"NYIOA is the aromatic urban oasis that I have been waiting for. The courses offered vary from day-long or evening workshops to Aroma 101 and Advanced Aromatherapy certification courses and are informative, fun and can easily have you hooked on the science and art of aromatherapy. The shop has a vast array of essential oils from around the world, infusions, as well as many other natural goodies, so everyone should make it a point to stop by and explore. Not to be missed!"
"Amy is just amazing, I love her. She’s extremely knowledgeable and just always available to help. I’m a teacher, so I know: some people have the knowledge but aren’t great teachers; she’s both. She helps us, to allow us to be successful. Amy always talks about her teachers as giants; I feel she’s a bit of a giant herself. It’s how she lives, it’s who she is."
"I didn’t know what to expect. The biggest pleasant surprise was the science behind it. You’re not just ‘burning sage;’ you’re absorbing, inhaling, diffusing. And Amy facilitates it so naturally. Her personal attention is outstanding, and she’s very hands-on… you expect to smell oils, but she makes you indulge in it, bond with it. It’s a physical, mental and emotional bond. Oh my god, it’s so in-depth… scientific, visceral, emotional, truly holistic. "
"I loved the environment. Everyone is so excited and it’s a nice opportunity to expand your network. They’re very unique, interesting people, but we all share the same passion; we’re all growing together. And Amy is a great, nurturing teacher; she sends you out to explore the world on your own, but gives you the support to do it. Studying at NYIOA has completely changed my practice; I learned a lot of really valuable things. Now, I’m really confident, and everything I do is really thoughtful, with science to back it up. "
"Firstly, let me thank you for one of the most invigorating sessions of learning I have had in the past few years. I thoroughly enjoyed the four days of your aromatherapy sessions and it was a great stress buster. I consider it an honor and privilege to have been a part of your tutelage. You are one of the best teachers I have come across and your dedication towards this wonderful field of aromatherapy shows profoundly in the way you teach and conduct a class. Please keep up the good work to benefit many, many more aspiring individuals like me."
"I have wanted to write to say thank you for changing my life! I hope that makes you smile. I have come back home really jazzed about EO… talking and thinking it. My friends say I sound passionate and inspired."
"I just wanted to say thank you again for offering such a beautiful, informative, and inspiring course. I loved learning from you, and really connected with your way of teaching and with the oils themselves. They are so beautiful! I have begun to explore them more deeply at home, and have enjoyed working with them and continuing to connect."
