Classes/Practices

I teach yoga as a lifestyle, a way of being, and as a subtle and nuanced process of self-discovery, inquiry, and transformation. You will be given the opportunity and guidance to work at your own pace, explore variations, and accept or decline guidance and/or touch. I integrate:

  • Asana–forms using the breath, principles of alignment, energy flow, somatics, and attention to structural differences
  • Ayurveda–attention to individual constitution
  • Awareness Practices–Meditation–inward focus

Class will include holding forms and flowing through them to simultaneously observe discomfort, bring ease to your vital energy (prana), and to access the quiet, stable and dynamic center within yourself. Each class will have a physical and philosophical theme, adjusted per the needs of the students present. Classes will incorporate restorative yoga and other deep relaxation techniques.

“Love and justice are not two. Without inner change, there can be no outer change; without collective change, no change matters.” ~ Rev angel Kyodo williams

Centering Practices

Wednesdays or Fridays, October 7 – 30, November 4 – 27, & December 2 – 25

Practice will include gentle asana, awareness practices (meditation), and optional video recordings.

We’ll be exploring slow, subtle movement patterns, going with gravity, receiving the life force, reconnecting, stabilizing, repatterning, and enlivening. . . .

We’ll include seasonal routines and lifestyle choices that take into consideration the potential for seasonally-induced imbalances and explore ways to modulate extremes through felt sensation and guided awareness practices. 

Zoom Link for all Wednesdays, 9:00-10:15 a.m., Nov. 4 – Dec. 23: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82535317650

Zoom Link for all Fridays, 9-10:15 a.m., Oct, 9-30: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82145664276

Chair as a Movement Tool

Wednesdays 10:30-11:45 a.m.

Zoom Link for all Wednesdays, 10:30-11:45 a.m., Nov. 4 – Dec. 23: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83425432078

Incorporate asana, breathing, and a pause into your work-day and learn how to counter the effects of sitting for long periods. The practice will be dynamic and nurturing without transitioning to the floor, easing joint pain and developing resilience and bone stability.

Pay what you are able (BELOW) (sustaining, supported, community rates) or offer an exchange, use a scholarship or request the recording via [email protected]. You will receive a confirmation.

A portion of class proceeds will be contributed to organizations that are centering marginalized voices, at the intersection of spirituality and justice, and committed to creating a beloved community of mutual care.

Working with Wendy in a class begins with her intention to create a brave and sacred space for each participant. She offers her discernment through one-on-one observation, and she generously shares guidance in the moment for immediate adjustments. I have also benefited from private sessions with Wendy in which I received helpful instruction to integrate into my home practice. All my encounters with Wendy are rewarding, and I look forward to each week.
