Wilhelm Engelbrecht is both a RYT 200 yoga instructor and meditation guide. Wilhelm found his way to a yoga class in 2008 due to an injured ankle caused by a poorly placed ditch in San Diego. It did not take long before he realized that this practice was to be his avenue for learning to move, think, and breath more fully in every aspect of his life. The progression from asana to pranayama and meditation came quickly and naturally, and it is now Wilhelm’s sincere desire to bring the benefits of meditation to anyone willing to sit.
Wilhelm graduated from the inaugural class of the New School of Yogic Arts in 2016, completed meditation courses by Kelly Morrison and respected yogi Gary Kraftsow, and the Power of Awareness course with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield. Wilhelm is ready to bring this wisdom and his own experience to the studios of Boston. Most importantly, while balancing his job as an event manager at Harvard Medical School, Wilhelm has been able to maintain a steady and ongoing daily meditation practice for the last five years. He is keenly interested in making the practice accessible for those who live in Boston by introducing small and simple techniques to help navigate the hectic city life.
