A Little More About Me
Ohope Beach, Bay of Plenty, NZ
Amy has been studying, practicing and teaching yoga since 2000. Throughout her years of personal practice and teaching experience, she’s gained invaluable tools to help people like you find your way into yoga poses and out of your head. In 2014, Amy had a back injury that led her to do some rehab work on the Pilates Reformer machine and after experiencing a dramatic improvement, completed the STOTT PILATES Reformer training in 2015.
Her teaching style emphasises building a safe and sustainable yoga practice to help heal the body and improve posture. Once your body starts to feel better, it’s easier for you to observe the mind and find out what’s behind all that mind chatter–relieving stress/anxiety and letting go of the old that’s no longer serving you. Amy has a special knack for guiding you through your fear, your comfort zone, and your “story” to help you tap into the connection with ALL THAT IS and find your true inner strength–allowing you to re-connect with what’s really important in your life.
Amy’s classes blend stretching, strengthening and stabilisation exercises, pushing you to your edge, while giving options so that EVERY BODY can find the “sweet spot” in each pose. Using her background in Pilates and Foundation Training (postural improvement programme) her focus is on enhancing the natural range of motion for sustainable, functional movement.
Amy also assists with yoga teacher trainings and facilitates yoga retreats (in New Zealand and abroad).
