Paige is a very talented teacher who really nourishes her students. She shares so much of her knowledge during (and before or after if you're interested) class. She's warm, engaged, funny, and real.

Cultivated my yoga interest

The first time I met Paige was not in a yoga studio but as a recruiter helping me fix my career (which she did). She invited me to her yoga classes at Budda B. Who knew a yoga teacher could wear high heels....in hindsight she made yoga accessible to me by connecting my interests. I took her Saturday morning classes consistently for a couple years. I'm so glad and thankful I did. She fostered my interest and curiosity. Fun music. Detailed, yet not overly so, to really get the most out of your practice. She safely takes you to your edge...whatever that edge may be. For me, some days that's savansa!

Thank you!

Thank you Amy. I remember when we met that you were in a cross-roads in your career and I recall inviting you to yoga and that the answers would come. Just look at you now! Now years later taking Yoga TT. I'm so glad to know you and be a small part of your amazing journey.

Being happy with myself

Paige is a wonderful teacher she very good at explaining why you do the poses this way and what they do for you and the body. She puts you in a very relaxed state and you do more releasing in the poses but not with effort but ease and breath. I am learning to be where I am and not compare with others in class and just be happy with where I am in the poses.

An Amazing Teacher

I've practiced with Paige for the last two years in larger and smaller group classes. Paige has extensive experience in a variety of yoga practices and incorporates all this knowledge into the thoughtful way in which she teaches. She has a very positive way of urging her students to improve and expand their practice. I feel that my range and flexibility have grown under Paige's compassionate tutelage. Whether in a large studio or a small one it feels like Paige is teaching directly to you.

Great teacher!

Paige really cares about your learning how to do the poses. She carefully explains how to do each one, instead of just calling out the pose names like many teachers do.
