Amy was drawn to yoga as a teenager. The feeling of connectedness with others and the creative expression of the asanas (yoga poses) stimulated her. It was only a few years ago that Amy discovered a deep and resounding connection to this movement modality, and she has not looked back since. After completing her 200-hour teacher training with Nicole Walsh in 2012, Amy has completed her Level 2, 150 hrs with InYoga, 100hrs of The Radiance Sutras Meditation Teacher Training, Yin Teacher Training with Melanie McLaughlin and is inspired by her teachers including Les Leventhal, Tara Judelle, Simon Borg-Olivier, and Carmella Baynie; just to name a few. She follows the flow of her life and encourages others to follow theirs with each and every breath.
Amy’s personality inspires every person to have fun in their asana practice, to not sweat the small stuff, to be committed yet unattached, and to acknowledge the balance of sthira (strength) and sukha (sweetness), both on and off the mat.
Being a firm believer that “change is the only constant”, Amy encourages her students to be the best version of themselves through a supportive, fun, and alignment-focused space. Amy has worked in the not for profit sector for a number of years, an experience which has strengthened Amy’s desire to ‘give back’ and be in service for the benefit of others.
Yoga for Amy is marrying up all aspects of the self - physical, mental and emotional. It is about internal balance for external creation. About letting go of how we think, and embracing how we feel. Whether this be in a headstand, sitting in meditation, seeing the bright side of life, having difficult conversations or getting through a challenging time - marrying up all aspects of the self enables us to see clearly, breathe deeply and go for what we really want.
