About Amy

“And the day came when the risk to
remain tight in a bud was more painful
than the risk it took to blossom.”
 
                                   -Anaïs Nin

Amy’s mid-life crisis came a bit early in life, only 41, and having what appeared to be everything; however silently she was spiraling down the rabbit hole. Her growing ache of emptiness was becoming more then she could bear. A pain that was silent, and known by many. She no longer could keep the appearance of having, looking good on the outside, but emptiness inside. This became exhausting. Her descent continued and became unbearable with little opportunity to recover. So far down the rabbit hole of depression, she no longer had the energy to shift the wave that would soon swallow her whole. However, Grace had her all along.

One day, she rallied and went for a walk to talk with her constant companion (goddess/god/source higher then herself) and made a declaration. I can not live the next 40 years of my life the way I have lived my first 40, please help me to find my place in service, move through my sadness and may I be reminded that I am not separate from you. Within a matter of a week, she was lead through a series of coincidences and encountered her first Yoga experience. The following day she made the hour drive to take another class. That evening, after taking her second class she wrote her own teaching schedule. Amy sold her commercial business within 4 months to pursue the Path of feeling, unraveling, laughing, crying , exploring, being and not being, doing and undoing...more crying, embracing, rejecting and shedding the old, good days and bad days, habits, ease and unease and came to know the loving path called YOGA. Today Amy offer’s The Path of Practice as a way of being. She share's her offerings from a place of experience and personal journey. As life offers "It is all the Path, and it is all a Practice". She is an avid reader of text and material to support awakening and raising her own level of consciousness to facilitate change. Amy has taken her Vows in the tradition of Mahayana Buddhism.


If you should find yourself adrift and searching the horizon for somewhere to land, consider investing time with someone who will listen to you with her eyes, ears, heart and mind. When thoughts lack focus, ideas molten, plans simultaneously going forward and backward, your mind and body out of synch, the loop in your head unending. There is someone on this earth near and available who will not tell you what or how but instead will slowly turn the light on in a dark room. You will barely see any movement or hear any sound but you can look into her eyes as clear as water and know you are have chosen the right guide up and out. You will not find someone else’s arms wrapped around you but discover your own. Spend a little or a lot of time with Amy Figoli and you will have spent it wisely without regret.
