Kathy believes there is an abundance of wisdom that guides her practice and grounds her in the present, quieting an otherwise busy mind.  Kindness, compassion and gratitude shape how she interacts with the world.

She loves to meet you where you are; a gentle vinyasa,  more advanced vinyasa, a combination of vinyasa and pilates, yin yoga and yoga nidra. Classes with Wendy always help you connect breath to movement and the meditative aspects of yoga. 

Before venturing into becoming a yoga instructor, Wendy was the owner of Fusion Fitness, Eliot, Maine. from 2011 to 2015.  She began as a Personal Trainer and group fitness teacher at Gold's Gym in Portsmouth, NH in 1999.
