Wren started practicing yoga in high school, mostly as a way to stretch after long competitive runs. A developing injury in college began to fizzle her competitive running career; she remembered yoga and adopted it as a more gentle form of fitness to nurse her body back to peak health.
The more she practiced, the more she noticed the craving for peace and comfort that is found only on the mat. In 2018, Wren moved to a new town where she didn’t know anyone. Diving headfirst into yoga, she made it her primary source of mental, physical, and social release.
In early 2021, Wren completed a 200-hour Yoga Alliance teaching certification at a Tahna Studio in Provo, Utah. Tahna, an important Buddhist concept, meaning “thirst, longing, desire” reflects her personal yoga mission regardless of the style of class. She’s passionate about cultivating deep inner connections in all of her classes and fostering an environment for self-discovery and self-care. She truly believes our minds and mats are a place for healing, having seen it first-hand in her own life.
Wren and her husband Nicholas have been in Virginia Beach since June 2021, having moved here after falling in love with the area on a short vacation.
