Jade Whitham

jade-whithamOriginally from Austin, Texas, Jade started her yoga journey at the age of 18 when she stepped into her first hatha class at her university. After pursuing a career in culinary arts and tourism, she attended her first teacher training at the age of 30, earning 200 hours in traditional hatha yoga. One year later, she followed her teacher to India, where she later earned her 300 hour training in vinyasa and therapeutic yoga. Jade’s biggest passion within the yoga community is teaching “relatable” yoga – bringing the heath and awareness aspects of traditional yoga to the Western mindset. After moving to Morocco, Jade started Yalah Yoga, which is her personal yoga brand – bringing multistyle yoga instruction to tourists and locals in Morocco. As an addition to the brand, Jade works with local artisans to create yoga accessories made from Moroccan textiles. She can best describe her classes at “lighthearted” with an emphasis on fun, fluid movement and a childlike discovery of the self.
