Wendy is a grounded, playful leader of possibility. She is committed to teaching BIG physical transformation and even BIGGER life transformation to her students through the Baptiste Methodology. From her very first Baptiste Yoga class in 2003 she knew “this is it!”
"Transformation is an ongoing process. I fully believe I can only give what I allow myself to receive. That is why I remain a student of yoga and life. I have received a physical healing from chronic/acute back pain. I have received an emotional healing by identifying and releasing the negative thoughts that keep me from showing up in this beautiful world. I have strengthened my connection to a loving, divine spirit and practice staying open to that source on a moment by moment basis. The most powerful share I have to offer comes from my personal experiences...from my heart!" Wendy
Wendy currently leads class, workshops, and Teacher Trainings at Big Rock. She also leads programs for the Baptiste Institute. Her passion is empowering others to lead an intentional life with no limits!
I started doing yoga videos very sporadically when I first moved to Little Rock. I finally tried a studio class that was heated one day and really enjoyed it. I was not always able to attend classes so I began running. During my pregnancy, I had back pain and had to take some time off from running during my second trimester. I started yoga classes again, this time it was not only for the physical, but for the calm and balance it seemed to bring to my day. I could not wait to take my classes and remove myself from what had been going on off of my mat. I love sharing how yoga can bring a calm, centered feeling back into students' lives and allow them to leave the studio refreshed and ready to shine.
Baptiste yoga allows me to access my physical and spiritual body with no end to the growth or where the goal can be--empowering my brain and my heart to create infinite possibility. To be able to teach to this concept--no limit to growth--therefore no "cap" on a person's goal--also creates an equal teacher-as-student and student-as-teacher learning. It truly is a co-creation in physical action

"Your wings already exists, all you have to do is fly.”
Yoga allows me a chance to spread me wings. My practice allows my BODY the freedom to flow while connecting with my breath. Yoga gives my MIND clarity, opening space to enjoy the beauty that surrounds me each day. Teaching yoga provides me the opportunity to open my HEART and share my practice with others.
I first stumbled into yoga during college in a desperate attempt to rid myself of the dreaded “Freshman Fifteen.” Only a few classes in, I knew yoga was for me. I learned Yoga wasn’t about how flexible I could be but rather how STRONG and FOCUSED I could be. I love the dynamic movements, the all encompassing physical workout, the ever-changing flow, and the much needed deep rest that Baptiste Yoga offers. I want to share with others the joy you are given when possibilities are explored and achieved.
