TEACHER WYNDHAM IVEY
Wyndham started her practice in Charlottesville, Virginia in 1998. She began teaching at Washington and Lee University in 2002 and since then has taught across the country in both studios and at Universities. She currently teaches at the University of Houston.
Wyndham loves teaching Ashtanga to her students and can guide them through the fundamentals so that they can safely and playfully approach more difficult yoga postures no matter their yoga experience.
Wyndham has studied with many teachers and is most influenced by Richard Freeman whose VHS tape didn't leave her side for years in the beginning of her exploration of Ashtanga. Other teachers include: Elizabeth Mcelveen, David Garrigues, Rodney Yee, Doug and David Swensen, Shiva Rae, Manus Manouso, Manju Jois, Yannis Aravidis, Ricky Tran, David Williams and recently Ty Landrum.
Yoga helped Wyndham to recover from severe nerve damage in both feet. She realized quickly that when she practiced, when she found her breath-- she was completely pain free. From her practice, she healed her body. And from yoga and breath, the basic principle of living from a place of ease and strength emerged in Wyndham’s life and teaching.
Wyndham’s love affair with Ashtanga is likely to be the beginning of a life long journey. Wyndham spends much of her time practicing Ashtanga with a strong focus on breath and meditation.
