Yoga was a natural progression for Amy after 7 years of dancing professionally in New York City. She has had the great honor of performing as a Radio City Rockette for 3 seasons, dancing on Broadway in the musical “42nd St.” and touring the country with “Spamalot.” While in New York, Amy completed her yoga training from Sonic Yoga, Center for Yoga Studies (200 hours) and The Prenatal Yoga Center (60 hours.) With the birth of her son Wesley, at home, Amy understood the power of breath, focus and relaxation in a whole new way. Yoga has changed her life in more positive ways than she can count. Amy also has a B.F.A. in Dance Performance from The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA. Her extensive dance experience lends a thorough understanding of the body and how it moves. Amy’s classes flow with creativity and focus on proper alignment. Safely teaching inversions is also one of her passions. When the time is right, she loves celebrating a student’s first headstand, backbend or flight in crow pose! Yoga is an ongoing practice where you come to your mat to experience life in a whole new way. Amy is honored to be a part of the yogaErie community and continues to learn from and is inspired by it’s students regularly.
