Wendy Cruff - Owner (CYT 100, RYT 200 Baptiste Methodology, Level 1,2, & AAOA with Baron Baptiste Institute, CPF, oMS, Chair Yoga)
I started my journey into yoga 2 years ago. After losing my mother to colon cancer, I tried a class and fell in love. I remember thinking to myself in the first class... why am I here, I am miserable and can't touch my toes, but I stuck it out while feeling inspired by the teacher. I didn't think I would ever go back but I did and I felt better and better after every practice. I knew that this is where I was meant to be. Doing yoga helped me heal from the inside out. The changes I felt were so astounding that I decided to enroll in the teacher training class (100 CYT and 200 RYT). I remember putting on my application that I was taking the class with the intent of opening a yoga studio one day. I accomplished my goal and couldn't be happier. I hope to inspire my students in the same way I was inspired.
