Meet Vanessa Wurtz

“I only learned to touch my toes last year! “

I first discovered the practice of yoga as purely asana; a kaleidoscope of beautiful shapes in a sequenced dance that everyone was well versed in. Everyone, with the exception of me. My ego told me that my physical body and high energy mental space was not one of a yogi. It truly took many years of practice and avoidance of practice that I discovered the prana, the sweet cosmic energy that permeates the universe on all levels. This colorful kaleidoscope dance was suddenly felt in my soul and expressed in my movement. The unity of body, mind, and breath was so profound it became necessary to help others discover this bliss.

With an artistic rolling stone as a father and grounded public servant as a mother, I found my home in the yoga community. The desire for my students is to find that place on the mat where you dance in colors, breathe in rhythm, sweat out the small stuff, and find strength as a valued community member. Knowing that you are not your body, your age, your accomplishments, your possessions. You are vibrant colors dancing in ecstatic motion. You are perfect just as you are.

As a RYT200, my classes range from vigorous Vinyasa Flow to whimsical Slow Flow. Each session be prepared with water and a sense of humor; yoga is allowing grace with yourself and others at all times. With a teacher in my soul and a mind full of questions, each class is an open exchange to learn from one another. My hope is that you step off the mat loving yourself wholly just a bit more than when you came.
