Meet Your Teacher
A Washington native, Amy began teaching yoga after moving and finding herself jobless and lost. She's taught from San Francisco to Seattle to New Jersey and everywhere in between. She loves teaching yoga because it creates a connection (yes, even over a screen!)
Amy believes yoga is a tool we can use to develop continual discovery and wonder about our bodies. What can you discover about your body or yourself? What can you uncover that you didn't know was there before or even possible? How can you shift and adapt your practice to fit your life RIGHT NOW? She's a big believer that our bodies are our biggest source of wisdom, and yoga provides a way in.
Amy completed her 200hr certification in 2014 and is now an E-RYT 500. She has over 2,000 hours of teaching experience, and has assisted or lead multiple teacher trainings.

As part of this training, you will be learning how to teach Yin Yoga.
Yin training will be given virtually by Brandy Berlin, of Namaspa Yoga on Sunday, March 13th from 8am-6pm.
Yin is one of the fastest growing styles of yoga and helps tone connective tissue, ligaments and tendons which are critical to our physical well-being and range of motion. Postures are practiced on the floor and each is held for 3-5 or more minutes. As a result, the body is energized, encouraging a free flow of chi/prana—the “life force” of the body that often gets blocked or stagnant.
IN THIS YIN TRAINING YOU WILL:
Learn about what Yin Yoga is, why to practice it, and how it works both physically and energetically
Establish a safe practice using compression and tension
Gain a basic understanding of energy/prana/chi and the meridians and connective tissues
Explore Yin Yoga poses using a functional versus an aesthetic approach
Learn to teach Yin classes using the Baptiste methodology including: pose sequencing, leading poses, transitions, counterposes, shaping the energetic container of a class
Practice Yin Yoga, practice teach and receive specific, concrete feedback to inform your future teaching
Receive a training manual what covers the content as well as additional resources
