Local spirit, global vibes

Dreamed of on a river bank in Belize, breathed to life in Chicago.

Transformed by the simplicity, intentionality, and adaptability of a consistent yoga practice, inspired by solo international travel, and committed to living a freedom journey to inspire ongoing liberation of self and community,

Kelli Wefenstette founded Wildlight in 2018.

Wildlight is a community of wild hearts and wanderers moving fearlessly toward lives of freedom and adventure.

PRACTICE MAKES PURPOSE

Jivanmukti means "liberation while alive."

At Wildlight, we believe ...

We believe that every person on this planet deserves freedom while they're living and that the transformative, lifelong practice of yoga is the journey toward that liberation.

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline that follows an 8-Limbed pathway incorporating abstentions, observances, postures, breathing, sense-withdrawal, concentration, meditation, and ultimately, consciousness, unity, and bliss. An intentional, yogic practice integrates the physical, energetic, emotional, mental, and spiritual layers of the self and restores balance of the elements of nature within us to experience wholeness.

We encourage authenticity in all its forms and the radical celebration of all people with their diverse experiences, stories, and needs. So we seek to offer yogic instruction that is safe, accessible, inclusive, and welcoming for anyone who wants to practice regardless of their abilities or pre-conceived notions because, as Dr. MLK Jr. preached, "nobody is free until we are all free."

Yoga is freedom and the journey toward collective liberation is an adventure.

As a solo female-owned business, Wildlight believes in sustainable community investment, the importance of partnership for social change, the dignity and rights of workers, and in bold advocacy for those experiencing oppression and marginalization in any form.

Wildlight is committed to donating a minimum of 1% of annual revenue to organizations or initiatives that embody these values.
