Mission Statement
After 18 years of teaching yoga and 14 years of both owning a studio in NY while certifying teachers, Owner, Amy Pearce-Hayden found it imperative to create a system that looked at each individual as a whole to create the opportunity and the best conditions for healing. Her new midwest studio, TANTRA wellness & yoga is the home for this work. "In both group and private practice, connecting the subtle (emotional/mental) and gross (physical/neurological) aspects of the self is our way to find a greater connection to the WHOLE self, the spiritual. We do this through the use of systems including asana (yoga postures), the chakras (energy centers), svadhyaya (self-reflective practice) and meditation, to name a few. The approach is holistic and healing in nature. The space created for this work is integral to its efficacy, and therefore we ask everyone to treat it as sacred in order to experience as such."

History Of Practice
Amy’s formal study of yoga began in 1995 with Iyengar Master, Gabriel Halpern. While working toward her BFA at DePaul University’s Conservatory Professional Theatre School (Chicago), yoga was included in their curriculum and her deeper studies continued. After relocating to NYC in 1997, she received her first yoga certification and went on to open her own school in 2003 where she continues to direct both 200 & 500 hour Yoga Alliance recognized teacher training programs, in her RajaHatha lineage. As a recognized International Yoga teacher, she is sought out for her expertise in linking classical yoga with modern living. She has been a regular contributor to Yoga International Magazine, as both a cover model and creator of on-line yoga classes for them. She specializes in addiction, trauma therapy, and whole-family living. Her teaching and lifestyle is compassionate, practical, and personally authentic.

Personal Statement
I believe the greatest spiritual work is to actually deeply immerse ourselves into the life we have. Not the life we've had, the one we might be moving toward, or the one that isn't ours. This isn't to say that dreams, goals, and desires should be discarded, but instead brought into our life as it is today. With this perspective we can understand that reality dances with desire and creativity dances with skill. Holding this perspective is still my my spiritual practice more than a decade later. I continue on the path that began two decades ago of Self-exploration and understanding. Little by little my practice and awareness deepens. As a mentor to students and yoga teachers alike it is my mission to bring the wisdom of the ancient practices to daily living to induce change, healing and joy.
