About Wendy Green
I started practicing yoga privately in my room when I was 15 years old. I had bought BKS Iyengar’s ground breaking book “Light on Yoga” and mimicked the half-naked Indian man in the pictures, the year was 1970. I took my first yoga class in Boston 1972, where I was introduced to healing powers of Raw Food while working at the now famous “Hippocrates Health Institute” and eventually headed their raw food kitchen. These 2 events have shaped the course of my life in every way.
Since this auspicious beginning, I have dedicated my life to learning as much as possible about yoga and diet, walking the walk, talking the talk and sharing what I have learned. I started teaching in 1975 and had my own yoga studio in New Jersey from 1996 to 2005 when I sold everything, moved to the tropics and started my Retreat Center “Casa Verde” in the forest. At the time of this writing, I have well over 50,000 teaching hours and have sought out some the world’s most respected teachers.
