My name is Tim Wichland, and I'm a Hatha Yoga Instructor in the Spokane, Washington area. I’m originally from the small city of Keene, NH, and have lived in Missoula, Montana, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Mexico, a few years on the open roal. I'm a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, with an RYT-500 status. As of 2018, I am one of the few LGBT+ Yoga teachers in the area.
I lovingly teach hatha yoga classes in a heart forward, supportive atmosphere, while teaching safe alignment of our bodies - while performing Asana: the physical practice of Hatha yoga. Yoga is an amazing practice that can help us to learn to better care for our bodies, hearts, minds, and It is an ancient system from India. The practice of yoga often becomes an amazing journey of self-care, growth, healing, spiritual-growth, community, and so much more!!!
I first took yoga with a Senior teacher (very experienced, long term Yoga instructor) was an Iyengar-style college class. I’d seen yoga on PBS as a kid (tried to stretch along a few times); and in my teens, I noticed the benefits of stretching before sports. As intense as my first go at yoga was -- I really wanted to keep practicing. That was in 1999. From ‘99-2010 I practiced yoga with various teachers and styles in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and other locales. But in 2010, I felt a calling to peruse Yoga further - to become a teacher. The Anusara School of Hatha Yoga inspired me, and between 2010-2012 I studied Anusara Yoga at Spandarama Yoga in Sante Fe, NM. Under Senior Teacher, Anusara-Certified, E-RYT-500, Ayurveda Practioner, Wendy Borger, I practiced yoga for 6 days a week, and enrolled in the Anusara Immersion & Teacher Training Programs (Achieved RYT-200 status in 2012). The healing and improved strength & flexibility I received from this yoga regiment as a very special
Upon moving to the Spokane, WA area in 2013; I enrolled in an RYT-500 program. This 2 year program was a further intensive in Hatha Yoga and into the Anusara School of Yoga.
I took a break from teaching Yoga in Fall of 2017 (Got to go to Brazil!). I have happily re-started classes September 2018! I also continue to offer Private Yoga Instruction, in the comfort of your own home, in the Spokane area. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions about starting yoga, the practice of yoga, private sessions, and more!
Namaste, Tim Wichland
