Based in Boston, Ame began her yoga practice about twelve years ago. Throughout those years she has remained a dedicated student of Iyengar and Vinyasa yoga and studies regularly with Patricia Walden and Natasha Rizopolous. Her practice has taken different shapes, but has always been heavily influenced by intentional structure and alignment. When Ame began teaching, combining precision with fluidity and creativity inspired her. She sought out senior teachers who were doing this and discovered Kula Yoga Project in NYC. Under the tutelage of Schuyler Grant, David Regelin and Nikki Costello, Ame's practice and teaching shifted. She began to ask herself what her teaching was giving her students, and how she could create a fuller and more introspective experience. Ame works to present intelligent flow that combines the sweat of astanga, the wisdom of iyengar and the freedom of vinyasa. Her aim as a teacher is to educate and guide while cultivating quiet space for my students.
Ame has been a featured teacher in Yoga Journal and was awarded the honor of “Best of Boston” in 2010. She travels extensively leading retreats, teacher trainings and workshops all over the world and is the founder of Boston Yoga School.
