Honeybees are amazing creatures. From the way their bodies defy physics (big bodies, small wings) to the way they work with one another to keep their colonies thriving.
As a child, Amy grew up next door to her grandparents. Her grandfather was a beekeeper and taught her not to fear the bees but instead appreciate the lessons that they had to teach. A seed was planted that would blossom into a life-long desire to help people grow, the way bees help flowers grow.
In 1996, Amy left a 12-hour a week martial arts practice bruised and injured. Still longing for movement and the spiritual component that martial arts had offered, she was fortunate to stumble upon a Kripalu yoga practice. After the injuries had healed the seed had been planted and there was no going back to martial arts.
By 2001 Amy had received her first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification in Hatha yoga. Since then, she has continued to learn and grow by taking trainings in meditation, brushing up on anatomy, and studying the sutras, philosophy, and the Gita. A highlight of her continued growth was learning the Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment directly from the Dalai Lama when he visited Stabler Arena in 2008. Amy has also received additional Teacher Certificates in Restorative Yoga, Children’s Yoga, and an additional 200-Hour Teacher Certification from the Himalayan Institute. Amy will achieve her Yin Yoga Teacher certificate by December 2019 and will be 500-hour certified by 2020. Amy is also Level II Reiki attuned.
Amy’s love of the philosophy of yoga comes through in each of her classes. She has studied with teachers from lineages such as Kripalu, Kundalini, Iyengar, Himalayan Institute, and Svaroopa and takes with her the gifts each of these traditions has to offer. Amy’s hope is to facilitating a safe space for inner reflection and awareness of your own empowerment to become the optimal you!
