Andre van der Wende

​André van der Wende began practicing yoga in 2008, drawn to its physical rigor, poetic movement, and as a vehicle for stress relief and self-realization. André is also an artist and finds the parallels between the art studio and the yoga studio feed one another. Both are about self-discovery and truthful intention which is where his classes stem from, cultivating a nurturing style that emphasizes discipline and play; intelligent sequencing; and proper alignment. Through humor and humility, André offers a space in which to compassionately explore the mind, body connection in a balanced sequence. André completed his 200 hour teacher training at South Boston Yoga with David Vendetti and Ame Wren. He has also received further training and inspiration from Jacqui Bonwell, Peter Crowley, Les Leventhal, Brenna Matthews, Todd Skoglund, and his wife Susannah.
