Thank you for stopping by my website.  Some call me “Amysita” or “Love Muffin”, but Amy is just fine too. I’ve been a yogini since I was 16, I’m an earth advocate, a wanna-be cyclist, animal lover and I love to stand up paddle board.  My purpose is to help you turn up your volume through modern integrated yoga teachings, community, and increased awareness.
