Wendy's classes include yoga asanas (postures), meditation and pranayama (breathing). Wendy helps students explore their bodies to find, release, stretch, stabilize and strengthen muscles, joints and emotions. All classes are designed to help each student discover their own alignment with body, mind and soul. They cater to all levels from beginners to experienced practitioners.
Wendy's yoga teaching, and her life-long interest in fitness, diet and general wellbeing, has merged with her professional studies of Psychology and Non-Violent Communication. Her classes combine all of these influences resulting in a learning space that is focused, empathetic, accepting and above all – fun!!
Her journey with yoga started in the late '70s, when she began to practise at home using Swami Sarasvati's books as guidance. In 2009 Wendy found the perfect teacher Helen King at Mount Nebo, and has practised regularly with Helen since. In October 2012 Wendy's heart led her to a commitment to become a yoga teacher herself, and she completed Level 1 yoga teacher training under the wonderful guidance of Kate Pell and Dan Alder. She is now assistant to Kate Pell on these exact teacher trainings.
Wendy also studied near Rome with the inspiring Diane Long, who studied under Vanda Scaravelli, a student of BKS Iyengar; and with Donna Farhi, world-renowned yoga teacher based in New Zealand.
Wendy lives in the sub-tropical location of Mt Glorious near Brisbane with her cat and three chickens.
She has been with Santosha since the beginning, & is a very popular teacher.
