WENDY OBSTLER, E-RYT 200, SY4F, YOGA EDUCATOR
Course Instructor, Teacher Training
Wendy has worked with countless women and their partners struggling with fertility challenges & pregnancy loss, witnessing over and over again the powerful benefits of yoga on fertility. This practice of fertility yoga is a comprehensive methodology, created by Brenda Strong, which specifically addresses the stress and emotional component often associated – but sometimes ignored – with the fertility journey.
Over the past decade Wendy has had the honor to guide and hold the space for hundreds of women moving through the tumultuous roller coaster ride of fertility. She has also been through her own personal bumpy ride on the fertility wagon. After two miscarriages, Wendy conceived her amazing son, Henri. Wendy owes much of her ability to stay calm and trusting of her body to her yoga practice. In 2009, Wendy was diagnosed with a “severe” disc herniation in her low back. She used the practice of specific yoga approaches, therapeutically, to stabilize and manage that injury with no other medical interventions. So it brings her great joy to now share the tools of yoga with other individuals in chronic pain, recovering from injury, post-operative rehab and to help build an awareness towards injury prevention. Wendy is a proud member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists, Yoga Alliance* and an Ambassador of Strong Yoga®4Women. To learn more: divinesparkyoga.com and livinglela.com
