Learning from Amy is a student’s dream! Her calming presence and wealth of knowledge was incredibly inspiring, and I looked forward to each weekend when I could learn in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere. No question went unanswered, and my confidence grew dramatically at the end of each weekend.
Amy has made me more aware of how my body works. I have experienced terrible hot flashes for years. After learning with Amy, I am now aware of my breathing patterns throughout the day. I recognize when I hold my breath or breathe only in my chest. The new breathing techniques help me to reduce my stress levels throughout the day. It is amazing that my hot flashes have almost disappeared!
I practice the poses that we learned for PMS and so far they have actually helped. When I was first introduced to the poses I had no idea if they would actually work and to my surprise I felt 100% better! I have shared this with my friends because they experience similar problems.
I have suffered from Fibromyalgia for many years. I had been trying to heal myself through diet and exercise. Amy helped me to realize the deeper causes of my autoimmune disease. She was able to help me see the mental and emotional aspects so that I could move forward into a brand new life. Today I am back on track doing things I thought were never possible again. I am thrilled to have worked with Amy.
Working with Amy has helped to improve my life in many ways. My eating habits have changed drastically and now I have lost that extra 15 pounds that I could never lose before. I feel better about myself and I am enjoying life. My body is in better shape and my clothes are fitting more comfortably.
Over the years, I’ve completed countless certifications and workshops. There isn’t a shortage of brilliant minds to study from yet Amy Wheeler is truly special! Her approach is holistic, as the nature of yoga therapy suggests, and most notably her heart and intentions are genuine.
I came home on Saturday with a renewed sense of wonder and amazement, at what I had accomplished and where I am headed in the future. I am feeling so much better physically, mentally and emotionally. I will continue to do my exercises at home and continue to feed the birds and the squirrels as a loving-kindness meditation that I learned. And I am sure there will soon be a puppy/rescue dog in my life! I feel like living again after this experience.
I feel so lucky to have found such an amazing teacher who is so brilliant in the healing art of yoga therapy. Not only is she amazing in her skills of healing others but the way she relates her knowledge to her students is phenomenal. She is patient and kind in relating the vast wealth of knowledge she has of this 5000 year old practice. I have enjoyed every class I have ever taken with her and always come away from her classes wiser…
I began the year hobbling to class because of my SI Joint Pain and experiencing high levels of stress. Now I am in a better frame of mind and I am walking normal with a healthy stride. Thank you, Amy!
The work I have been doing with Amy has been great for relieving stress. I constantly suffered from migraine headaches and back pain. After several weeks of practicing following the lifestyle guidelines that Amy gave me I have noticed that I rarely get any headaches and my back almost never hurts anymore. I am positive that my work with Amy is the reason I have alleviated my pains. I have also noticed great improvement in my posture and flexibility.
