Amy Raphael has been a Yoga teacher for the Middle School’s Personal Fitness Program at Abington Friends since 2013. She has been practicing yoga since 1999 and teaching it since 2011.
A Yoga Alliance certified instructor with an English degree from Wittenberg University, Amy teaches at various schools in the greater Philadelphia area, as well as running classes for adults and children through her own business, ‘Amy’s Yoga for Life.’
Why Amy coaches at AFS: “I love that AFS gives their middle school students an opportunity to explore yoga. Middle school can be a tough time for kids and finding ways of helping their growing and changing bodies to feel more comfortable is so important. It is also one of the only places I work where the kids ask for meditation.”
