About Amy

     Thanks for coming to Amy Toft Yoga! I’m a Wyoming girl, now living in Twin Falls, Idaho. An RYT® 500 and E-RYT® 200 yoga instructor, I am certified in:

  • restorative yoga

  • yin yoga

  • yoga nidra

  • ball therapy

  • Silver Sneakers yoga

  • Y12SR Leader -- Yoga for 12 Step Recovery

  • vinyasa

  • children's yoga

  • accessible yoga

  • chair yoga

  • hot yoga

  • trauma informed yoga

Phew! I have more than 1000 teaching hours and over 700 continuing education training hours. If you are a nerd like me, see all my training here. I started Amy Toft Yoga because I truly believe that yoga is for Everybody. Every. Body. Including those who are thinking, well, not me. It's for you! 

     My diverse yoga teachings reflect this motto – I do workshops, corporate, and private yoga events, including on Zoom. I've given Safe Space class for members of the LGBTQ+ community. I host pop-up yoga gatherings in unusual places. I lead classes with Twin Falls County Juvenile Probation as a volunteer. I also offer free one time sessions to church groups & book groups. I have taught at the Magic Valley Alternative High School. I find great satisfaction in teaching yoga to people recovering from drug or alcohol addiction. I also teach breathwork and meditation to yogis with health challenges or who are bedridden. I have a warm place in my heart for the yogi who doesn’t yet know he or she is a yogi.  If you think you are the wrong size, shape, age, gender, fitness level, or skin tone for yoga... you aren’t! 


     I teach vinyasa yoga , restorative, yoga for addiction recovery, children’s, slow flow, chair, silver sneakers, family, and beginning yoga. When I’m not teaching, I am the Director of Development for the Magic Valley Symphony. I also like to get strangers to take my picture wherever I am while doing a yoga pose. My other hobbies: I like to sing, hike, knit, and read!

Thanks for stopping by – I would love to do yoga with you soon!
