Yogiraj · Senior Trainer · Specialty Trainer

Wendy Newton is a senior teacher at ISHTA Yoga and a lead trainer in the ISHTA teacher training program. She has studied with Kavi Yogiraj Alan Finger since 2002, and was initiated by Alan into the ISHTA Yoga lineage as Yogiraj, or yoga master. Wendy’s private practice combines Polarity and ISHTA Marma energy work, yoga-based counseling, and ISHTA yoga asana, pranyama, and kriya techniques. Wendy is co-authoring a tantric interpretation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali with Alan, and she conducts workshops and lectures on this and other yoga and polarity-related topics. Her group yoga classes combine subtle body awareness, physical alignment, and breath-based movement to help inspire students to move with grace, no matter what their “condition,” and to gain perspective in their lives.
