To live this mission, there is a whole lot of exciting and vibrant work that has to be done: research, practice, learning, and educating. All the while, he remembers how important it is to breathe. To take in the breath of life that he chose to take so long ago. To spend time with his new family. To run with his dog. To practice his yoga. To go on some long bike rides. And to spend time suspended in the moment with a clear mind.

Whitney Wilder, RYT
Whitney began her journey on the yoga path in 2007 when she attended a class for the first time with her mom in Lexington, Ky. This began what became a long-term interest and appreciation for the techniques and transformative practices that yoga can offer. She completed her teaching certification at Yoga East in June 2013 while attending graduate school at the University of Louisville. Her studies in humanities and linguistics led her to delve deeper into the auditory aspects related to the breath and chanting exercises experienced in some yoga classes. Her main practice is Mysore-style Ashtanga yoga, but she also enjoys a good restorative practice. Her eclectic taste supports a wide variety of yoga styles. Whitney has studied under various experienced instructors like: Laura Spaulding, Becky Thompson, John Friend, Kino Macgregor, David Garrigues, among others.
Whitney’s classes vary from high-powered vinyasa to a slow, blissful gentle flow. She enjoys exploring the anatomical aspects of the poses and the relaxing sensation of breathing awareness and meditation. Modifications are given for most poses and props are always encouraged. Whitney endeavors to offer a comfortable and respectful atmosphere for her classes. Everyone is welcome to join! Come explore movement and breath with fun music and good company.
