Whitney R. Simpson, E-RYT 200, R-CYAMT, Co-Owner Whitney began practicing yoga as part of her recovery after stroke and brain surgery in 2005. She was hesitant a yoga practice could ease her chronic pain. Needless to say, she was wrong. Embracing the practices of yoga and meditation have been foundational for her recovery. Prior to completing her first yoga teacher training, Whitney received her Certificate in Spiritual Formation. In 2017, she published a devotional with Upper Room Books. She is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 200), Christian Yoga Association Master Trainer (R-CYAMT), a Spiritual Director, and is trained in the Usui Method of Natural Healing.

Debbie McBroom, RYT-200 Debbie discovered yoga 10 years ago as a perfect addition to her life-long commitment to fitness and well-being. Yoga practice supported her training as a triathlete and distance runner, as well as a busy mom and pre-school teacher. As an exercise enthusiast, Debbie has enjoyed all kinds of group fitness classes, but yoga found a special place in her heart for its wholistic approach to body, mind and spirit. After taking a sabbatical with her husband in 2017, she felt a yearning to help others experience the peace of sabbatical in the midst of everyday life. This inspired her to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) in 2018. In addition to the restorative benefits, Debbie focuses her personal practice on building strength, balance and flexibility and is eager to help other yogis do the same.
Erin Morris, RYT-200 Erin began her yoga practice in 2017 during a difficult season of anxiety and chronic pain. She found a home at Bloom and was amazed at the way God used the practice of yoga within a safe space to bring hope and healing, both body and mind. Erin enjoys the childlike wonder she has rediscovered through yoga and has a desire to guide others into their own freedom, joy and strength. Erin completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2020 with Steadfast and True and is thrilled to be teaching classes at Bloom, suitable for all levels of practitioners.
