About Wendy Weymann (

My yoga practice helped me to ease all the stress & tension from my physical body but I was still struggling mentally, I couldn’t get my mind to settle down & that’s when I fell in LOVE with meditation.  I’m an introvert, I like the quiet, I get frazzled in social situations & I’m really sensitive to noise (having 2 little kids its impossible to escape noise!!).  The meditation just help me establish that quiet, still space within & I’ve been able to train my mind to let go of all the negative thinking that was making me so miserable.

SIMPLE. Just MEDITATE every day ——>>> get a reprieve from the craziness that is my mind!

I decided to become a yoga teacher because I wanted to help others who were just like me,  I try to make all my classes fun & lighthearted ~ I want you to LOVE yoga & meditation as much as I do.

Wendy is a  500 Hour Yoga Teacher with 1700+ hours teaching experience. She has released a guided meditation CD and has additional training in meditation, Vinyasa, yin, kids’, SUP yoga and yoga for addictions.  She has been teaching yoga & meditation since 2006 and is certified to teach level 1 yogic meditation with Padma (Vancouver) and level 1 Vipassana meditation with Noah Levine (Los Angeles).

Before having her two beautiful children and becoming a yoga teacher, Wendy studied Financial Management at BCIT and worked in several different accounting offices. In her spare time Wendy enjoys reading, wakeboarding, stand up paddle boarding and laughing with friends and family.
“The power of yoga is limitless, whatever you are struggling with you can bring it to your mat and let it go” – Wendy Weymann
