The instructors practice is extremely powerful.
So much energy and healing"
"I have a desk job where I’m tied to my computer screen, and best describe myself as a high strung, type A personality. Despite regular strength and cardio training, I found myself getting stiffer and less flexible so, in January of 2021, at age 59, I decided to try yoga at Transform with Amy Bourque. At that point I had only tried yoga once or twice in my entire life. I was immediately impressed with Amy. She’s so knowledgeable and passionate about her craft, compassionate, approachable, and a gifted teacher. I’m equally impressed by her amazing team of instructors and I love the variety of classes Transform offers. Amy and her team produce an environment at Transform that is truly warm and welcoming, non-judgmental, non-competitive and conducive to self-discovery and learning.
Ive followed Amy’s advice to practice yoga regularly. It was, and is, challenging and downright difficult at times, but practicing yoga at Transform has improved so many aspects of my life, in ways I never expected. Within a few weeks, I noticed my breathing markedly improved (I have Asthma). Next, it was improved posture and sleep. Then, I noticed I was handling stress better at work, and at home. I am so much calmer, and as a result, my overall mental and emotional well-being have improved. I’ve also made some noticeable gains In my flexibility and balance, and in my ability to “let-go,” so that I can productively work on increasing my flexibility without fighting myself. None of these gains would have been possible without Amy and her team of instructors’ teaching and guidance. I cherish my ability to attend classes and practice yoga at Transform. I feel fantastic after each class, and I wholeheartedly recommend Transform at Amy Bourque Yoga."
"A yoga studio is a place where everyone should feel comfortable, supported, and safe. This studio reaches beyond that and encompasses so much more. At Transform, students actually transform within the vessels of mind, body, and soul. If you are looking to begin a yoga practice or develop an existing one, this studio will not only enhance your practice, it may just change how you live and see the world around you. 🙏"
YOGA TEACHER TRAINING TESTIMONIALS:
"Attending transform 200 hour yoga teacher training with Amy was such a great experience. Amy shared so much knowledge of her own, and also had many guest teachers come in and share. I loved learning the history of yoga, along with the postures, different types of breath work, and so much more pertaining to the eight limbs of yoga. Focus was on alignment and form and feel not what the asana looks like. Adaptions and modifications were given so the practice was accessible to every body and skill level. I felt safe and supported in the space. This training not only transformed my yoga practice and my skills as a yoga teacher but it was personally such a transformative experience as well. So thankful for this training and looking forward to more. " -- Sara
"Taking the yoga teacher training program with Amy at Transform is one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. A few months prior to Amy announcing her program, I started to feel a pull towards teaching and had been looking into different programs and courses to learn how to teach and to deepen my personal practice. I was so excited when Amy shared the news about her training and knew it was a sign that this was the one! Although I knew I wanted to take the teacher training, I was initially a bit hesitant because I had a few injuries and limitations that I was worried would limit my ability to fully participate. Amy assured me that teaching is not only about the poses, and no limitation would get in the way of me practicing or teaching. Not only was she right, but I feel my injury helped me learn the importance of offering options and modifications and teaching in a way that is inclusive to all abilities. This training has also helped me fine tune my personal practice in a supportive way which allows me to fully let go and experience all the amazing benefits that yoga offers. I also loved that we touched on so many other subjects that tie in with yoga; learning about anatomy, sutras, breath work, modifications, and everything in between. I love how the program covered so much, allowing me to take what interests me and explore it more. It’s still surreal to me that I am a yoga teacher. I literally started teaching classes the day after graduation! This program not only taught me how to teach a yoga class with confidence, but it has connected me to the truest part of myself. I am so grateful that I took this training and for Amy for creating it. She truly is an amazing person and teacher and I am so appreciative of the experience I had with her and the beautiful women in my class. "
"I absolutely loved my Yoga Teacher Training! I would recommend to anyone thinking of taking a training, to go here. It taught me so much and was interesting at the same time. My teacher was always there to answer questions or offer help when needed. She truly taught from the heart. Also, the community at this studio was so supportive of all of us trainees. I am so glad I signed up for this training!"
