"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!"

Antonia Schrieber, Massage Therapist, Aesthetician & Spa Owner

"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."
