Hi! I’m Amy Clement.
HYLKN Founder, Studio Owner, Master Hot Yoga Teacher and Coach.
“My first experience with Bikram Yoga was in Fall 2001 when a good friend asked me to join her for a class. For over 6 years, I struggled with complications from knee surgery and when my friend told me about the healing benefits of Bikram Yoga, my curiosity was peaked; I was desperate to find a way to heal my knees and stop the medication I had been taking. At that point, I had nothing to lose and I eagerly joined her for class.
I had never taken a yoga class before and my friend was surprised when I practiced all 26 postures! By no means were they pretty, but the experience of my first class was incredible. It is the feeling my body had at the end of the first class that kept enticing me to return to the studio day after day after day.
Within a matter of months, my knees started healing and I stopped taking medication. As a result of my consistent practice, my knees have been almost pain free for the last 17 years!
Early on in my Original Hot Yoga practice, I had a feeling that my journey might someday lead me to Teacher Training.
And, now, my journey has come full circle. The experience of coaching and mentoring other teachers is amazing and overwhelming and humbling and magical. All of them. It grounds me in a way that only a community like ours does. Everyday.
We get to be accountable and responsible and caring to one another. Nothing can top that.
