Teachers

Our family of teachers have a diverse background of study and practice.

All are highly skilled teachers as well as continuous students. Be Moved Studio respects and appreciates traditional lineages and teachings.

Our teachers strive to teach from integrity and it is important that our teachers love the practice they teach and are not appropriating but teaching with full appreciation of the tradition.

They teach authentically in their own teaching style while keeping with the heart of the practice.

Amie first found a love for yoga as a teenager. She has practiced on and off for years and eventually ended up in a San Francisco studying for her doctorate in psychology. After working with many populations, and knowing the gifts and wisdom yoga had brought into her life, she decided to write her dissertation creating her own specific yoga therapy. After many small yoga workshops and trainings, Amie studied under Baba Hari Das, receiving her 200 hour certification in Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga in 2008. She continued working on her dissertation, education, and work as a therapist. In 2010, with a M.A. in Clinical Psychology and after exploring both the east and west coast, Amie decided to return to her roots and work with clients through her experience as a yoga teacher and therapist. Amie’s love of being a student and yoga studies has her traveling to take workshops as well as taking workshops in the area while becoming adept in Restorative, Yin, Pre/Postnatal Yoga, and Child/Family Yoga and studying Ayurveda more in depth. In 2015 Amie completed her 500 hr YTT with Gopi Sandal in Bhakti Yoga, based on Iyengar Asana. She loves working with people of all ages and abilities, but helping people feel better is where her passion for teaching yoga lies. She loves seeing how yoga changes lives. After severely breaking her arm, Amie was given the opportunity to dive even deeper into Yoga and its power to heal and balance health. Teaching private yoga has given her the opportunity to dive deeper in with her yoga teachings. Amie designs all her sessions for the people/person present and incorporate different styles of yoga, self massage, and myofascial release.
