Ami has also began to be keenly interested in sound healing and music therapy, collecting and playing different instruments of healing modalities, namely the crystal singing bowls.
She is now a certified yoga instructor (RYT 200 from YMC Medical School), and a sound healer with a Level 1 certificate (working towards Level 2 in Crystal Singing Bowls) from the Sound Healer Academy.
