A dedicated Ashtanga practitioner for many years, she is equally captivated by the precision of the Iyengar system. These two traditions inform her teaching, creating a dynamic and rigorous blend of intelligently sequenced and aligned Vinyasa Flow.

This workshop will focus on the shoulder girdle and surrounding areas. Through Amy's fluid, strong class we will work with the body's natural movement to find the balance between stability and mobility. Rediscover "basic poses" like plank and down dog and work on more advanced postures like wheel and handstand. Energetically the shoulders encompass the 4th (heart) and 5th (throat)chakras. These chakras deal with love, communication, and authenticity. Finding balance in these areas can open us up to so many new possibilities.

So much of our day is spent at desks, in cars, in front of computers or TV. All this time spent sitting can lead to a sore or stiff back. Yoga, done with proper alignment, has the power to relieve minor back pain and stiffness.
This workshop will encompass a gentle practice of standing and seated poses. Nikki will give alignment instructions and hands on adjustment demonstrations to guide you through a series of therapeutic yoga postures that will increase circulation, ease pressure, relieve tightness and improve your posture.
This workshop is for those who feel discomfort in their backs during yoga practice, for yoga instructors who have students with back pain or for those just interested in improving their posture!

It takes courage to move into a place we can’t see!
This workshop will systematically educate you about the key actions of
backbends and progressively prepare you for Urdhva Dhanurasana and dropping back from Tadasana using the principles of Anusara Yoga.
We will also explore the the yogic teachings about the malas (limitations of consciousness) which provide an explanation of how and why we allow ourselves to lose the deep connection with our own heart and the hearts of others.
Using backbends as a point of focus, the class examines how wisdom and courage can help us to feel more connected. For experienced practitioners
