This unique beginner yoga class is designed for the yoga novice with no prior experience with the practice. During the 8 weeks, I will gently introduce you to the basic elements of a yoga practice: breath work, asana (the poses), and meditation.
The series will explore the basic alignment principles of forward folds, twists, backbends, balances, and strength poses. The course will also help you increase flexibility in your hamstrings, thighs, hips and shoulder girdle; teach you how to protect and strengthen your lower back; release tension in your neck and shoulders; and build abdominal strength.
You will be encouraged to ask questions and to ‘play’ with the poses in a way that allows the body to integrate principles in supportive and positive manner. I will encourage you to feel the difference between proper alignment and misalignment; and to cultivate a practice which supports you, providing benefits (strength, endurance, balance, flexibility, and love of self) that serve far into old age.

I learned more in one yoga class with Wendy than I had in all the years I’d been struggling with yoga. Wendy teaches from the inside out, seamlessly weaving the physical, spiritual and emotional elements of yoga. Her supportive, strong, and gracious presence provides the space for her students to explore the power of yoga, providing instruction that guides the body’s action and also provides the body’s response allowing for full expression of the poses. Wendy encourages strength and vulnerability in her class while she lovingly holds the space so that one can explore, risk, and be open to the gifts of yoga.
