[Live Streamed] Learn, Grow & Inquiry Series: Power of Meditation with Amy M. Jarvis
Feb 22, 2021| Free
Our LEARN, GROW & INQUIRY Series, The Power of Meditation places you in control.
It’s tough being home right now. I know many of us are craving ways to find balance and maybe some sanity.
Through experience and teaching the tools of yoga for over 12 years I have come to understand the importance of explaining the why and how the tools of yoga affect our daily lifestyle. Regardless if you do yoga today or not the same human conditions exist. Understanding the history weaving ancient texts with today’s science empowers your ability to take that control.
Our five-day free online series, The Power of Meditation gives you the foundational tools to create balance.
Schedule: February 22nd – 26th, 2021
About the instructor: Amy M. Jarvis
I fell in love with yoga as a way to introduce calm and contentment into my life after leading an active youth as a nationally ranked figure skater, repeat marathon runner, and successful professional in corporate construction management. Since 1995, I have been deepening my own practice of self-discovery through the principles of yoga: Asana (gentle movement), Pranayama (breath control), and Nidra (guided meditation). As I mastered this fine study of movement in my own journey, I began to feel passionate about guiding others in the healing power of yoga to benefit their bodies and minds on and off the mat.
In 2007, I received my 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher Certification and started a business called, ENLIVENhere. As I collaborated with my clients to adapt the tools of yoga to meet their health goals, I began to recognize a gap between yoga and healthcare. Often my clients had acute health needs that I intuited could be addressed through the art of yoga. So, I pursued and completed my Yoga Therapist Certification in 2013 accredited by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, allowing me to bridge ancient yoga practice with contemporary healthcare modalities such as physical therapy, chiropractic practice, and sports medicine.
My unique method of tailoring each class to the specific needs of the attendees has been held in such high regard, that I have been asked by other passionate yogis to pass on my wisdom through a teacher training program. In 2017, I earned my credential as a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) and just two years later ENLIVENhere became an Accredited/Registered Yoga School (RYS). I’m so proud to have graduated my first class in 2020 and look forward to sharing my knowledge with others hoping to teach the healing powers of yoga.
When not teaching, Amy loves spending time with her 11-year-old son and husband in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley in Washington.
