Ebony Wheeler is a Washington DC native, mom, healer and change agent. She started her Yoga journey in 2014. Yoga was a way for her to heal and truly get to know her true self from the inside out. She’s explored various styles including Kundalini, Vinyasa flow, Hatha and power sculpt. Ebony understood that wellness was a foreign term in her community and knew she needed to be a catalyst and teach others. In 2016 she started her Yoga Teachers Training journey with Capitol Hill Yoga’s 10 month intensive in Washington DC., completing the program and received her 200 hour certification.

Ebony quickly implemented the practice into her youth development work and started teaching private students Group training came natural to her as she has a genuine love to help people achieve a level of security on their mats in a room full of people. She has a way of engaging each individual student meeting them where they are. She’s taught at some major events in the DMV and in several studios, however her fulfillment comes from the beginner students. Her philosophy is grounded on safety and honoring your own body.

The one thing that Ebony wants all her students to walk away from her classes feeling is “freedom and empowerment.” She follows a quote from BKS Iyengar “ Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life” Ebony believes that one who focuses on balancing the mind body and spirit can achieve mastery of self , making it easier to handle the world. “Too many times we have to suppress our true selves in the name of navigating the world, being safe! It’s time to cut that out. Do you, Be you, the world is much better without a bunch of robots… lol” and remember “Bend don’t break and Never Fold unless it’s Forward” (Ebony Wheeler)
