Zo Hoka Dashati (E-RYT 200)
Zo Hoka Dashati grew up in Cape Town and moved to London at the age of 19. As a person of color growing up in South Africa, she felt deeply impacted by the socio-political events that formed her environment. She felt that her inner world was a safe space, and would ultimately move on to explore systems and modalities that helped her make sense of realities she felt intricately linked to, but not a part of. Shiatsu, meditation, and yoga became her journey. Learning and sharing from all the modalities that cultivate presence, awareness, and a chosen rather than impulsive response to her environment is now her personal quest.

Whitney Seymour Wheelock (E-RYT 500, YACEP)
Born in Colorado, Whitney is the son of hippies-turned-lawyers who showed him life in two different worlds. At work, his parents were using the law to fight for the rights of others. Through this, he learned the value of humanity and each individual’s right to freedom and love. During the first 25 years of his life, he kept his spiritual side private and outwardly went with the flow of modern America. After an emotionally devastating divorce, he left the United States to explore different avenues of expression. In 2006, he landed in Thailand and attended a Traditional Kaula Tantra Yoga retreat. Feeling nourished and entranced by both the practice and philosophy, he decided to stay for a month, then three months… Now, more than a decade later, he is still sharing Kaula Tantra Yoga and philosophy in a small village on the southern coast of India.
