ANOUK AOUN WENDEL
Asana Teaching & Asana Assistant
Attending her first class in 1997 Yoga soon became a daily practice for Anouk, in and beyond its physical aspects. Over the last seven years Anouk has been regularly teaching at Teacher Training programs, under the guidance of her teacher Julie Martin, in India since 2010, in Bali at Yoga Arts with Louisa Sear and Intuitive Flow with Linda Madani.
Today Anouk’s teachings in these practices are inspired by her heart teacher and partner Emil Wendel. She endeavors to keep learning from the teachers mentioned above, and other senior teachers, as she honors the wisdom they have accumulated throughout their many years of Sadhana.
Working with breath, movement and meditation, Yoga allows Anouk to reach a subtle center point where she experiences a sense of stillness, groundedness and attentiveness. Anouk sees teaching as an act of giving and devotion; her intention is to guide and inform her students and to encourage us all to remain inquisitive, joyous and non-dogmatic along our spiritual journeys.
