AMETHYST Wellness is open to take care of your healthcare needs. With the current Covid-19 situation, everyone has had to make adjustments. We are taking extra precautions in our center such as daily deep cleanings and extra disinfecting after each patient. We are also spacing client scheduling so there are fewer people in the waiting area. We ask that you reschedule your appointment if you have a fever, sore throat or cough.
We also want to let you know that our Team at AMETHYST has options for Wellness! Dr. Lee can provide Functional Medicine and DOM consultations remotely (using Skype or Zoom). Any supplements or testing that is required can be picked up curbside at AMETHYST or sent directly to your home. Velina and the other staff members are offering remote sessions over the phone to help reduce body pain and emotional stress. Here is a client’s testimonial…
Because I’m a part time Santa Fe resident - yes I drive down from Santa Fe to see Velina because she’s worth it - I go for long periods without her healing touch. A couple of years ago she mentioned to me that she conducts sessions over the phone. Admittedly I was equal parts skeptical and curious. When I was back home on Bainbridge Island, Washington and my neck stiffened and my hip hitched up, resulting in my classic “leg length discrepancy,” I called her up. What transpired was miraculous and I can only think of it as "telemagic. "With a combination of energy work and talking me through healing counterstrain positions, my body was back to normal.
​​​​​​​​​~Laurie B. Arnold
The Salt Room is also OPEN! Halotherapy can help with allergies, respiratory ailments and increase your immunity to prevent illness. We have changed our scheduling so that there is only 1 person in the salt room per session and have added extra time in between each session to thoroughly sanitize the area. Couples and families are welcome to share the Salt Room together if they have been cohabitating.
Schedule your appointment today.

[03/02/20]   6am & 8am classes at The Studio will be canceled Tuesday 3/3/20

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding! 🙏🏼

Amethyst Mind Body Synergy

Everyone say hello to our newest sub instructor, Maria! You can meet her on July 16th as she subs our 6am & 7:45 am class with some yoga that day!🧘🏻‍♀️Our first time guests in the studio are FREE!

Maria was born and raised in the Land of Enchantment. She loves pursuing sweaty endeavors on a daily basis from running in the Bosque or the Sandias, to biking, to practicing yoga at local studios. She is a newly certified yoga instructor and was trained in vinyasa yoga, but loves many different forms of yoga. She was introduced to yoga as a modality to cope with recurring injuries from running and strengthen her body to prevent further injuries. She found yoga initially to supplement her other activities, but quickly learned she took more away from class, and from the time that she dedicates to herself and her practice. Through her yoga journey, she has learned more about herself and her abilities. She hopes to guide others not only by flexing their bodies, but equally as importantly their minds. Yoga has been an essential component to Maria’s healing in life and she continues to find immense benefits from yoga. Her goal in instructing is to be authentically present and help each individual find their own sense of healing.



“Everything seems to go wrong when you feel weak and depressed. But when you choose to be cheerful, every day will bring you more and more joy and fullness.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:15‬ ‭TPT‬‬

It is a choice. We have the freedom and the ability to set ourselves free. Choose JOY.

LOVES, come experience JOY from The One who is the essence and creator of it. It is through His presence alone that we can experience peace and joy in the midst of difficult. We invite you to gather with us as we seek Him tonight at Holy Yoga at 6pm at The Studio at Amethyst. We can't wait to see you, LOVES!

We are excited to welcome a new addition to the Studio at Amethyst, Lindsay Mack Winton!!!

Lindsay is a native of Albuquerque and feels passionately about honoring others through health, love and finding strength internally and externally.

She is an avid distance runner and turned to yoga as a way to strengthen her running and heal more quickly. In the process she fell in love with the inner strength she found and the peace of mind she gained within the practice of yoga.

Her passion for the wellbeing of the students around her and her straightforward approach have encouraged students to continue along their own path to health, healing and growth in their own practice. 🙏🧘‍♀️

Come meet Lindsay at our "Happy hour FLOW" classes on Fridays @ 4:30pm and Yin-Vinyasa on Saturday mornings @ 9:00am

Let’s Holy Yoga, yogis!
Tonight, 3/28 6pm with Tabby Love Midence

"Frivolous talk provokes a derisive smile; wise speech evokes nothing but respect." Proverbs 14:3 MSG

LOVES! We read this passage and can't help but reflect on the power of the words we speak. Our words have the power to build up the strongest towers, yet our words also have the power to bring things crashing down all at once. We all know this is true because we've experienced the deep pain that comes with hurtful words.

Today is a day to reflect on how we are using our words moment by moment. What things are we revealing about ourselves and about Him using our precious voices? Are we building others up and speaking life into even the darkest places? Or are we willing to enter conversations we know we shouldn't be having, allowing our words to reflect a heart posture that goes against who we truly are?

LOVES, it's never too late to start anew. Let today be a day where you use your words to spread pure love to those around you. Join us tonight as we gather to fill our cups with His beautiful presence, LOVE, and heart so that we may know the power of our words and we may use them to show the LOVE of our Almighty God.

See you at 6pm at The Studio at Amethyst, LOVE!
