Hannah Wenzel

ERYT 500 Yoga Teacher

Certified Herbalist

Cook

The Natural world is Hannah's greatest love and fascination, and she feels that her pursuits of yoga, healing foods, and community building are an extension of that.

Hannah works full-time as a yoga instructor in Los Angeles. For Hannah, yoga is an ongoing conversation with our mysterious, miraculous bodies, and our ever-evolving consciousnesses. Yoga helps to bring us back into relationship with ourselves, in all our natural complexity, in order that we may show up more fully in relationship to the world around us. Because every body is unique, you can expect plenty of layers and opportunities to “choose your own adventure” in her classes. Students are encouraged to claim their agency within the practice, seeking out challenges when appropriate, and resting when needed. 

When not in the studio or out on trail, Hannah can often be found tending her garden while surrounded by her two cats and two little dogs. She is a novice herbalist in her second year of training with the School of the Sacred Wild. Additionally, Hannah is in the midst of Doula training with DTI.

Hannah combines her knowledge of herbs and plants with her love of cooking. Hannah's goal is to help everyone to feel considered, nourished, and loved with the food she prepares and serves on program.
