This book fell on my lap just when I needed it most. And, like a guiding light, it continues to provide insight through my life’s transitions and challenges. Simply put, I have found it to be one of those gifts that keep on giving …and never leaves my nightstand for very long!!

As Thich Nhat Hanh tells us, “the best thing we can offer another person is our presence.” It would be my privilege to be your guide as we explore together the many teachings this gem has to offer (think, “book share on a bolster”:)). Afterwards, we will seal our time together with an all-levels gentle yoga class. Reading the book is optional (although I have a feeling that if you haven’t already, you will walk away wanting to!!)

Amy Yapp
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.
