Whit Hornsberger (Vancouver, Canada) is a student and teacher of the wisdom traditions of Classical Yoga and Theravada Buddhism.
A former athlete, Whit found the path as a result of a career ending knee injury and the subsequent emotional and mental suffering inherent in losing one’s (supposed) self-identity and self-worth. His daily practice and teaching methods stem from the traditional practices of Vinyasa Krama (Krishnamacharya) and Buddhist meditation (Mahasi Sayadaw). A passionate advocate of traditional teachings, Whit expounds the ancient wisdom of these lineages in a relevant manner, making them readily accessible to students at every stage of the path.
A lover of surf, travel and nature, Whit teaches internationally, offering classes, international workshops, retreats and trainings.
Over the course of the weekend we will explore the numerous sequences of the Vinyasa Krama method as expounded by the father of modern yoga, Sri T. Krish-namacharya, dissect the psychological framework of the Classical Yoga tradition and apply the most relevant and potent of Patañjali's Yoga-Sūtras for mental well-being to an extensive, full-spectrum vinyasa practice (asana - pranayama - meditation).
