Trust The Process


Whitney opened and owned a traditional Bikram studio (Bikram Yoga U-District) in the university district of Seattle, Washington from 2013 to late 2017.


Before then, he taught and practiced all over the world including Korea, Scandinavia, Australia and throughout the USA. 

Cranky Tiger was born several years ago when the yoga began to shift.

To keep the studio alive as long as he did, Whitney and his studio shifted too. The name was changed to "District Yoga & Fitness” to offer more yoga styles and sequences.


 "My name is Whitney. I have followed the Yoga, the traditional 26 and 2 and the original 84 since 2001. I strive to keep it alive and thriving the way I grew to love it."

Hence; Cranky Tiger emerged.

(the name I really wanted to call my studio)
