“Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts actually sculpts the brain. Solidly grounded in the latest neuroscientific research, and supported by a deep understanding of contemplative practice, this book is accessible, compelling, and profound – a crystallization of practical wisdom!”
– Philip David Zelazo, Ph.D., University of Minnesota

“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.” – Anna Quindlen

Just like yoga, a good book is always better when shared with a group.

Book Club Meets the Mat combines the fun and connection of a book club community with the healing nature of a yoga class. Amy invites you to “pull up a bolster” to discuss our quarterly book of choice and stay for a rejuvenating yoga practice that will settle your mind and nourish your body. This workshop is a wonderful opportunity to deepen your yoga practice and perhaps meet a new friend!

When Amy first tried a yoga class as a busy, young elementary school teacher many years ago, she decided it “wasn’t for her”. Ten years later and recovering from some serious health challenges, she decided to give “that yoga thing” another try. It was that second class after a decade hiatus that profoundly changed her life. She walked away standing taller, breathing better and knowing she had found something integral to her future. A born teacher, Amy couldn’t help sharing what she had experienced with others and began teaching yoga in 2003. Amy is honored and grateful to have completed her 200 hour teacher training with Shawn Shaw, Johnny Gillespie and Diana Hoscheit of Empowered Yoga . Always focusing on healing and prevention, Amy’s teaching has a strong foundation built upon core work, alignment-based poses and tension relieving breath work to restore and empower her students at their own pace. She believes in challenging herself and those around her, but is committed to listening to the body and making sure every class has a healthy dose of fun. Delight and connection are at the heart of every class.
