Scheera Whitaker: Washington, DC, USA

I was first introduced to meditation in my dreams while in high school. My family wasn’t aware of meditation nor yoga, yet I would sit in stillness for about 30 mins to an hour. A while later I started to explore Yoga by going to local studios in the neighborhood. To me yoga means unity, connecting and creating balance within the mind, spirit, and your physical being. I always consider myself as a student and practitioner because life is about growth. I continue to grow within life and as I teach each class.

I fully committed myself to my yoga practice in 2017. It was at Love Yoga Studio located in Hyattsville, Maryland where I completed my 200-hour Yoga teacher training in November 2018. This journey has changed my life dramatically. In 2015, I had my beautiful daughter Robbie. I got so lost with caring for everyone and everything else that I didn’t have that care for myself. I needed to figure out a way to balance myself internally. Yoga opened that door of self-care and self- love. However, it wasn’t until the passing of my father in December of 2017 and an vicious heartbreak that allow me to fully reflect on and accept my childhood traumas, and start the journey of self-healing.

I teach to share and show the importance of self-care, self-love, and how embracing this journey can bring so much positivity into your life. I enjoy teaching everyone that the universe guides my way. I feel everyone is in need of healing, especially if that need brings you to your mat at one of my classes. The energy I bring to each class is very kind, supportive, personable, passionate, and affectionate. I conduct each class with a very intimate energy.
