How many yoga studios are there in Southampton County? Only one is found. The studios were listed from Suffolk to Newport News, however, there was only one that lit up my local county map. (The quoted source of information can be found here ).
Kristen Carrington Whitley discovered a community need, matched it with her passion and opened the very first yoga studio in Southampton County, Retrograde Studios.
The yoga studio is based in Courtland, Virginia, the town otherwise known for the Nat Turner Uprising. Southampton County is known for its memorable events, and Retrograde Studios has also made history.
Yoga has many benefits and Kris uses and teaches yoga to transform mind, body, emotions and spirit.

His business aims to offer holistic healing from the physical to the spiritual and emotional. She offers yoga classes to people of all ages, races and physical conditions. On top of all that, her studio offers a relaxing vibe and soothing atmosphere. Tarot readings are available for you to connect with your deceased. Do you need to :
- Heal the past?
- Make amends ?
- Understand the present?
- Reveal the future?
- A connection to a deceased loved one?
- Emotional or mental cleansing?
Retrograde Studios offers tarot readings. Kris offers individual and group spiritual readings such as Girls’ Night, Guy’s Night, Date Night, and more.
Mommy & Me classes are available to create a special bond between mother and child. During your visit, you may be able to do an improv photo shoot, as Mallory Alice Photography is also located in the studio.
Her studio also offers perks for pets such as homemade, chemical-free, all-natural dog treats, horse treats, puppy cakes, and more. Did I mention she also carries several types of sage, incense and Palo Santo sticks?
Stop by Retrograde Studios and find that you’ll walk away with more than “yoga.”
