East Meets West Yoga Center

Whitney Woodcock

Whitney Woodcock is both an RYT-500, and meditation teacher that lives yoga both on and off her mat. She teaches alignment-based vinyasa yoga taught by her teacher, Shannon Sharma. Whitney sees yoga as a vehicle to heal the body and cultivate inner joy. Her motto, Joy is the Journey, is her approach to all things yoga, meditation, and a wholehearted lifestyle. She maintains her daily practice of meditation and yoga from the heart of devotion and self-study. She has learned the great truth that everyone can unlock their true gifts and self-worth with a daily devotional practice.

Whitney also believes in the cosmic truth that the soul has a deep desire for travel and she learned so much from the mothership of yoga, Mother Ganga, in India. In Varanasi, she realized the value of finding comfort in moments of discomfort. Consequently, she created her meditation and yoga community for like-minded young adults to embrace the inner beauty of life.

She is in awe every day over the power of the heart and its ability to transform. The gratitude she feels for the journey that led her to her mat and meditation cushion is immeasurable.

When Whitney isn’t teaching meditation, yoga, or mentoring with her teacher, she can be found outside gardening, cooking up delicious Ayurvedic foods, or cuddling up with an inspirational book and warm chai tea.
