Amy is a writer, wanderer, blogger, herbalist, Ashtangi, E-RYT 200/RYT 500 yoga instructor, and displaced Mainer living in the Midwest. She’s a sucker for mystery novels, hot chocolate, anything yoga, anything green, long winters, and wild weather. She is a teacher and a student and believes that, with enough practice, anything is (probably) possible.

Her study of yoga began when she was a wee thing, about twelve years ago. Herbalism came soon after, though her love of plants, she suspects, was born into her. Never being one blessed with physical grace or strength (or so she thought), she has found a kind of peace with her mind and body through the practice of yoga. 

This is her experience. This is what she does her best to teach–that this is not work. This is play.  (Interested in Amy’s teaching schedule? Find it here).

Look for her first book, scheduled for release in the spring of 2015 with Storey Publishing.


  About Quiet Earth Yoga: 

Quiet Earth Yoga, once a brick and mortar studio, but now a virtual community, was Amy’s long-lost-then-gratefully-found dream.

‘Deep peace of the quiet earth to you’ is part of an old Gaelic blessing which cycles through the elements of air, water, fire, and earth. Here, we draw on those same elements, harmoniously, to balance the separate parts of our nature and to heal and to empower ourselves.

You are your practice. You are responsible for your health & well-being. We just provide a little guidance and a place to be yourself. We believe that all yoga stems from the same root; it’s up to the individual to find which branch best supports her. It’s a wild, natural world out there and it’s filled with solutions and surprises.

Come journey with us.

Come as you are.

    I saw a post from this site on mindbodygreen.com and when I saw the name 'Quiet Earth Yoga' it had such a high vibration that I had to take a look. I've been an LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist) for a year now and named my own biz Quiet Jewel Wellness simply because true health and happiness is 'a treasure that whispers softly.' When the clients I work with are in need of a little more 'balance' this is one of the sites I will refer them. Thank you all for sharing your time & talents.

  7. Quietearthyoga what a beautiful name; it has the essence of space, the sound of a silent planet bowing to the stars, the slipstream of shadows fleeing from the sun. Shanti
