Growing up, I explored sports and other physical activities -- gymnastics, crew, karate, cheerleading, and water skiing. Yoga came naturally when I started taking a few classes back it in the 1980s. It wasn’t until I took a Jivamukti class in 2007 that I began to fully realize that yoga was meaningful beyond the physical level.
In Sanskrit “Amrita” means nectar of immortality, the name given to me in 2008, by my wonderful teacher Lisa Rapp when I completed the 200-RYT certification. Two years after that, I finished the 500-RYT with another exceptional yoga teacher, Ann Richardson.
Over the years, I have explored many forms of yoga such as Jivamukti, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara, Triyoga, and even Rocket Yoga. With every class that I take or teach, I try to balance strength with calm. The philosophical teachings of yoga also brings balance to all other aspects of my life, with family, friends and as a full-time sculptor.
