Becky Whitmer’s yogic path started in 1990 as a student of Ashtanga yoga and in 1999 as a yoga instructor. That nourished her further exploration of different yogic styles, and ultimately yoga teacher certification in 2003. She has completed 500 hours of hatha yoga teacher training through the Shambhava School of Yoga. With a desire to deepen further, she completed massage school in 2006 and has been a practicing LMT ever since.
In 2007, she began her studies in HeartMind Bodywork and Qigong. Her yoga background informs her massage practice, and her healing work in massage and shiatsu inform her yoga and qigong classes. An avid white water kayaker and all around nature lover, Becky is constantly reminded of the healing power of communing with the 5 Elements, and is inspired to share this with others through yoga, qigong, and touch. All of this is reflected in her warm and down to earth teaching style which emphasizes both the inner and outer experience of asana and qigong practice. Students’ individual needs are always taken into consideration, and each class blends humor, creativity, breath awareness, physical movement, qi cultivation, and more.
