Temple Parlor

Yoga instructor Kitty Wittkower’s web site.

temple: from the latin templum (6th Century), a sacred space as defined by a priest or augur, used to describe a house of worship for any number of religions. From the bible, the body is your temple.

parlor: from the French parler, or to talk. A front room for receiving visitors.

The history of Temple Parlor began in 1999 in a big Edwardian house on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle Washington.
The yoga studio was in the front room, the double parlor, Miss Blue my British shorthair loved it she would sit at the entrance to the studio and greet every student and they in turn would greet and pet Miss Blue.  Miss Blue had her own yoga and she at times she would imitate the class,  Blue liked all the supine poses best.  As a kitten Miss Blue came down with posterior paralysis she was 4 month old, and she wasted away; she was a little hand stand kitty.  I took her to my acupuncture school where she was diagnosed with what would be polio in a human being, she was given herbs called tiger walking pills, acupuncture and the Acutonics or tuning fork treatments.  She made a complete recovery and is now 16 years old!
Breeding cats is a genetic art form where the composition of the cats must follow the CFA breed standards. In my breeding of Exotic Shorthairs and Persians I work with an array of colorful lush coats and patterns along with various eye hues. My goal at this time is to create the recessive genes of blue and odd eyes. Recessive means difficult to cultivate and when I have success it seems to be almost a miracle. Where a painter works similarly with these previous choices, as a breeder I must also cultivate healthy, intelligent cats with good personalities. To do this one needs to be both midwife and a nurturing mother who daily cleans, grooms, feeds, plays, and loves her cats and kittens. This ensures that each kitten and cat can easily bond and bring joy and love to their new owners.

At this time all my public yoga classes are in lower Queen Anne.  I offer small group Yoga (3-6 people) designed for individuals, I tailor the practice to you taking into consideration your goals, needs and abilities.
