KIND WORDS

"Amy’s yoga classes are among the very best.  Her warmth, compassion and grounding presence set the tone for class, her significant knowledge and wisdom the basis of her teaching.  Her classes are constructed in a way that can suit whatever level you are at, or mindset you bring to class.  Her sequences seem designed to spur discovery.  After 10 years of class with her I continue to learn and deepen my practice.  I am drawn back each week to the community she creates, the wisdom she shares and by the personal discoveries I make each day in her class. " - Lyle, Jan 2020

 

"Amy is a gifted healer with a wide foundation of knowledge, wisdom, and lived experience with health, wellness, nutrition, yoga, and beyond.  I participated in her Elimination Diet, and in only a few short weeks, her gentle guidance and support helped me to transform my diet, which has resulted in better physical symptoms and more ease and joy in how I relate to food.  Amy has a deeply grounding earthy energy that is exactly the medicine I needed and I will definitely be referring more clients to her." - Elizabeth Gutierrez, MD, Nov 2018

 

“Working with Amy has been amazing.  Through our sessions together I’ve come to understand that yoga is not about doing a pose in a particular way, but rather about adapting the practice to my body so I get the most out of each pose. I’m not very flexible, and yoga has been very uncomfortable before for me, but Amy has created a totally different and positive experience for me that’s really benefiting my body." - Tracy McCarthy, MD, March 2018

 

"I am so grateful for the help and guidance you've given me. In the past few months I have learned more than I hoped for in regards to caring for my body, and feel a new sense of confidence and purpose where before there was a lot of frustration and uncertainty. This is invaluable for me! Thank you so, so much for what you do.” - Magy, March 2017

"I suffered from migraines for 25 years until I did an elimination diet under Amy's guidance and discovered a whole new way of eating. I have had only 2 migraines in 3 years. As a midwife, I believe that one of the most important predictors of a healthy baby and an uncomplicated birth is good nutrition, it is the thing I spend the most time on during prenatal visits. Amy is the first person I refer people to for issues related to nutrition. She is incredibly knowledgeable, evidenced based, compassionate, and non-judgmental." - Djina Ariel, CNM, Feb 2017

"Amy's approach is gentle and open-minded, and that made all the difference for me. There are so many sources, opinions, and trends concerning food that one is often left with skepticism. Amy seems to have plenty of experience with food sensitivities and gives great advice without ruling out any food in the future. This cleanse is not very difficult to follow, and can result in great information about food sensitivities." - Kai, Feb 2017

"I have learned so much about myself having Amy as my yoga instructor. Under her instruction I have been able to accomplish the unexpected and to accept and embrace my own physical (and mental) limitations. She has taught me to breathe. I can’t recommend her enough." - Angela White, Jan 2012

"I'm fortunate enough to have had Amy as a yoga instructor at my workplace in Davis. I've practiced yoga off & on for about 8 years (okay, more off than on), but Amy's instruction has really given me a lot more enthusiasm for my practice. I've learned more from her than from any of the other yoga instructors/studios I've been to in town - she's got a strong understanding of anatomy, which is really helpful in adjusting poses or focusing practices to accommodate injuries or other physical limitations. But more importantly for me, Amy obviously takes a lot of enjoyment in teaching, and her classes are infused with humor. She also seems to be a good instructor for new or returning yoga students, based on the interactions I've seen in classes." - Tray Biasiolli, Sept 2011

"Amy is a wonderful resource for personalized nutrition information. She is flexible and sincerely invested in her client's success in leading a healthy and fulfilling life through activity and a diet that works for them. She is incredibly knowledgeable in many disciplines and schools of thought within nutrition. She can speak to a practical, yet holistic approach to overall health. Despite moving out of town, Amy has still kept in contact and made sure that I am doing well in my transition. She is fantastic, full of wonderful information, and I happily have recommended her to many of my friends!" - K. Collins, Sept 2011
