Hannah Whittingham

Hannah put on her ballet shoes at the age of two, and has since dedicated her life to collecting professions. After a spell in the Royal Ballet as a teenager, she studied Hannah Wat Cambridge University to indulge her writing, before training at the Royal Academy of Music and spending a few years performing in the West End.

Yoga, however, has been Hannah’s biggest revelation. Drawn to its physical benefits, she soon found the remarkable transformation it could have on her over-active-ping-pong ball of a mind.

After building a steady daily practice, she trained in traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa, Rocket Yoga and Yin in India and Thailand with ‘It’s Yoga’ affiliated Jamie and Dulce of The Yoga People, two strong spirited, huge hearted teachers, who she now assists in training new teachers. At the heart of her practice is strong, steady breath, and the search for stillness in the most dynamic of practice. Yoga is slowly teaching her forgiveness, of herself as much as others, and she tries to inspire this in other people.

Hannah extends huge gratitude to all her teachers past and present, especially to Jamie and Dulce, and to The Dude, Stewart Gilchrist for kicking her asanas, and for reminding her daily that yoga can change the world.
