Amy introduced herself to the practice of yoga in her college bedroom with a 28 day yoga instructional paperback. After experiencing yoga’s deep benefits for the mind and body, she was hooked on the practice upon completing the book. Amy soon began studying the style of ashtanga yoga under the instruction of Michael Stein at Ashtanga Yoga of New Paltz, where she received her first 200 hour teaching certificate. She has since received a second 200 hour teaching certificate from Vitality Yoga Flow, training in Silver Sneakers Yoga (chair yoga) and developed a musical yoga class for preschool aged children.
Amy has been teaching yoga for over a decade and has had students ranging from age 3-90. She loves teaching students of all levels, backgrounds and abilities. Her classes are an un-fixed intuitive flow, which tap into the specific energies and needs of each group.
In addition to teaching yoga, Amy is a singer-songwriter, early childhood music teacher, children’s librarian, and lover of animals, nature and a creative life!
