Amy started practicing yoga in 2003 because of a running injury. After she left her first yoga class she felt calm and at the same time rejuvenated and was back on the mat the next day. Her running injuries subsided and she took her first yoga teacher training in 2005 with Bikram Choudhury. She taught Bikram for a year and then was fortunate to take both mini yogis foundation and advanced teacher trainings with Shana Meyerson. She has also taken the Kundalini-based Radiant Child teacher training with Shakta Khalsa. Amy also works with special needs children and has studied with Sonia Sumar and Vanessa Kahlon. She earned an additional 200-hour certification at The Green Yogi in 2013. Amy is passionate about teaching yoga to children and her classes are fun, engaging and challenging.
