Ame Wren

I am a dedicated student of both the Iyengar and Ashtanga lineages. Throughout my years as a student I have developed a penchant for mixing methods and classify myself proudly as a “yoga mutt.” My aim as a teacher is to be a conduit for the wisdom of yoga and offer my students an environment in which they can study themselves.  I am indebted to my teachers--- Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor--- for continuing to light my path. I am also deeply thankful for Patricia Walden and Carrie Owerko. My ongoing study informs everything I do and I hope to always remain a curious student and humble teacher.

I am also a writer and academic. In addition to teaching yoga, I moonlight as a Philosophy & Religion professor. I have been featured at TEDx, in Yoga Journal and was awarded the honor of “Best of Boston.” My greatest passion project is directing Boston Yoga School, which has become my community, my passion and my ongoing quest to spread yoga near and far. 

In 2012 I taught the very first class at JPCY. It has remained my home and I am deeply grateful to Daniel, Sejal and the community for giving me space to grow and stretch as a teacher.
