B.K.S. Iyengar wrote that health “is a state of complete equilibrium of body, mind and spirit.” With this intention, Amy bases her free-spirited classes on an Ashtanga-based, Vinyasa-style of yoga that is inspired by the teachings of Patthabhi Jois and alignment principles of B.K.S Iyengar. Understanding the importance of integrating all aspects of oneself to achieve true wellness, Amy’s classes are dynamic and comprehensive: Harmonium playing, chanting, meditation, and pranayama are all seamlessly incorporated, and woven with thoughtful passages from the Sutras and Bhagavad Gita, poems and affirmations. The result: A rich and invigorating class designed to endure long after the student leaves the studio.
But what is most compelling about Amy is her warmth and sincerity. With a near-tangible appetite for self-study and a gentle sense of humor, Amy immediately makes those around her feel welcomed, valued, and inspired to action. She is as accessible to her students as are her classes. This fosters a safe and encouraging environment where students are moved to approach their individual practices with a light-hearted and self-accepting point of view.
