amycombo

A woman of the world, Michigan raised Amy DiLillo’s journey to Massachusetts came by way of Texas and the exotic countries of Japan, Singapore and Thailand.

Amy’s journey with yoga began 20 years ago.  Teaching for over 15 years, Amy loves how yoga quietly shifts mood, posture, breath and the energy of her students and herself.  Her favorite pose is Eagle because it makes her feel grounded, yet ready to take flight.

IMG_2054cleansmallAfter many years of dedication to her yoga, Amy will achieve a substantial milestone this February when she completes her RYT 500.  This education provides significant insight into the therapeutic yoga Amy delivers in class.  Amy is drawn to energy practices and that might not be a coincidence.  Her grandfather was a Michigan farmer and practicing water diviner (aka: water witch!)  Using a fresh Y shaped branch clasped in his hands, Amy’s hands on the branch under his, they would walk the family acreage looking for the right spot to dig a well.   She recalls feeling the branch gently vibrate and tilt down toward the earth revealing water lines deep within. He told her she had the “power”!

Amy lives in Cohasset with her husband Tom, their 16-year old son Dimitri and two fabulous felines.  G a feral feline who was born under their house in TX has moved with them to MI and now MA.  Siam, a well-fed feline rescue cat appeared on their MI doorstep and has not missed a meal since.IMG_3451bssmall

In her spare time Amy loves to walk (or snow shoe) at the many gorgeous beaches and parks in the area.  In addition to being a yoga teacher, she is corporate cross-cultural trainer who works with either American executives about to live abroad or foreigners moving to the US.  Passionate about many things, Amy strives to support LGBT Equality, Civil and Women’s Rights.  “It’s all yoga, really…, she says.  “it’s about being present and uniting.”

Amy can be found teaching 8 am Yin Yoga on Mondays and Fridays. Thursday Evenings @6:15 for Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra. She is often also offering workshops using essential oils as well as Restorative and Nidra workshops.

The 5 Ways to Beome an Ageless Wonder

dec16postcardfrontsmall

December is upon us and we are about to bid farewell to another year.  As 2017 looms ahead, know that being a year older does not mean you have to feel like it!

Science has proven that what we eat, what we do and how we live has a dramatic impact on how long we get to enjoy this earth.  In his book “The Blue Zones” author Dan Buettner revealed 9 Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who’ve Lived the Longest.  Not surprisingly, eating well was on the list, but so too were natural movement, living with purpose and social interaction.  These elements are inherent in yoga and central to yogic philosophy.

When it comes to staving off aging YOGA is the proverbial FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.  Whether you are building a career, nurturing a family or enjoying retirement, practicing yoga at your age and as you age is essential to ongoing health and longevity.

Here are 5 ways YOGA helps you to be an AGELESS WONDER.

FLEXIBILITY
Yoga increases FLEXIBILITY, reducing the aches, pains and stiffness associated with aging and it maintains space between vertebrae so the spine stays long and straight as you age.

STRENGTH
The weight bearing poses of a regular yoga practice build STRENGTH in every muscle and increase bone density without stressing cartilage and joints common in high impact exercise.

BREATHING
Yoga BREATHING increases lung capacity so you feel more energetic, and deeper breathing leads to lower blood pressure and improved digestion, a common ailment in aging adults.

BALANCE
Statistics show that 1 out of every 3 adults over 50 will fracture a bone in a fall.  Yoga improves BALANCE by strengthening stabilizing muscles and synchronizing communication in the brain.

BODY AWARENESS
Critical to aging gracefully, the mindful movements of yoga heighten BODY AWARENESS so you notice when you slouch or if you are under stress which is a leading cause of heart attacks.
