Amy Perri, B.A., eRYT500, Reiki Master
Practicing for nearly 20 years, Amy began with pre-natal yoga while expecting her first son in 1996. The transformational quality, along with yoga’s ability to cultivate self-acceptance, gratitude and compassion, led Amy down the path of teaching in order to share the amazing life-changing qualities with others. After completing her 200 Hour Teacher Training with Into This World Yoga Productions on Long Island in 2007, she became eager to expand her knowledge. Combining her love of vinyasa yoga with a strong desire to dive deeper into yoga’s spiritual teachings, she was drawn to continue her studies with Rolf Gates, (Master Yoga Teacher and acclaimed Author of “Meditations from the Mat”). Amy completed Rolf’s 500 Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in 2010 from which she graduated as a Yoga Alliance Certified 500 Hour ERYT. As a practicing Reiki Master, Amy offers healings and classes that combine essential oils, sound therapy and yoga to bring her unique talents together promoting as sense well being to all.
Amy enjoys teaching adults and children, bringing yoga to the developmentally disabled and presenting workshops in area studios. She also takes great pride in using yoga as a fundraising tool to support local charities. She is a member of the Long Island Yoga Assn as well as the Asperger’s Syndrome & High Functioning Autism Assn for which she facilitates a parent support group on the fourth Monday of each month at the local North Shore Youth Council.
Her most love of musical chanting has taken her harmonium and musical friends on the road, providing music & chanting for asana classes and Kirtan. “Chanting is a spiritual practice that quiets the mind, engages the body and channels “Shakti”, universal energy from the deep seat of the soul straight to the heart” Click on the Video Link to hear us chanting!!
