Journey Through the Chakras:YiNidra
Sunday, August 2 at 10:30a
Join Wendy Hummell, RYT 200 on Sunday August 2nd from 10:30 am - noon for a 90 minute class that integrates the body and the mind. This class will have limited spots in studio, but can also be practiced virtually via ZOOM. All participants must register and pay ($20) ahead of time as space is limited in studio and those attending virtually will receive an email link 15 minutes prior to class. Register through the link below, and be sure to sign up for the one you want- In Studio OR Virtual.
We will start with a 60 minute yin practice to balance the chakra system. There are 7 main chakras, or wheels of energy, in the body:
Root Chakra/Muladhara, Sacral Chakra/Svadisthana, Solar Plexus Chakra/Manipura, Heart Charkra/Manipura, Throat Chakra/Visuddha, Third Eye Chakra/Ajna, and Crown Chakra/Sahasrara.
Yin yoga helps to stimulate, strengthen, and revive connective tissue, fascia, ligaments, and joints by working with the meridian system of the body. The meridian system is used in Chinese Medicine practices such as acupuncture and acupressure.
The class will end with a 30 minute yoga nidra practice. Yoga nidra, or yogic sleep, is a guided meditation and conscious relaxation practice intended to induce physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. Yoga nidra is similar to traditional seated meditation in that it can help to ease insomnia, anxiety, and stress. But there are some distinct differences. Yoga nidra is typically practiced lying down. Yoga Nidra is always guided and takes you through a series of steps and directs attention to specific parts of the body, the breath, and imagery.
Props are not required but may be helpful. If joining in studio feel free to bring your own props or some props (bolsters, blankets, blocks) can be provided in studio, coverings are required. Don't have props and will be joining us from home? No worries. You cam use household blankets and pillows if you wish

Meet Wendy Hummell, RYT200
Wendy Hummell is a seasoned RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher) with Yoga Alliance. She started practicing yoga 12 years ago to get back into shape after having children, specifically to build core strength. Wendy not only noticed that yoga improved her overall strength, flexibility, and mobility, but she noticed improved concentration and patience from the breathing practices she learned.
Wendy graduated in 2016 from Hot Asana Yoga Studio’s Yoga Teacher Training where she received her 200 Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) certification. Initially, Wendy never expected to teach yoga and only signed up to further her personal knowledge. That quickly changed when she thought to share the benefits of yoga with her colleagues in law enforcement. She underwent Yoga for First Responders training, and has been an Ambassador with the program since 2016.
Wendy is currently pursuing her 500 hour designation and continues to further her yoga training in the subtle body practices such as Yin, Yoga Nidra, and Restorative. Wendy also has advanced training in myofascial release, anatomy, mindfulness, and trauma informed yoga. Wendy has taught hundreds of classes to first responders, at local studios, community organizations, youth athletes, and private clients.
