Amy, E-RYT, YACEP
Amy is a Registered ERYT through the Yoga Alliance and is the Owner and Director of YogaLove. In addition to her original 200-hour certification from YL, Amy has fulfilled multiple 100-hour advanced teacher trainings giving her a diverse background within many yoga lineages. Her educational background is in the biological sciences and that theme is threaded throughout her classes. She would describe her classes as part science class, part yoga class, and part comedy show–topped with a ton a LOVE. Amy is deep believer that asana is just the beginning of the journey and her heart is dedicated to helping others be brave in finding their authentic voice and some tiny liberations in their days. Amy teaches soulful and energetic classes in deep Honor of the Divine. She encourages her students to play, explore, and be BRAVE both on and off the mat. Besides being a yogini, Amy is a Reiki healer and the proudest mommy around (Austin is by far her favorite Karma). Photo by Joelongophotography.com.
Angela Quinn, 500 HR ERYT, came to the practice of yoga as a way to heal and recover from life as a competitive athlete. As a runner, Angela used yoga as a secret weapon to recover faster and improve flexibility and agility. However, over time, running pursuits became less important, and she yearned to learn more about the comprehensive yogic path. In 2011, she traveled to India to study Traditional Hatha Yoga in the Sivanada lineage, and after five years of practicing and sharing, she returned to India in early 2016 to study in the Ashtanga Vinyasa method. With five years of experience teaching yoga asana, pranayama and meditation, Angela infuses all of these practices into her own unique class offerings. As a former classroom teacher, she is able to convey the teachings and wisdom of the yogic journey concisely and passionately. Sharing the gift of yoga, and teaching students of all ages and abilities has become paramount in Angela’s life, and she is continuously honored and humbled by her teachers and students. She is beyond grateful to share the gift of yoga and the wisdom of her teachers with the local community.
Amanda is a Board Certified Massage Therapist, a
Reiki Practitioner, a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor, a Thai Bodywork Therapist, and an MMA Fighter. “Being a RYT merges well with my avid promotion of functional movement– in addition to my passion for learning and sharing as much as possible about holistic health. Since beginning to practice yoga at the age of 18, I have developed a keen understanding of my physical limits and love to help others develop their own mind-body awareness. In the beginning stages of my yoga journey I enjoyed a vigorous, flowing power practice to strengthen my mind, body, and spirit. As my physical activities grew, I gravitated toward more relaxing, restorative poses to bring me back into balance. It is my hope to provide an atmosphere at YogaLove that will allow students to safely explore going beyond what they are currently capable of while discovering the many benefits of regular asana practice.”
Carrie, E-RYT, RPYT
Carrie began consistently practicing yoga in 2010 with the hopes of creating a more balanced life. During that time, she was starting a new career while fumbling her way through the early years of motherhood. Yoga gave her a way to navigate her life by orienting all the moving parts around her practice and providing some much-needed stability. She completed her 200-hour certification at YogaLove and continued her training with additional certifications in prenatal and restorative yoga. Carrie considers herself a householder (a yoga practitioner grounded in the responsibilities of marriage, home and family) and weaves her practice around her roles of partner, provider and caretaker. As a teacher, Carrie seeks to hold space for students to dig deep into their own practices and discover ways yoga can serve them in their lives.
Jamie began practicing yoga consistently in 2013 to help manage the stress of college and soon noticed that she was experiencing healing on a much deeper level. Yoga has helped her to cultivate self-love, find previously unimaginable relief from chronic depression and anxiety, and has connected her to a more spiritual, meaningful way of living. Because of the amazing things yoga has done for her, Jamie felt called to help others on their way to mental, physical, and spiritual well-being; so, she became a Registered Yoga Teacher through the Yoga Alliance as a part of YogaLove’s 2016-2017 Teacher Training and Immersion class. She is so grateful for the opportunity to hold space for others as they find peace and freedom at her very favorite place in the world alongside her own beloved teachers.
Julia is an experienced yoga teacher who has been practicing for 24 years. Over the scope of her teaching career that began in 2009 she has taught thousands of students of all levels and led 5 teacher trainings. Her teachings have evolved just as her personal practice has, and the Master Teacher Training program (ParaYoga) that she is studying in with Yogarupa Rod Stryker currently inspires her. Julia began her yoga trainings in India with Tribe Yoga and continued her studies with Sadie Nardini and Andrew Appello. Julia’s passion is to share the traditional practices of Tantric Yoga and implement them in this modern world.
