Amy’s "Journey to the Heart" started as a way of rehabilitating her knee injury sustained during her career as a collegiate athlete and professional dancer. Her classes are heartfelt and intentional, creatively constructed to be challenging and compassionate. Whether teaching vinyasa or a restorative class, Amy's sequences are filled with precise alignment, intuitive hands-on enhancements, light-hearted humor, a little sass, and a lot of love.
The inspiration for her style is multifaceted. Amy calls upon many different disciplines — yoga anatomy, ayurvedic principles, the rhythms of nature’s cycles, yoga therapy, mantra, meditation, classical yoga texts, and sometimes Beyoncé. She has over 13 years of experience teaching yoga and 20 years of practicing and studying with a myriad of styles and teachers like Baron Baptiste, Ana Forrest, Yoga Kids’ Marsha Wenig, Boston’s Best David Vendetti, Todd Skoglund, Natasha Rizopoulos, and Shiva Rea. She holds multiple certifications including E-800 RYT, Yoga Therapy through Loyola Marymount University, and Ayurveda Consultant through The Living Ayurveda Program with Maria Garre.
Amy travels the world facilitating yoga retreats, workshops, and yoga teacher training programs. She has been featured in Origin Magazine, Mantra Magazine, and Yoga Journal, and was the Yoga Journal Cover model for the March 2013 issue. After five years studying and growing exponentially in California, she is happy to be back in her hometown of Boston.
