Amy VDA

I am a specially trained 500RYT yoga instructor using and teaching yoga to help clients heal their bodies and minds. Specializing in restorative practices and yoga therapeutics I coach clients how to strengthen & heal from overuse, underuse, and injury. As a grieving mother I also specialize in trauma, loss and grief recovery and support.

I am a passionate and knowledgeable coach, teacher and guide. I lead group and private classes, workshops and retreats. I am an avid student of both my lineages and yoga philosophy. With a. deep connection to the spiritual aspect of yoga I teach with strong undertones of the true science of yoga, not just the asanas. I teach from a place of desire to help students achieve their own personal goals. It each from a perspective of healing and empowerment, with an emphasis on yoga therapeutics.
