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 and habitual patterns, 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.

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.
