Wendy Stern, C-IAYT, dedicates her life’s work to supporting people to heal and transform through the process of grief. She is the founder and President of the Grief Support Network, a nonprofit organization whose mission, programs, and network of resources are inspired and informed by Wendy’s personal experience of loss and professional background as a yoga therapist and teacher, speaker, trainer, and group facilitator. Wendy has devoted the last 20 years to being a student and teacher of yoga. She has a BA in Psychology and is certified as a yoga therapist, Reiki practitioner, and facilitator of yoga therapy groups for grief support and self-empowerment. In 2007, when her son Noah passed away, her grief propelled her into a process of profound transformation, which has taught her to live with more joy and gratitude in her life.
