Amy has been practicing yoga since 2006 and completed her 500 RYT training at Yoga North in Duluth in 2011. Amy brings to her teaching knowledge of somatics, therapeutic and classical yoga as well as an appreciation for the opportunity yoga gives you to learn and understand yourself. She is passionate about the biomechanical movements of the body and strives to encourage each student to understand the importance of listening to their own bodies in practice. Her philosophy on yoga practice is to move steady and easy, commit to a regular practice and let go of any attachment to the outcome. All you need to do is understand, trust and honor your body and let your yoga practice evolve without forcing it. This is the way to finding balance, vitality, radiance and grace in your practice and eventually daily life.
“My advice to any yoga student is to approach their practice with awareness and enthusiasm versus ambition and desire. Experience yoga, do not just do yoga. Eventually you come to trust the wisdom that grows out of that experience and your entire life will change. You learn to trust yourself.” – Amy Jendro
Amy has been living in the Brainerd Lakes Area since 2001 and lives with her husband, Matt Jendro, and their two furry feline children, Kiko and Zeke. As a project leader at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, she is an advocate of the environment and strives to leave the world a better place for our generations to come.
