Meet Lynn Whitlow


Lynn has been teaching for over thirty years and has built up her skills and reputation to be considered a master teacher and leader in the hot yoga community. Not only has she has founded and operated seven tremendously successful Bikram Yoga schools in the San Francisco Bay Area — including the popular and eclectic Funky Door Yoga chain — she has traveled to India to study with the Iyengar family to deepen her knowledge and expertise, immersing herself in the culture and traditions that she continues to pass on to others.

Early on in her career, Lynn received permission from Bikram Choudhury to conduct seminars and workshops worldwide as his senior teacher, an honor only a handful of yoga teachers have ever received.

Serving as one of a few select head judges for National and International Yoga Asana Competitions, Lynn worked closely with Rajashree Choudhury, a noted yoga therapist, and has played an integral role in the development and expansion of the International Yoga Asana Championships and what is known today as, USA Yoga.

Her honest, concise, and direct practical teaching and consulting style makes time with Lynn a valuable source for any student, teacher, or studio owner, as she delivers the information you need to know to be successful. Known for her quick wit and “to the point” advice, Lynn is known as the Judge Judy of her domain.

Through Lynn's decades of experience, she is able to lay a solid foundation for the raw beginner, guide the injured, develop the intermediate practitioner, and challenge the advanced yoga student. The teacher’s teacher, she also guides yoga instructors towards becoming their best and offers sage advice to studio owners, assisting them towards gaining their own success in the competitive field that is the current yoga industry. Time with Lynn Whitlow is time well spent.
