Meet the Owners

We are Jennifer and Rob Whitaker and we are the proud parents of our daughter, Aurora. She is the reason we decided to open a Zooga Yoga studio in the South Bay. After taking just a few classes at Zooga Culver City with our little one, we knew we had found a perfect fit for our family and decided to open our own studio.

Jennifer always had entrepreneurship in her blood. Although she thoroughly enjoyed her years in large-scale corporate event planning, she dreamed of becoming her own boss where she could combine her passion for wellness and event-planning. In 2015, that dream found new focus when her daughter was born. Jennifer’s priority became finding a calling, not a job, where she could be a strong, female role model to her daughter without having to sacrifice spending time with her.

A devoted runner, Jennifer has always had a passion for health and wellness. She has been practicing yoga since her college days and values the importance of mindfulness in her personal and professional life. She can’t wait to see the positive impact yoga and play has on generations to come!

Rob plays the role of devoted husband, father, and business partner. While you may not see him around the studio on a daily basis, he can be see occasionally building a shelf or hanging a sign.

We are so excited to be a part of the south bay community and can’t to meet all of your kiddos!
