​​Amy Pastore

Amy’s Yoga story began after years studying fitness and martial Arts. She stepped into her 1st yoga class at the gym looking for a good stretch and found that it wasn’t exactly love at first down dog. It wasn’t until she became more familiar with the asana and began to use her breath that she began to experience how profound the practice of yoga could be. “When I started linking the movement with the breath, the practice became magical. I had an aha moment and it quickly became apparent that this practice was much bigger than anything I had done in the gym. I was learning how to pause and flow, cultivating an awareness and concentration that would not only serve me on my mat but gave me the tools to act in my life off the mat in a way that was life affirming.”


Amy traded in her boxing gloves for a yoga mat, her gym membership for class packages at her favorite Yoga Studio, Yoga Synthesis and found her first and most influential teacher Raji Thron. Amy’s teaching draws from her many influences. Amy generously shares with her students what has been valuable and what has worked for her from her vast experience. Her most important message to her students, “This practice is a metaphor for life, the mat is a mirror. Each time we come to the mat, it’s an opportunity to learn something about ourselves. Everything we learn on the mat we can take and apply to life.”
