Curiosity and the search for something solid is what led Amie Rader to yoga, but only after years of building up the confidence to walk into her first class. Like all great things in Amie's life, yoga wasn't instant love, but rather a conscious commitment (and a hefty dose of tenacity) following repeated injuries after many years of running and high intensity exercise.
Amie's curiosity and willingness to think outside the yoga pose make her a great teacher. She specializes in making those new to yoga feel comfortable, and is great at explaining the "whys" of everything from the breathing to the postures. Although the physical practice is what led Amie to yoga, it was the philosophy that made her stay; she tries to impart a little nugget of yogic wisdom into each and every class, leaving you with something to mentally digest after class.
True to her Gemini sign, Amie is both outgoing and introverted, silly and serious, chatty and quiet. Her fascination with everything has led Amie to a Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts and a Master's degree in Exercise Science, and she has completed two 200 hour level trainings and will complete her RYT-500 level certification in 2017.
In addition to being a yoga teacher, Amie loves to write. Read her thoughts on her website amierader.com where she details the struggle of living your yoga in the real world. She is passionate about showing others that perfection and toe touching isn't needed to be a yoga practitioner, just a willingness to get and stay uncomfortable, which is where true growth happens.
