“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. After each training session, somehow I have a renewed sense of inspiration to continue to my healing work - especially for myself! Thank you Amy for your guidance and love!”
May C., Orange County, CA
“This training was life changing for me. I have been a student of yoga for 12 years: trained at the 500 YA level; at Loyola Marymount in the Yoga RX program; and with several nationally recognized yoga teachers. The training that Dr. Amy Wheeler provided was more comprehensive than anything I have encountered. The information was presented in a concise and easily digestible format so that students were able to apply what they learned to their daily lives instantly. It was amazingly beneficial to me personally and to my family (in my role as a wife and mother). I am eternally grateful to this amazing teacher who has spent countless hours to make the teachings of Sri T. Krishnamacharya accessible to us here in the United States. If you are ready for a life changing experience, to really understand who you are and what your purpose (dharma) is, this is the training you’ve been waiting for.”
Michelle A., Inland Empire, CA
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 in such a way that I can comprehend the material, which has been a challenge for me in the past.. I have enjoyed every class I have ever taken with her and always come away from her classes wiser for the experience. I'm so fortunate to be able to call her my teacher!

“Amy has a gift of explaining the yoga sutras in a way that makes them understandable and applicable to today’s lifestyle. Her teaching style is clear and inspiring. I feel honored to have studied with her.”

“My first encounter with Amy was during a Yoga Therapy class where she was lecturing on the endocrine system. She shared a migraine asana/pranayama practice which proved to be lifesaving for my husband who had been plagued with migraines all his life. Using an Ayurvedic diet regime and Amy’s practice, my husband is now migraine free. I knew then that I was destined to study with Amy Wheeler. Thank you!”

“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. From Amy's training, I developed a new holistic approach with my clients and a variety of tools that can be tailored to any ailment. I highly recommend any workshop, training, or private session that you can attend with Amy Wheeler. You will be grateful you studied with her!”
Ashley M., Long Beach
‘Amy Wheeler delivers reliable methods to her students, as well as her clients because she has done such comprehensive study at the KYM Institute in India, where it all began and continues. Her students feel honored to be in her presence. She lacks any kind of need for ego gratification. She has the rare ability to create an environment where her students are not only able to participate and learn but to come into a space where they understand fully that they are an equal part of a whole and beautiful system called life.
Kat T., Orange County, CA
“I have been fortunate to participate in the internship program with Amy based on our Krishnamacharya lineage. I cannot begin to describe how valuable the training was for my own personal development as well as for my work as a Yoga therapist. Amy did not just convey a strong knowledge in the subject but her interpersonal skills with the client as well as with us Yoga therapists made the experience extraordinarily enriching. I'm looking forward to have further opportunities to attend other classes and programs she is teaching in the future.”
Katlen E., Thousand Oaks, CA
"I first met Amy at a Yoga Therapy Training at LMU in Los Angeles. She is still a part of that program and is one of the most brilliant individuals who lectures and teaches there. I decided to follow Amy to her own training in Redlands CA where I did a 500hr Healing Yoga certification. Amy is an expert in all areas regarding this lineage (T. Krishnamacharya). She is incredibly eloquent and her courses are comprehensive and individualized for each group. Her kindness and humility make learning a real pleasure and she creates an environment for learning and personal transformation.
I would recommend Amy's trainings if you are interested in learning about classical yoga, yoga therapy and if you are interested in personal transformation. I am eternally grateful for all the teachings and guidance that Amy has shared with me."
Jorge L., Los Angeles
"Amy was one of my most influential teachers in the Yoga Rx program at LMU. I had the opportunity to mentor with her and she taught me many therapeutic yoga techniques using actual Case Studies from the KYM. This was an amazing experience as it helped me take the leap from student to practitioner with confidence and grace. Amy taught me the importance of making a heart connection with my clients and I believe this is why my Yoga Therapy practice is so successful to this day. Amy is patient, kind and knowledgeable and I highly recommend her to anyone seeking advanced studies in Yoga."
Meg L., Milwaukee, WI
“Amy Wheeler is truly an exceptional yoga therapy instructor and mentor. She blends her kinesiology background with extensive training from Krishnamacharya's teachings for an integrative approach. She looks at each person as a whole (all the levels of the pancamaya model) and applies knowledge of anatomy, physiology, human movement, psychology, yoga sutras, Ayurvedic principles, and so much more. Amy teaches the depth and breadth of yoga from the depths of her own heart with integrity and a strong humbleness. She has my utmost respect and admiration, as well as gratitude in having her for my mentor.”
Lorelie E., Malibu CA
"I was in a 4 year Yoga Therapy Training with Amy and got to know her very well. Amy lives what she teaches, she is knowledgeable, confident, and has no fear in taking a leadership role. She has a passion for helping others with no judgment. Her kindness and lovely disposition makes you feel safe to open up to her. Amy not only understands the body, mind, & emotion connections but has a keen intuitive sense that makes her an excellent teacher/therapist; also her education and research background allows her to stay in touch with the ever changing world."
Libby L., New Orleans
“Thank you for putting together such an inspiring training, it was wonderful to learn these teachings in such an intimate format. It makes me so sad to think of this experience ending. You are such an astounding teacher, I feel so incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from you.”
Missy F., Hollywood
I have had the opportunity to do some advanced Yoga therapy training with Amy Wheeler. Her depth of knowledge, her vast practical experience working with clients, and her formidable skills as both a teacher and a healer have made my time studying with her an invaluable part of my education. But more than that, Amy embodies the best of what Yoga has to offer—and while I consider her a rich source of information and insight, she is also a powerful inspiration, compelling me to bring the healing and nurturing powers of Yoga to my own clients, family and friends.
Don H., Torrance, CA
After spending many years coming and going to the KYM in India, Dr. Wheeler has created an in-depth and thorough four part training that remains true to the teachings of T. Krishnamacharya. Each module contains both the challenge and the solutions to awaken in any teacher both confidence and humility. When mired in the challenges, one is continually reassured by her expertise and levity. As one progresses from Asana to Meditation, one refines one's own practice and the power of the sutras is illuminated.
As I move forward in my practice and work, I feel confident in the tools and solutions I now have from this curriculum. I am daily grateful for Amy's ongoing support and enthusiasm and would highly recommend this training for any teacher or practitioner.
Colleen C., Topanga, CA
"Studying yoga therapy with Amy Wheeler is a transformative experience. Over the past six months, I've come away with not only a wealth of knowledge gained from a diverse range of case studies, but a sense of confidence to offer yoga therapy to my students mindfully and effectively. Her teachings and experience provide the training I needed to address a variety of issues including physical ailments such as neck and low back pain as well as mental health issues including anxiety and depression".

"Having just finished a year of Clinical/Case Studies with Dr. Amy Wheeler has been one of the most profound clarifications in my yoga therapy studies. The scope of her knowledge and insight into the human being and her sensitivity in how and what tools in yoga therapy could be applied to help each individual, was truly a wonderful learning experience. Thank You, Amy."

“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.”
“Yoga with Amy has helped to improve my life in many ways. My eating habits have changed drastically. I feel better about myself and I am enjoying life. Even my body is in better shape and my clothes are fitting more comfortably.”
“Yoga has improved the free weight portion of my training. I am now able to adjust and hold the barbell with better control. As a result my power and explosiveness have improved and I am moving with better form and technique.”
“I began the quarter hobbling to class 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!”
“Amy has made me more aware of how my body works. I am also more aware of what muscles I use throughout the day. I have learned which muscles I carry tension in. I am also aware of my breathing patterns throughout the day. I recognize when I hold my breath or breathe only in my chest.”
“Not only has yoga been great for relieving stress, but also before taking yoga I constantly suffered from migraine headaches and back pain. After several weeks of practicing yoga, I have noticed that I rarely get any headaches and my back almost never hurts anymore. I am positive that yoga is responsible for alleviating my pains. I have also noticed great improvement in my posture and flexibility.”
