Wellness Consultations with Ami:
Certified Yoga Therapist & Ayurvedic Health Counselor
Yoga Therapy for Healing
Yoga is an ancient science that teaches us about our great potential and how to align with it, showing us how to relax, breathe, create balance in our lives and gracefully own our strength. When we feel good, we are able to offer more creativity and vitality to our work, our friends, family and community. When we are in pain most of our energy is taken up dealing with that pain and trying to feel better. Yoga Therapy teaches us how to come into alignment so that we can be healthier, happier, more energetic and embrace life fully. Ami brings her extensive training in yoga therapeutics to each session.

Ami receives regular referrals from Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Doctors and Mental Health Counselors.

Ami Jayaprada Hirschstein
“I have scoliosis, a sensitive nervous system and have been involved in numerous accidents, some that disabled me for years. I’ve tried all sorts of things and been to all kinds of physical therapists, traditional and non-traditional, and the most consistently useful and helpful thing I’ve done has been to work privately with Ami. Not only am I much more comfortable and functional, I also have a set of tools that I can use to help myself when I need it.” –K.M.
“Ami is a gifted healer and her approach is to help others learn how to take actions to improve their own health. In one Yoga Therapy session for my very painful hip bursitis, Ami taught me a series of yoga poses and stretches that to this day, several year later, continues to greatly minimize the pain and allow for greater range of motion. By following Ami’s Ayurvedic advice, I also found relief from long-standing digestive issues. I highly recommend her sessions!“ –C.C.
“My back surgery only reduced the frequency of my sciatic pain. At the recommendation of my physical therapist, I decided to give yoga a chance. My friends suggested Ami and they were right. I had some serious doubts about this, but I was proven wrong. Ami’s straightforward approach to daily stretching for only 15 minutes not only stopped my pain, but also gives me extra energy.” –K.W.
“When I met with Ami for my initial consultation, I was in rough shape - physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Ami listened attentively, asked astute questions, and held a space of non-judgment and compassion. She identified my doshas, explained their imbalances, and then suggested a series of concrete, therapeutic methods I could use to rebalance my doshas. I am happy to say that I feel better, more nourished, and very grounded. What you will find in Ami is a dedicated ayurvedic practitioner who is passionate about helping her clients regain and restore their energy and spirits. I am deeply blessed to have worked with her.” –S.
“Ami has helped me become more relaxed and spiritually grounded again after having gone through some stressful circumstances. She mapped out a series of yoga poses for my specific needs. Her attentive one on one instruction is facilitating ease of strength and flexibility to adjust my posture, control of breathing, and regain positive flow of energy. Now I can stand and breathe.” –R.M.
