"In each session I feel like I have had a one hour body meditation that connects me to my breath and massages various systems in my body with yoga movements guided by Wendy's knowledgeable and gentle presence. With a background in Mind/Body Psychospiritual Therapies, I place Wendy's SomaYoga Sessions at the top for people with chronic pain (minor or major) , recovering from injury or simply needing a quiet time for mind/body exercise in your aging process... whatever your age! -KPKP
"Give it a try and you will see a difference. I was skeptical at first because I had tried so many other methods for my chronic neck and back pain without much results, but I am seeing improvement. Wendy is a great teacher who not only know yoga but also cares about people and wants to help them reach their goals and potential."Sue
"Wendy has a beautiful way of teaching SomaYoga. She is passionate and grounded in the teaching of this special type of yoga. I have noticed a big difference in my ability to feel like I have control over my own muscles, and I am really feeling that I have a better handle on back and rib pain that I have had for many years. I truly believe that this was the missing link for me. Wendy's teaching of SomaYoga has helped me integrate everything I have learned from years of physical therapy into a yoga practice that helps me to feel that I am able to heal myself from within. Thank you for sharing this incredible gift with me, Wendy. It has been a life changing experience."A very satisfied SomaYogi
I came to Wendy this fall for a super sore SI joint. My pain was so debilitating I could barely get in & out of a car without wincing & bracing myself. Being a fit yoga instructor myself, I was at a loss. I tried yoga, strength training and chiropractic care. While all of those things helped, they seemed to be a bandaid. The pain still returned. My chiropractor advised me to check out SomaYoga with Wendy. I mentioned my goal was to permanently fix my problem. After just 6 sessions, I am 100% better. I have a new, deeper understanding of my body. It’s been 4 months since I had this pain and it has not returned. I feel confident if it were to return that I could use the tools Wendy taught me.Catherine Langer
My shoulders & neck were in so much pain I didn't feel safe driving because I had difficulty turning my head. I went to chiropractic, massages and PT but each only seemed to take the edge off - not really permanently change it. I found Wendy and took some private sessions with her. She started out very gentle, because I couldn't even do the movements the PT wanted me to do. After the first session I felt better immediately and it lasted a few days. I did easy home practice (truly only 15 minutes per day),and my pain and day to day functioning improved dramatically and quickly, without doing 90 reps of the same single movement that PT exercises entail. Thank you Wendy!Karen
