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 effects”.
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 training.
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.
