practicing since 1998, teaching since 2004, Director of Purna Yoga 828 in Asheville, NC

As a former professor of philosophy, Letitia Walker longed for a way to teach truly practical philosophy rather than mere theory. She found a way with yoga. Letitia has been practicing yoga since 1998, teaching since 2004, and has studied with noted teachers: Aadil Palkhivala, Savitri, Michael Stone, Elise Browning Miller, and Matthew Sanford. She is a Certified Purna Yoga Instructor at the 2,000 Hour level and the director of Purna Yoga 828 studio in Asheville, N.C.

My focus in teaching is to inspire practitioners to use all the aspects of yoga to find joy, peace, and equanimity while aspiring to a life spent cultivating well-being, self-study, sensitivity, and beauty.
