Amy reluctantly attended her first yoga class in 2000. While exercise had always been an important part of her life, with three young children she did not have the time to learn another discipline. However, something in the totality of the experience, the sweaty powerful Asanas, the deep Ujjayi breathing, and the exciting energy in the room, caused Amy to go back for another class. The more yoga she did, the more Amy transformed both on and off the mat. She credits our own local yogis for inspiring her to deepen her practice and pursue teaching.

My career began in sports medicine, helping athletes of all ages return to playing and competing after an injury. Through my experience in orthopedic rehabilitation I saw the importance of taking care of ourselves not only to excel in the activities in which we pursue, but more importantly, to live healthier, happier lives.
