||Amity started practicing yoga almost six years ago. A week after graduating from Brown University with a degree in public health, she walked into a studio, bought a mat and a 12-class pass, and never looked back. She completed her 200-hour teacher training at yogapower in the fall of 2011. Amity is a PhD student and researcher at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. She studies the integration of mental health care and general health care, which informs her teaching of power yoga classes that increase the strength and flexibility of the body and the mind.
