Koru Mindfulness Teacher

Amy Griffin Certified

Newark, DE University of Delaware amygriff@udel.edu

I am a faculty member in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Delaware where I do research on the brain mechanisms of memory. I teach a course called “Mindfulness and the Brain” along with other neuroscience undergraduate and graduate courses. I started practicing yoga in 2007 as a way to manage stress and noticed that along with the physical benefits, yoga had a positive effect on my mind and emotions. I then decided to deepen my yoga practice by enrolling in a 200-hour yoga teacher training program and later became a registered yoga teacher through Yoga Alliance (RYT200). It was during the yoga teacher training program that I was introduced to meditation. Since then, my personal meditation practice has grown as I learn more and more about how to apply age-old mindfulness practices to my daily life. Because meditation has had such an enriching effect on my life, I am passionate about sharing mindfulness practices with others.
