About Amy

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

  • restorative yoga

  • yin yoga

  • yoga nidra

  • ball therapy

  • Silver Sneakers yoga

  • vinyasa

  • children's yoga

  • accessible yoga

  • chair yoga

  • hot yoga

  • trauma informed yoga

Phew! I have 300+ teaching hours and more than 500 hours 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! 

     I’m an independent contractor – I do workshops, corporate and private yoga events, including on Zoom. 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 and book groups. I host a Safe Space class for members of the LGBTQ+ community.  I have taught at the Magic Valley Alternative High School. 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, restorative, hot, children’s, slow flow, chair, silver sneakers, family, and beginning yoga. When I’m not teaching, I like to get strangers to take my picture wherever I am, while I’m doing a yoga pose. I also like to sing, hike, knit, and read.

 

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