Ami Lawless- Founder and Still Finding

Ami is a musician, DJ/radio personality, columnist & reviewer for Short Fast & Loud music magazine, world traveler, animal whisperer, Harley rider, photographer, vinyl fanatic and has two books in the works. 

Ami came to Yoga late in life in her 40’s to enhance her health and spirit. Ami had been taking private pilates for a few years and then moved to yoga to branch out. When living in San Francisco Ami often took classes at Yoga To The People, Yoga Punx SF with Khristine Jones and Urban Flow with Adam & Rusty Wells. At this time her wife became a certified yogini. This only helped to influence Ami into doing more yoga; SHAZAM. Ami has practiced with the above teachers as well as an epic yoga session at the Asian Art Museum with Stephanie Snyder, a week long yoga retreat to Xinalani Mexico with Khristine Jones & Martin Scott of Union Yoga and many of the talented teachers that are a true squad here at Burning Spirits Yoga in PDX. Ami is not a certified yoga instructor, just a fan! info@burningspiritsyoga.com
