Emily Wheeler

Emily Wheeler
Emily is a teacher and student of Raja Ashtanga Yoga. This royal (Raja) path has eight limbs, including postures, breath, focus, and meditation. For Emily, yoga offers a comprehensive way of life whose center is calm. Her practice integrates body, mind, and spirit through breathwork and vinyasa flow. Off the mat, Emily is drawn to the outdoors and taking pictures. She likes the way photography, like yoga, helps her to be present and to pay attention.

Amy Yapp

Amy first discovered the healing nature of yoga in 2002 while searching for something to help with a long list of persistent and confusing health challenges. Knowing she had found something very special, she could not help but share what she was learning with others and fell in love with teaching students of all ages who share her love of healing the body from the inside out.

Amy holds an undergraduate degree in Education and a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Boston College. She completed her 200-hour teacher training with Johnny Gillespie of Empowered Yoga and is currently finishing up her 3-year certification program in Yoga Therapy with Susi Hately of Functional Synergy. Amy is certified in both Reiki and myofascial release.

Amy is passionate about helping people find their own unique path to wellness. Always focused on healing and prevention, she empowers her students to go at their own pace and listen to their own inner wisdom. Fun and connection are at the heart of every class!
