Amy Prais, RYT: Class Instructors

Amy Prais, yoga, physical therapy, dekalb, IL

My name is Amy Prais, I have been practicing yoga since 2006.  In May of 2014 I graduated from Yoga Gyan Jyoti Center for Yoga and Ayurveda with a 200 hour yoga teacher certification. Since then I have continued my education, and in September of 2015 I graduated from Amala School of Prenatal Yoga with an 85 hour prenatal yoga teacher certification. I also teach Postpartum Yoga. I completed iRest Yoga Nidra level I training   in November of 2016. I recently achieved my 500-hour teacher certification (RYT-500). I am registered with Yoga Alliance.

I encourage personal body awareness and emphasize working at your own pace to maximize individual growth.  I strive for a warm, approachable teaching style, and with over 1,000 hours of teaching experience I excel at giving clear instructions for the beginner, safe modifications for those with limitations, and options for advancement for those seeking a challenge. My classes are varied in focus with a wide variety of postures.  We will work on strength, flexibility, balance, and core awareness, while fostering a sense of calm through breath and mindfulness.

Amy currently teaches Yoga-All Levels Monday evenings 5:15-6:30pm; Yoga-All levels Wednesday evenings 5:45-6:45pm, and Prenatal Yoga Saturday mornings 8:00-9:15 as well as iRest Yoga Nidra guided meditation and Postpartum Yoga.
