Whitney began practicing yoga 9 years ago and has been teaching in Chicago since 2012. As a former athlete, her personal experience with back injuries and chronic pain led her to pursue a career in Yoga Therapy. She received her 200 hour training with Amy Beth Treciokas at Yoga Now, and she is nearing completion of 800 additional hours of therapeutic training with Inner Peace Yoga Therapy (an IAYT accredited school). Her teachings are largely influenced by Nischala Joy Devi, Neil Pearson, and Maria Mendola, amongst others. Whitney teaches to all ages and levels, and she specializes in pain care, spinal health, cancer treatment, and cardiac disease.
