Nice space and collection singing bowls. Jenn led a not too fast not too slow class. Challenging but not intense.
Long time practitioner, Whitney Korman, found yoga in 1999 at a
community college in Austin, TX. Looking only to fill an elective
and perhaps her curiosity, Whitney had no idea what she would
discover. She now knows she discovered herself!
Yoga quickly became ‘home base’ as she continued into a more
advanced yoga class the next semester. Once at Texas State
University, Whitney continued to practice diligently at her
favorite studios and developed a strong home practice as well. Her
practice became her passion as she realized her deepest hope was
that one day she would be able to share her passion and love of
what, had ultimately, become her own therapy.
Shortly after graduating Texas State University with a Bachelor
of Arts in Anthropology in 2005, she would marry the love of her
life. For years to come, yoga was a part of everyday life and even
as she prepared to welcome their son in 2008, prenatal yoga was
sometimes the only way to bring relief to those fun pregnancy “side
Now with a baby in tow and a full time job as an Executive
Administrative Assistant, Yoga Teacher Training seemed next to
impossible. Then, in 2010, a job promotion for her husband landed
the family in Franklin, TN. Almost immediately, Whitney was on the
prowl for a studio to call home and a training program to finally
fulfill her dream of becoming a yoga instructor. Soon enough, she
found her way to meet and train with, Kathi Perry of Franklin Yoga
Center. Kathi became both friend and mentor, and after beginning
her teacher training at Franklin Yoga Center in September of 2012,
Whitney knew she was in the right place at the right time. She also
became convinced she was in for a lifetime of learning and
Whitney is now a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance
and a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
Her family includes her loving husband of eight years, one
beautiful son, one adorable (sleepy) dog and one prissy (and quite
portly) kitty. Whitney enjoys the outdoors, singing and playing
guitar, and having “movie night” with her sweet family. Whitney’s
style of teaching is geared towards stress relief and emotional
healing intertwined with a bit of humor. After all, laughter really
can be the best medicine and being reminded of that can be
enlightening in itself :). Namaste.
