Yoga is a big part of who I am. It has brought me back to my personal intentions in life. I teach yoga in a way that encourages my students to do what feels comfortable, to listen to their body and always connect them back to their breath. Connecting to the breath is a method for being present. Breathing is one of the most important and intricate part of the practice. We experience full yogic breathing practices in my classes. When the breath is calm, the mind and body connect so we can practice yoga poses with grace and ease. When I found yoga 16 years ago I knew it was something I would practice for the rest of my life. It’s a great way to connect to yourself and to nourish the mind, body, and soul. This yoga has been inspired by my studies with the work of Vanda Scaravelli, Paul Grilley, Dr. David Frawley, Paulie Zink, Master Lam Kam Chuen, Liz Koch, and my teacher Marina Maclean.
As a long-time professor of Education, I know a skilled teacher when I meet one. Wendy is an instructor who provides a warm welcome for each of us as we enter her studio. This greeting sets the stage for her invitation to engage in a yoga practice that is both rich and deep due to her thoughtful preparation and her level of skill. I have attended different classes that Wendy offers from Beginner to Intermediate to Daoist yoga, and I always come away feeling I have learned something new that can help me extend my yoga practice. – Carmen S.
