About Wendy Dahl: I stepped onto the mat for the first time in 1994 to enhance my dance training by cultivating balance, strength, and flexibility. I soon realized that Yoga is the way to transform each moment of our lives into an auspicious journey. The practice inspired so much benevolence in my heart that I dedicated myself and my life to a disciplined practice several years later.
I am deeply grateful to the many teachers who have shared their light and support as my unique style of Vinyasa Flow Yoga continually evolves and grows. My teachings reflect the philosophies of Krishnamacharya, the alignment principles and self-affirming celebrations of Anusara Yoga, the spirit and power of moving with the breath, connecting on a deeper level to one's self by embracing community, and dedication to refining and modifying the experience on the mat through therapeutic compassion for each student’s personal journey. I combine my training and experience of yoga therapeutics, AcroYoga, thai body work, and vinyasa flow so that each student will be compassionately supported and empowered to have a full experience!
About Adam Braun: After “floating” out of my very first yoga class I knew that I had found exactly what I was looking for…a path to Self Realization! The body mind and soul transformation that I experienced after just a single class had awakened a dormant energy lying deep with in me and it was hungry for more! In fact, this awakening was so powerful, that with in 2 months of my very first yoga class I enrolled in the 2002 teacher training program at the Temple of Kriya Yoga.
I was trained in classical Hatha Yoga and studied in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition, Ayurvedic Medicine, Vedic Astrology and Therapeutic Martial Arts. The combination of these ancient and profound practices influence the heart and soul of my teachings. Utilizing postures and movement to develop awareness, strength and flexibility of the body. Breathing practices and meditation to bring peacefulness and tranquility to the mind and deep spiritual psychology to illuminate ones life path creates a powerful transformative process bringing the body, mind and soul into beautiful harmony!
