Amy Oestreich

I was born and raised in the Midwest; but my lust for wander guided me through 50 states and decorated my passport with numerous stamps. I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Recreation and Tourism. Always drawn to places of beauty and outdoor adventures, I found work with the National Park Service, National Forest Service and Department of Natural Resources. As miles passed under my feet I welcomed yoga into my life to ground my soul and nurture my body.

Now, at this phase in my life, I find myself drawn to the shores of Lake Superior and the healing powers of this land. I love to share my connection with nature and the opportunity for personal growth through yoga and a healthy lifestyle.

Amy is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher-training program with a Registered Yoga School (RYS). She attended the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification Course by Marianne Wells Yoga School in 2015. She specializes in Hatha – Iyengar Yoga with an emphasis on postural alignment and sport specific poses.
