For Wenche, Yoga is about diving into the very depths of your own self to really experience yourself from within.
Through her yoga teachings she helps others to live bravely, joyfully passionately and to free themselves from barriers and restrictions. Wenche,s belief is that yoga is for everyone regardless of age, gender, physical ability or religion. For her yoga is about bringing people together and supporting them to be the best they can be.
Wenche’s teachings are unique and deeply transformative as she does more then just ‘teaching the posture’. She is deeply knowledgeable on the affect the seasons have on our practice as well as how the elements and chakra systems create a transformative experience on your yoga mat.

Wenche’s teaching varies from pregnancy yoga, children/teen yoga, restorative yoga, Hatha yoga, Vinyasa yoga, pranayama and meditation. Wenche has taken yoga out into the community and has worked within many different settings; schools, universities, prisons and in mental health.
She continues to educate herself with the legendary Shiva Rea and other acclaimed yoga teachers from all over the world. She says that when we begin to really listen to our hearts and move our beautiful bodies our yoga becomes the compass that takes us home to who we really are. By practicing her bespoke and creative yoga flow Wenche feels alive, vibrant and ‘juicy!’
