initially drawn to yoga to maintain strength, mobility, and mental clarity following a running injury. Years later, she decided to pursued yoga therapy after herniating L5-S1, an injury that prevented her from running and practicing vinyasa yoga, both activities that brought her great joy. That injury caused an anxiety disorder to resurface, along with persistent sacral pain. Whitney now approaches teaching through a therapeutic lens; she takes into account each student’s abilities, current conditions, and goals. Her public classes are gentle but strong, and they emphasize breath awareness, safe alignment, and a compassionate mind-body relationship. She specializes in helping people with back pain, but also sees clients with various issues including Parkinson’s Disease and cancer. Whitney offers group classes, individual therapy sessions, and workshops, and she assists teacher trainings with Inner Peace Yoga Therapy.

I offer individual and small group yoga therapy. I visit clients in their homes or at local studios, and sessions range from 60-90 minutes. Each session caters to the client’s needs and goals, and the practice will be adapted for any medical conditions and injuries. I also lead a bi-annual 6-week workshop series on managing depression through yoga, as well as more frequent workshops for back pain and postural correction.
