Wendy first stumbled onto her mat in 1992 in a church basement on a random Tuesday evening with 11 other people who practiced together weekly in Denver. It didn’t take long for her to realize the difference between yoga and literally every other thing in her life. She practiced as many forms of yoga as she could find for years, and, after becoming a mom, included her two young boys in her practice. By 2012 she earned her certification in kid yoga inspiring her to create her own business, Young Yogis, the first of it's kind in the area to provide yoga for kids and teens in south Denver. Over the next several years, Wendy added to her experience and certifications for Vinyasa, Integrated Vinyasa™ 200 hr, Power Yoga, Yoga Sculpt, Youth Fitness Training, Silver Sneakers, and (a favorite!) SUP Yoga. As a founding Ambassador for Athleta, Wendy brought yoga and fitness events to populations all over the Front Range. Her passion is in strong, powerful practices and the authenticity of the practice. She continues to work on this one shot she has in this wonderful world to make a difference every day, and to learn with every opportunity and each beautiful soul.
