I'm Whitney, seeker and wanderer, bringing together wanderlust and the magic of yoga and meditation.

This blog is dedicated to YOU. Whether you are searching for yoga and meditation practices to take on the road or cruising for your next retreat, you'll find what you're looking for right here.

Moon Wandering is a community of inclusion, love, compassion, growth, open hearts, and expanded perspective.

When exploring new cultures and countries, I believe in doing your research, showing respect, and not expecting those within the culture to teach you the right way. I believe in learning the language, researching the customs, and knowing societal taboos in whatever culture you choose to explore.

Maintaining this open-minded perspective requires patience, resiliency, flexibility, and bravery. Adopting a custom that isn’t traditionally yours requires careful consideration and recognition of your role within the lineage. 

As a white, western woman, I know that borrowing chunks of another’s culture without paying any reverence toward the source is disrespectful at best. My exploration and integration of various cultures comes from a place of pure intention, open curiosity, and utmost respect. 

Hi there...
