Amy King Amy King is a licensed Clinical Social Worker turned teacher of Yoga who has spent the last two decades immersed in self-discovery and helping others on their healing journeys. She is a dedicated practitioner, studying yoga and meditation for close to a decade both in the US and India where in 2013-14 she lived for over one year, studying, practicing, and observing the world through a different lens. Originally from New York, she holds a teaching certification in "Radiant Body Yoga" (200 RBY), a wholistic approach deeply rooted in both Hatha and Ancient Kundalini & Tantra traditions, from internationally renowed yogini and teacher, Kia Miller. Amy is passionate about each person stepping into their personal power, and has experienced first hand the profound transformational effects of having a devoted yoga practice both on and off the mat. She embraces the precept that when you transform yourself, the world around you transforms. Her style draws from multiple yogic disciplines, and is both intuitive and steeped in the traditional aspects of yoga. Amy whole-heartily shares her integrated approach of breathwork, movement, physical postures (asanas), meditation, sound, and sacred teachings designed to help each practitioner enhance the flow of energy in their body, calm the mind, and tap into their true power.
Julie Emmons Julie is the co-owner of Open Studio Yoga. She was drawn to yoga for its quality as a moving meditation. Julie has been practicing since 1998 and began formal studies in 2000. Primarily trained in Ashtanga, Julie's focus grew when she began practicing at The Samarya Center in Seattle, Washington, a non-profit center for Ashtanga yoga and Integrated Movement Therapy. Moved by the understanding of her teachers, Molly Lannon Kenny and Stephanie Sisson, that yoga is available to all individuals "regardless of preconceived barriers," Julie chose to complete her 200-hour teaching certification with them in 2008. Julie teaches according to Krishnamacharya's statement that "if you can breath, you can practice yoga".
