I am a certified yoga teacher and registered holistic nutritionist. I am passionate about creating community. I believe in supporting and empowering one another through this beautiful and oft-times challenging journey called life.
I began teaching yoga in 2006 and specializing in teaching people over 55+ in 2008. In my classes there is an emphasis on creating body awareness, both anatomically and experientially. This means that you will learn about your body, but even more importantly, you will learn to feel and trust your body and self. Classes include strengthening and stretching, as well as a focus on stillness and relaxation.
Wendy's other love is nutrition. She is the Nutritionist at the BC Compassion Club Wellness Centre Society. She also has taught locally and abroad. Teaching nutrition has brought her to work with international yoga studios in Chile and Nepal. She has gone on to complete Anatomy & Physiology for Bodyworkers through Langara College, Chair Yoga Training with Annette Wertman and Jacci Collins and Pain Care Yoga Training with Tianne Allan.
Jennifer is a Yogini, Traveler, Jewellery Designer, Lover, and Spiritual Wild Woman of the world, who has a thirst for knowledge of the healing arts and our connection to nature and the divine.
She has been practicing yoga for over a decade and has completed over 500 hours of yoga teacher training. Jennifer studied Hatha Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Kundalini Yoga, Restorative Yoga Therapy, Yin Yoga, Mantra and Mythology, and Meditation, and Yoga for Pain Care. Her focus in guiding a yoga practice is to provide space for deep healing to occur, meeting the individual needs of each practitioner, and aiding people to practice in a way that is best for THEIR body. Yoga has helped Jennifer learn to be true to herself, and she wishes to share this gift with others.
