Amy’s recovery from depression began more than twenty years ago on her Yoga mat. Joy continues to unfold through the compassionate self-awareness that is the foundation of her Yoga practice. Her daily personal practice includes iRest, and she has long been inspired by the nondual teachings offered by Richard Miller. Since her association with the Center of Timeless Being, "welcoming all that arises" has become a way of life. She considers it an honor to be in community with the wise and compassionate beings who serve on the Council of Stewards. She is happy to witness the transformative effect of iRest Yoga Nidra in her own life and in the lives of her students.
