Whitney Jaganmati Barry RCYT RYT 500
Whitney discovered yoga in 2010, immediately fell in love with it, and committed herself to her yogic practice and to spiritual evolution. In 2012 she became a certified yoga teacher, and then in 2014 she earned her 500 hour certification through Shambhava yoga. In December of 2016 she received her official children’s yoga training certificate. Whitney is currently a manager of Om Ananda Yoga, teaches meditation and assists Yoga Teacher Trainings. She absolutely loves children and has been working with them for almost as long as she can remember. She has worked in day care centers, as a nanny, a pre-school teacher, and a kids camp counselor. She has taught yoga to children at the Eldorado Mountain Yoga Ashram, Preston Middle School, and Respite Care. She also works in PSD facilitating PeaceKeeper circles with elementary aged children. She believes that yoga is an experience that contributes to a child’s physical, social, emotional, and cultural development. Her enthusiasm is a natural fit with kids and there’s not much she’d rather be doing then sharing yoga with them!
