Episode 31 is yet another powerful treat for this Thanksgiving week of gratitude. I have such respect for the women like this episode's featured Goddess Amy Wheeler, who has come into this tribe and my inner circle of inspiring sisters. 

Dr. Amy Wheeler is is a Doctor of Education and Psychology and a mentor for many in the yoga therapy and academic world for several years. Her resume on living this life as a goddess of service is impressive. Like me, Amy studied extensively in the more classical application of yoga for deep inner transformation and teaches from a practice of spirituality and science.  Traveling to India many times, she has solid roots in the T. Krishnamacharya Tradition which helps her blend her western scientific studies of understanding the mind's influence with the eastern medicine traditions. 

In this episode we discuss: 

  • How her work in Psychology has been evolving to combine the yoga with the science, especially in being an evolved woman.
  • Amy's take on how her personal story as it has evolved from conformity to freedom
  • The more classical pieces of living the yoga off the mat that give her a new perspective on mixing the energies of the masculine and feminine divine. 
  • How she has been growing more and more into course creation and freedom with approaching life. 
  • Her present contributions as the Founder & Director of Optimal State of Living™, which provides Yoga & Yoga Therapy Training Programs teaching yoga as a lifestyle and healing practice for private and group clients and what she is developing in her own online classes for trauma awareness and women's health studies. 

In our #GoddessChat it is very clear Professor Wheeler pulls from her experiences over the last 25 years as a Yoga Teacher & Sport Psychology Consultant to many health professionals & elite-level athletes, including the Los Angeles Lakers, various Professional Athletic Teams and five U.S. Olympic/National Teams.  

Where to Find Her

Amy has been a Professor of Kinesiology at California State University, San Bernardino Since 1998 and our talk in rich in the roots of her own research studies in the fields of Yoga, Yoga Therapy, health and Psychology. 

In addition to being on the board of the International Association of Yoga Therapists where our worlds collide, her wisdom has helped to set the curriculum standards for Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy for the National Ayurvedic Medical Association. Being so involved in the Shakti vibe and western healthcare solutions, Amy is one integrative goddess Fire I feel thankful for the ability to connect with this past year.  I am grateful to hold space for her now as a sister friend in our Guru Goddess Tribe and I know there will be more wisdom shares from her in our future.
