It is sort of like “Yoga-church” for me since I no longer attend an organized worship place. I have had more spiritual events or feelings attending Kirtan than all my years of Church or Bible College. Telling my family and Pastor this was like coming out of the closet … But all have given me their happiness for me in finding my Spiritual path.

I was deeply touched, inspired and uplifted by your gorgeous bhakti yoga. WOW! I felt as though I was swimming in pure bliss. My practice has been enriched and renewed and I cannot wait to do it all again. I thank you forever for that marvelous heart-and-spirit song of a day.

Amy, I was, and am, deeply moved by your workshop on Sunday. To make a long story shorter, since Sunday, I am able to see the situations/patterns that have been holding me a hostage of depression and anxiety as an observer, and instead of being ‘sucked into’ old patterns, I am rising out of them (finally!).  Thank you for holding a beautiful space for me and the others last Sunday.

There is always the need to unwind, to go deeper into oneself and renew energy for life and purpose. Amy’s Bhakti weekend offered an autumn feast of yoga body movement and heartfelt song and ceremony. All of this was facilitated by the workshops’ community which was created by mutual desire for deep connection with the earth and the divine in ourselves, and each other.

 Amy’s facilitation moves from an immediate synthesis of ancient rhythms of life wisdom and modern demands for rejuvenation and relevance. She leads us with an earthy elegance of body and spirit, and her voice in the Kirtan, call and response songs of praise, is an exquisite blend of beauty and lightness and the grit of longing for union. Her offerings are a rare opportunity to move, personally and globally, into a life of more joy, awareness and wholeness.

A bhakti yoga weekend retreat with Amy Barnes more than amazed me. It fulfilled my deepest desire to find a teacher of the yoga path that lights up my soul fire…and right here in Tennessee ! How wonderful indeed! Her “bhakti soup” cooks up so artfully the blend of yogas – the fluid, flowing hatha, pranayama breathing, repetition of mantras to music, and the bhakti, the yoga of love and devotion expressed through her presence, voice and healing touch. It makes for a totally unique and integrated experience that took many if not all of the participants, myself included, to new highs, expansions, and ecstasy.

I’ve been up close to many masters and heavy-duty spiritual teachers, feeling their darshan. The feeling that Amy exudes is right up there with the best of them, imbued with her special musical talent and the vibrations of all of her teachers, and the delightful essence of Shakti. We are very fortunate to have her presence in our area. If passion for the Divine is your calling, she might just be the one with whom to fly to the Higher Planes of existence.
