Whitney Blair, RYT200
Whitney is a Florida native who moved to Saint Petersburg after graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University with a B.A in Anthropology and Minors in Art and Philosophy. She is currently pursuing a Master's degree in Global Sustainability from the Patel College of Global Solutions at USF and will be graduating December of 2017.
Whitney has been practicing yoga since 2005 and in 2016 graduated with her 200YTT through Adiaya Yoga Sanctuary. Yoga has taught Whitney that one does not always have to swim upstream, sometimes we can just enjoy where the river takes us and trust in life's journey. More than anything, Whitney desires to dedicate her time to a meaningful purpose and yoga allows her to do just that.
Whitney Blair instructs the following:
Slow and Strong Yoga
This class is ideal for almost all levels of physical fitness - from the beginner to advanced, or younger to older student - or simply those seeking a more active lifestyle. As we allow ourselves to take our time in a slower-paced yoga practice, we find that our muscles become more supple, our breath deepens, enlivens, and invigorates, and our entire being shifts towards a state of greater balance.
Liberal use of yoga props will be demonstrated throughout the class. But since this is a moderately active and “flowing” style of yoga, if you are more physically fit or experienced you can forgo the use of some props and aim for a more challenging workout.
Stay at your own pace, do only what you feel comfortable with, use yoga props, and take breaks whenever YOU need them. Variations will be given for each posture so that the student can tailor the practice to his or her needs, abilities, or physical limitations. Intermediate intensity with some yoga experience recommended.
