Amy Lee Flower has a multifaceted approach to creating unique yoga and meditation programs that help children, teens, women, & families. In 2015, she became a trauma-informed Kripalu Yoga and Mindfulness teacher. She is the founder of Shanti Students, a program that brings yoga, meditation, and mindfulness into 30+ schools throughout the country.

She has taught these skills to over 30,000 students, educators, and families throughout the country. Amy Lee has led practices for over 500 NYC principals & administrators. Her passion for this work is deeply felt by those around her. She has had great success supporting the education system.

During the pandemic, she co-founded Mindful Minute — a platform offering free one-minute meditations for effective transformation. Amy Lee is very passionate about the process of self-discovery through self-love and mindfulness practices. She empowers her students to trust the process of life, to learn how to experience the beauty of every moment that arises and how to allow the light within to shine brighter. She has created and led over 20,000+ hours of mindfulness programs, workshops, assemblies, after-school programs, and transformational self-love retreats.

Amy began exploring the practice of yoga and meditation at the age of 14. She was given a mindfulness DVD for her birthday and the trajectory of her life changed forever. From her mindfulness practice, there was an awakening of her heart. Shortly after she began her practice, she and others noticed a significant difference in her mental, physical, and emotional health. Amy Lee began practicing these skills as a freshman in high school and by senior year she had won the most transformed superlative.

When Amy Lee chose to become a teacher of this great work, her intention was to bring these transformative practices to the masses. She is known for her vibrant outlook on life, illuminating wisdom, and her very happy, grateful heart. Amy is continuously studying and learning, creating new workshops and classes to connect with both adults and children. She has taken extensive research-focused mindfulness training, including working with Bessel van der Kolk, author and researcher of “The Body Keeps the Score.” Amy Lee is passionate about understanding the science behind the skills that she has practiced for almost 2 decades. She now works with Robin, the leading mental health wellness and SEL mindfulness company helping the education system, as their coach ambassador.

Being present with her students fuels her inspiration, and seeing their growth through the practices, individually and as a whole, is the greatest gift of all. Amy is passionate about living a prosperous life using the tools of yoga, meditation, breath-work, journaling, self-reflection, inner-child loving, movement, painting, writing poetry, and practicing self-care. She is mindfully connected to each passing moment of the day. Amy always remembers to stop and smell the flowers and smile at the sun. She looks forward to the opportunity to share the golden gifts of mindfulness, meditation, and self-nourishment to all.

Amy Lee Flower loves holding retreats at the Himalayan Institute and is deeply grateful for the opportunity to create spaces for others to have profound experiences at the Himalayan Institute working with Moka Origins.
