ZENA ROMMETT FLOOR-BARRE FOUNDATION, FOUNDED 1968 NYC
Whitney Chapman discovered Floor Barre® a couple of years ago and became a dedicated student of Jodi Moccia's class at the former Reebok Sports Club New York. A current Yoga instructor and Mind/Body specialist, Floor Barre® brought Whitney back to her childhood days of dancing and she loved the experience of length, centeredness and calm she found after taking class. While participating in her first Floor Barre® Teacher training, she had an amazing breakthrough and released an injury from college in her ankles, leaving her standing in a completely different position on her foot and feeling more centered and grounded than she had felt in years. A student of many movement modalities, Whitney finds the simplicity and the depth of the Floor Barre® technique to be "perfect" in its own right. Whitney currently teaches at a variety of health clubs and privately in Manhattan.
