The American Meditation Institute in Averill Park, New York was founded in July 1996 by Leonard Perlmutter and Jenness Cortez Perlmutter for the teaching and practice of authentic Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine. In January 1999 the Internal Revenue Service extended tax exempt status to the The American Meditation Institute as a 501(c)3 educational organization.

Located in the picturesque foothills of the Berkshire Mountains just 12 miles from Albany, AMI provides a peaceful, healthy setting to learn practical skills that enhance physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Since 1996 the mind/body medicine teaching at AMI has reflected the best of the ancient Himalayan wisdom tradition and of all major meditation traditions.
