Wendy Batson

This week we are highlighting instructor, Wendy Batson! Tune in Wednesday, March 27th as she takes over Wilson’s Instagram Story! 

Wendy was born and raised in Columbia,  studied English, Philosophy and Religion, and Art History at Truman State University and obtained a Master’s in Library Science at Mizzou. Through the years, she has worked at various libraries, but is currently working as an account manager at a mortgage company. 

Her passion for yoga has grown in the last 15 years and she has expanded into aerial in the last 6 years. She has been instructing at Wilson’s since 2016, and enjoys connecting with people through movement and seeing the progress they make along the way. Wendy loves that she is making a difference in other people’s lives, and she’s finding that they’re making a difference in hers as well. She is also committed to aerial, fitness safety, and sharing good habits for life-long practice. Her certifications include YogaFit Level 1 & 2, YogaFit Back, Aerial Physique Level 1 Teaching Certification, and DK Body Balancing Method Pilates Mat Work I & II. 

In addition to yoga and aerial, she is obsessed with all things dance-related. She has enjoyed swing dancing and belly dancing for over ten years, and has dabbled in salsa, tango, and hip hop. Wendy includes, “I love dogs, but do not have any due to allergies, so I live vicariously through my friends who have dogs.  When I’m not dancing, teaching, or at my day job, you will likely find me cooking, reading, practicing yoga, and hanging out with my family.”

Tune in Wednesday, March 27th on Wilson’s Instagram Story for an insight on her day-to-day life or join her for class at Rangeline!  5:30PM Pilates or 6:25PM Aerial Fabric Skills Level 1*
