The practice of yoga is a continuously unfolding pathway. As the years pass, it’s interesting to discover how quickly we change. As a dedicated practitioner I enjoy the feeling of balance & physical well-being from an asana practice, and the concentration and focus that my daily meditation practice brings.
As a teacher I hope to help students explore and achieve a fulfilling personal yoga practice. I enjoy the gift that each class brings and the presence and dedication of every individual.
As a bodyworker, I love the experience that each massage session brings. It’s quite rewarding to know that you are helping another to heal and feel better. Each person is so unique. I am ever grateful for their self-observation, for being in-tune to their body-mind connection, and for their trust in me as a practitioner. I remain fascinated by the human body and its many intricacies. I am always discovering new ways to continue my education with body mechanics, habitual holding & compensation patterns, and human anatomy. My hope is that my teachings and treatments reflect the passion, dedication and love I have for the healing arts.
I am also passionate about music and the outdoors. Fortunately, I have been able to travel to many places around the globe playing music, rock climbing, and practicing/teaching yoga and meditation. I have been in California since 2000, and in Lake Tahoe for 13 years. I opened Namaste 5 years ago to create an affordable place for the Tahoe community to practice yoga and experience the healing arts. I am blessed to have so many talented and wonderful practitioners and teachers at Namaste.

What she loves about being a practitioner?
Studying to be a massage therapist saved my life in many ways. Continuing my practice has kept me smiling through even my darkest days. The best part is that I continue to learn every day.
Amy Hamilton, CMT Amy became very interested in the way the body functions through her Holistic Health studies at San Francisco State University. It was there that she studied both Eastern and Western philosophies of health and healing. After completing the Holistic Health program, she began to study massage in 2009 at the San Francisco School of Massage. A couple years later she moved to Truckee, CA and in 2012 continued her massage education at the Healing Arts Institute in Citrus Heights, CA and The Bodhi Tree in Carson City, NV. She is currently a Certified Massage Therapist (CMT), holding the highest level of certification offered by the California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC). Amy has learned multiple styles of massage throughout her education including: Therapeutic Swedish, Deep Tissue & Myofascial Release, Reiki, Sports Massage, Aromatherapy, Medical Massage, Trigger Point, and Acupressure. Her personal technique has been described by many of her clients as a “dance”. She fluently blends multiple styles of massage in a single session with a goal of assisting the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Each session is specifically tailored to that individual client’s needs. Clients most appreciate her firm, fluid touch and ability to listen to both spoken and unspoken needs. In her free time, Amy enjoys keeping her own body, mind, and spirit active and healthy. She does this through running, hiking, practicing yoga, snowboarding, dancing, kayaking, spending time with friends and family, traveling, and continuing her education in holistic health and massage. Amy looks forward to her job as a massage therapist every day and is honored for the opportunity to assist you and your body on your journey to be active, happy, healthy, and free.
