Hailing from the Northeast, Amy Young has practiced yoga since her early 20s, starting a regular practice in 2009 at The Ashram Yoga in Kirkland, WA. In 2014, she completed the Ashram Teaching Training (200 hour) and began leading classes. Additionally, she managed The Ashram Yoga studio from 2015-2019. She completed her 500 Hour Teacher Training with My Vinyasa Practice with Michelle Young in Austin, Texas. In 2020, She opened Hilltop Yoga in Woodinville Yoga where she works with private clients to apply the 8 Limbs in their daily lives. Amy has continued her education and in 2023 become a certified yoga therapist.
Since 2014, Amy has been teaching Yin Yoga, 26x2, and Power Vinyasa Flow. Her classes are light-hearted and effective with consistent postures and flow. Amy believes a daily practice of yoga keeps her mind, body and spirit balanced. What she does in the room gives her balance to take life’s challenges head on and is a reminder, no matter what, to just breathe.
Amy has been living a clean and sober lifestyle for 27 years. She continues to practice recovery on a daily basis and is adept at utilizing yoga to enhance 12-step Recovery.
Building and fostering strong communities is something Amy cares deeply about and is obvious from her time as an elementary school teacher and camp director, as well as her involvement in local non-profits such as My Village NW. Amy is passionate about advocating for people with disabilities by developing community partnerships. She served on the Board of a local non-profit for 15 years.
In addition to teaching yoga, she spends time with her husband and their two children, two dogs, gardening, skiing, biking and traveling.
