Yoga means union, to join, to connect.... Awareness. is the key to wake us up to who we really are, and what life is really about.. Everything we do in our daily lives can be YOGA - if it is done with awareness.
We believe in the importance of individualized attention during the yoga experience. Our class size is small by design. Our System focuses on the individuality of people, their relationship to yoga, and their learning styles. By keeping the classes small, we can ensure an optimal learning / teaching experience.

I become interested in yoga about one year ago. I was going through a real rough time in my life, and I wanted to focus on a me. I enrolled in the YTT program not looking to teach yoga, but wanting to learn more about the art and history of yoga, and how it could help me with some emotional turmoil I was experiencing in my divorce. This YTT was a big commitment - but one that I will never regret doing. I have learned things about yoga I will never forget. It has helped me realize who I am. I have found a new understanding and plan on this journey. I highly recommend this to anyone who went's to continue learning the art of yoga and the art of themselves. - Deb
I was coming just to learn yoga postures, but it is so much more. I am learning alot about myself and my emotions. I am learning how to tune into my inner knowledge as well. I am also noticing how people use yoga in their life. I even caught a glimpse of an actor doing a headstand before performing in a Disney Show....and now I know why!" ~ C. W.
This Yoga Teacher Training Course open your mind and soul. A great Journey to take" ~ Sue
When I first started yoga, I felt there was no way I was going to be able to do a lot of the poses. With working with Amy, she took the time to explain the poses, how to keep my body in alignment and made it fun. I also felt very comfortable in her classes. I didn't feel like I had to have matching outfits and be so perfect with what I do. After a few years, I have come a long way and with completing the YTT program, I got so much more out of it than I ever expected. I found the program helped me de-stress my life and let go of feelings I would just push to the side. Thank you so much Amy for all the help and guidance you have offered me on my continuing yoga journey!" - Jen
"We are really getting a thorough explanation of the yoga postures and the mechanics of each pose. More thorough than any other class/ teacher I have experienced. The training is helping me gain confidence to instruct other people correctly (in yoga postures). We are learning how important alignment is and techniques to assist students. And the philosophy is just amazing! " ~ Sherry
Letter from the Director:
As we have always said, Yoga is for everyone. It is an invitation to explore. Its about feeling better and the dynamics among attention (awareness), breath, posture, thought, emotion, and their relationship to deep change. People will come out of a yoga class with a sense of calm & well-being.
A lot of what we know in regards to alignment and breath, never came from a weekly yoga class... It comes from many different Training Programs that we attended. If you want to learn what we know, in a private setting, focusing on YOU, then we invite you to apply to this Self Awareness. You will expand your awareness, experience transformation, settled into your Being, and in the process, receive a 200 hour certification to teach yoga, ( if you choose the teaching path). You do not need to be experienced in yoga. You just need to have an open mind.. that's all. We only accept a limited amount students to keep the training highly individualized.
I had no intention of teaching yoga when I enrolled in a program. I was living in Lewes, and had a weekly yoga practice with an awesome teacher, who I will be forever grateful for, as he changed my life! I started to "bump" into a deeper level of my physical and energetic bodies. Yoga helped me reverse a few health issues that I was experiencing, and I was like: "holy moly! there is something to this thing called yoga!" Due to this profound experience and my new "awareness" of me, I enrolled in a Yoga Teacher Training Program. But not to be a teacher, I just wanted to learn / absorb more. So, I invite you to reflect on how you feel in, and after, a class - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually....
Remember, yoga is a scientific approach to body, mind, breath and soul, and ultimately a higher consciousness. It is both practical and theoretical. It is not trying to teach any particular religion, nor it is trying to tell you what to do, or what not to do... It teaches you self -awareness, self -acceptance, self - love and how to just BE... As You continually Open, and express Gratitude daily, your Awareness expands - that's Y.O.G.A.
If you want to expand on how you feel in and after a class, if you want to take charge of your health and well-being, AND discover your TRUE Self along the way, then consider joining our YTT / Self Awareness Program! Contact me with any questions!
