Amy first found yoga in 1992 while she was teaching fitness classes part time. Initially, she was drawn to the freedom of expression and strength she felt in the physical movement of each asana. Over the years, her yoga practice has evolved and supported her through self image issues, hypothyroidism, her pregnancies and caring for her dear family. She greatly connects with the solace and liberation within yoga. Amy began teaching vinyasa influenced classes in 2009 after receiving training with YogaFit. In 2011, she completed a 200 hour teacher training with Aura Wellness Center.
Amy marvels at the beauty and power of each of her students. She strives to use yoga as a vehicle to help people discover an inner smile and fire. Her classes are fluid, yet easy to follow. Amy's goal is to help each person find their unique strength and purest expression. She continues her yoga studies with Ashley Litecky Elenbaas and is so thankful to her, and all of her dear teachers, for their unique guidance and inspiration. Her hope is to live harmoniously with her yoga so that she may share and experience yoga every moment of the day, on and off of her purple sticky mat.
