Amy’s Wild Idea: To impact the world though yoga and activism. 

Amy has the dream job of a traveling around the world as a yoga teacher, which she started doing in the 1980s. She has a different take on yoga than many. It’s not just about working out and breathing. The practice of yoga also has ties to activism, which is why Amy does things like take her yoga to the oceans to raise awareness for the environment and animal conservation. 

Amy is a faculty member at the Omega Institute, Esalen, and Kripalu, and a regular presenter at Yoga Journal Conferences, Asia Yoga Conference, Wanderlust Festivals, and more. She’s also a prAna ambassador, which is how I was lucky to meet her. 

Listen to this episode if: 

  • You practice yoga or want to get more involved in yoga.
  • You want to live a healthy lifestyle physically and mentally.
  • You’re an activist.
  • You want to help save our planet.

    The thing I really like about this conversation is how Amy brought politics and why she did. I’m really new to yoga, I only have class twice a week at my local gym, but from what I understand yoga helps you balance your life, and to control certain aspects, like how you handle things. Politics isn’t something we all agree with but it’s something that will never change, we will always have disagreements except for how we treat others. I hope what I said makes sense, I’m not very articulate. Thanks Shelby!!
