Edwin Amaya

School Wellness Project

Edwin began regularly practicing yoga and meditation in 2001 to supplement his marathon training. He has studied Hatha Flow, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Bikram, Kundalini, and Power Yoga. He received his 200-hour teacher training certification at YogaWorks in 2011, his Pilates Mat and equipment certifications in 2015 and 2016 at Gramercy Pilates NYC and his comprehensive certification in yoga and mindfulness for children and youth through Little Flower Yoga in 2015.

Edwin has pursued many life experiences, including landscape design, commercial pilot, international journalism and elementary Spanish education, which have lead him toward a focus on health, fitness and mindfulness.

Recently, Edwin worked with Kindergarten through grade 6 at Freebrook Academy in Brooklyn and currently with Pre-K students at The Town School in Manhattan. His goal is to help students cultivate a mindful practice.
