Dusty encourages her students to slow down and search within; teaches them to open up space inside their bodies and gently reminds them to always simply breathe.
Dusty believes that all of life is practice and reminds her students of this on the mat each and every class. She pumps her fist in the air every time she reads these words by Steven Pressfield, “Once we turn pro, we’re like sharks who have tasted blood, or renunciants who have glimpsed the face of God. For us, there is no finish line. No bell ends the bout. Life is the pursuit. Life is the hunt. When our hearts burst…then we’ll go out, and no sooner.”
You can find her practicing handstands every chance she gets, teaching what she learns in her yoga classes, laughing really hard, pleading with the muse to shine inspiration on her writings and sharing gritty realism with her closest companions.
As a dedicated practioner, Amy aims to balance effort and ease in her own practice, and brings this into her teaching style, encouraging students to find a sense of playfulness and ease in their lives. You can expect lots of laughter, smiles and even some silliness in class- playing and exploring is a big part of her practice and teaching style. Yoga makes Amy SMILE and SHINE bigger than she ever imagined, and she encourages her students to find their inner shine and take it out into the world.
