Welcome hOMe!

“Tell me, what do you really want?…”

Love. Acceptance. To feel better. More peace & calm. Less anxiety & stress.  Improved health…what else?

Yoga is to move with continuity in your CHOSEN direction.  So feel your heart, choose what you want, and stay focused on your desires.  There is elegant, easeful power in this, and it is as easy as breathing.  With sincere practice and friendship, clarity and the answers you seek arise from within!

What is the Truth?

You ARE a miracle!  There IS an unseen Source currently beating your heart, breathing your lungs, dividing your cells, growing your hair… all without your “trying” to make these things happen.

So relax.

Here’s how to begin:

Check out the tools below to explore, cultivate and support your Life.   It is possible to feel wonder-full, embody all you are capable of + offer your unique, important gifts to the world: a place that deserves your presence / presents!

Who is Amy Elizabeth Bankoff?

Amy is a Mother, Teacher, Entrepreneur + current Law Student offering personalized yoga + oils practices to support each individual’s circumstances.  Her commitment to be of service + develop harmonious relationships ~ WithIn+ WithOut ~ is communicated through the breadth of her life experiences.

Amy has taught yoga for 20 years, often citing the honourable Sri. T. Krishnmacharya who said,  ‘You don’t do yoga. Yoga does you!’

Amy has seen that when we Honor our Body, Breath + Relationships in daily practice, we know ourself intimately.  This daily action, brings Peace + Power beyond measure; in a way that only one can give to one’s self.

“You must be your own best friend,” Amy often says.

Focusing on softness + strength simultaneously, Amy designs personalized practices of Surrender, not as passivity but, as acknowledgement of what we each have carried to come this far, and what we allow ourselves to lay down and give over at the end of the day.

      • Trust Your Intuition + Heart’s Desires.
      • Learn to Accept + Relax where we often flee, fawn, faint + fight.
      • Stop Looking for any “other” + Start Living where you are.
      • Acknowledge the Perfection innate in this Moment: Now.
      • Bloom Where You Are Planted.

Amy hopes the wisdom of Yoga as she has received it from her Teachers can be offered as friendship, as a gift, as the radical empowerment +transformation she hopes humanity can realize is here for us right now.

“There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”~ Albert Einstein

With our understanding of these ancient technologies of the breath, body + every aspect of Nature, we participate in this exchange of friendship + mutuality with conscious relationship.

Amy is not interested in exaggerated techniques, new-age gymnastics or fancy sequences to entertain us.  Peace + Power are available to each of us as profound simplicity + unending complexity when we allow it ALL in.  Feel Peace + Truth in these opposites without any problems existing.

“I believe you have every right to be here and show the world how spectacular you are! In fact, I believe that is your most important purpose + responsibility,” Amy says.

“Please in-joy your Life as the beautiful, complex, unique creature you are + allow the Universe to love you. I believe it does, and when you receiving your awesomeness, and dare greatly to shine brightly, the world is ALL-WAYS a better place because of how truly divine you are!

Let’s do this, together.”
