Elevated cueing & knowledge for yoga instructors (and curious yogis!)
Pam Udell M.S., ERYT 500
Pam Udell is passionate about the study of yoga and anatomy.
Pam received her master’s degree in exercise physiology/adult corporate fitness in 1993 and went on to start a corporate fitness business. She eventually opened a yoga studio in 1999 called Healing Power Yoga. After selling the studio seven years later, Pam continues to teach and has co-lead numerous 200-hour teacher training programs. Her love for anatomy and her zest for teaching yoga motivates her every day.
Due to wrist and back flare-ups in her past and the desire to keep her students as safe as possible, Pam researches, reads and studies as many anatomy articles (as it pertains to yoga) as she can. Pam believes the more we know about poses and how they can help us in everyday life, not just on our mats, the better and happier our bodies will be.
Pam is thankful to have an amazingly supportive husband and two boys who help keep her on her yogic path.
Pam Udell is one of the Northshores most experienced, professional, authentic, knowledgable kind, compassionate yoga teachers. Her classes and guidance are filled with incredible anatomy lessons and options that work for each individual student. She researches, plans and shares info in each and every class. She is always studying and learning in an effort to truly make her classes one of a kind. Authenticity is hard to find in the Northshore yoga world and Pam is amongst the most "real" gals I have ever met. Her classes always leave a room full of blissed out very happy people. She is a true gift to yoga and to all her students. Strongly suggest seeking her out!
Pam is one of the, if not THE, most knowledgeable yoga instructors in all of Chicagoland. Her dedication to her profession is obvious when taking one of her classes. Whether you're new to yoga or have been practicing for years, you will love your time spent with Pam! You will definitely leave feeling better than when you arrived. Guaranteed.
I love going to Pam Udell. I started with her years ago and continue to go a couple of times a week. She is extremely knowledgeable, always with an emphasis on proper alignment. She loves what she does and it comes through in her classes. She also plays great music. Definitely try a class, you won't be sorry, you'll be hooked.
Unbelievable. I learned so much from her that I called friends when I got home and told them a few of the tips she gave me! So much information. She is open and kind and so full of knowledge- and watching her move so fluidly to illustrate everything was simply a gift. It was a beautiful, inspiring, rejuvenating class. She also told me what temperature to look for (warm not hot, 88 max) and what type of classes to take until I can handle hot yoga and multiple classes. (I have issues. Like... I'm old and creaky.) More tweaks and tips than I learned in my last year of practicing. Really intuitive cues. In short, she is amazing on multiple levels. Everything made more sense to me by the time I left, almost 2 hours later. There really is a reason for everything. Wherever she is teaching, Go. Just go.
