Founder + Co-Owner

Founding Sruti in 2010 after coming to the Berkshires in 2007 to work with the Berkshire Ashtanga practice group, Amy had the vision to build a community center around the dedicated practice group. You can find Amy’s teaching bio here and you can see all that she envisioned, in action, here at Sruti.

Amy continues to cultivate and steer the vision of SRUTI.

Director + Co-owner

A student of mindful living, Shannon takes a multi-discipline approach to learning to live a more balanced and conscious life. She is profoundly moved by the notion of community and the vital role it plays in our well being, especially in today’s often fast-paced and detached manner of living.

Shannon manages the daily operations of SRUTI.
