Wendy Loven

I started practicing yoga in 2003 in order to help my body recover from a back injury. I soon discovered that yoga was good for so much more than healing back pain, it helped in all areas of my life, from reducing stress to building strength. In 2013, I completed the 200 hour training at Namah Shivaya and in 2015, I completed the 300 hour training. I love introducing new students to the benefits of yoga and showing them the myriad of ways that yoga can be used to improve every aspect of your life!
 
I teach quarterly mindfulness workshops for beginners, check the "Workshops" section of the website to sign up.


Wendy Loven instructs the following:
  • All Levels
  • This class is moderately active with the intention to challenge you a bit more than the gentle class, but still provide enough opportunity for modifications and variations so any practitioner can attend and benefit.

  • Yin

  • Meditation
  • This intro to meditation class will lay the foundation of a successful meditation practice, including breath work, concentration, and deep relaxation. Classes will vary in mediation styles allowing all participants, including beginners, to learn a variety of tools to establish a practice. An introduction to hand mudras (gestures), chakras (energy centers), and mantras (energetic statements) will be explained and introduced should you choose to practice them. Dress comfortably.

  • Beginners/Gentle
  • If you are new to yoga this is the class for you. Classes focus on the breath, foundations and mechanics of the postures.

  • Restorative
  • This is a passive practice using bolsters, blocks and blankets to support the body. Restorative poses help relieve chronic stress, stimulate the organs and reduce blood pressure.

  • Gentle
  • If you have never taken a yoga class or simply prefer to move at your own pace and enjoy the gentle variations of all the postures, then this class is for you.
