Several years ago Amy started taking yoga classes, hoping to relieve pain. After suffering a from both a back and knee injury and living in chronic pain, she knew
something had to change. Yoga had been a suggestion from many friends and family, so she decided to give it a go. Almost immediateley she fell in love with the practice and began to reap the benefits. It was obvious that that the yoga was working, she was feeling less pain and was noticing other side benefits, such as stress management and learning to be present in life. After witnessing Yoga’s positive effects on her own life and well being, she decided it was essential to share this knowledge with as many people as possible. Giving them a vehicle for change and the opportunity to deal with both physical and mental ailments. Her goal is to show others that they too, are able to facilitate this kind of change in their own lives through the practice of Yoga.
Under the watchful eye of Shane Perkins, Kate Moll and Sarasvati Young Amy completed her 200hr Yoga Alliance approved training at Yandara Yoga Instutute in beautiful Baja Mexico. For the past few years Amy has been fortunate enough to work with Eileen Millar at Eileen’s Yoga Studio in Abbotsford. Where she has been able to develop her teaching style and glean knowledge and practices from Eileen, who is a master in her own right. Her practice and teaching is heavily based in Iyengar Yoga, but counts teachers such as Kathryn Budig, Jason Crandell, Marla Apt, Amy Ippoliti and Tiffany Cruikshank as major influences in both style and practice. Amy describes her teaching style as alignment based hatha and teaches classes to all levels.
