A London based teacher originally from NZ, Amy first discovered yoga in 2005, having started her journey seeking more fulfillment from her love of physical fitness training, previously working in the design industry in interior architecture, she saw the benefits of her yoga practice on her incredibly stressful and fast-paced lifestyle which led her to pursue teaching to be able to share this with others.
Amy describes her teaching style as compassionate, playful and hands-on. Using music, readings and the spoken word to create depth in the teachings, she aims to create a space for her students to grow and connect. Her teaching focuses on alignment and breath, attuning the practice in such a way that the students are in a space to balance body, mind and soul, while becoming holistically stronger and increasing flexibility. Her inspirations come from her teachers and her own practice, readings and research, for which she has an indefatigable appetite. Amy uses her influences to provide her students with a multi-layered experience that weaves together the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga.
Amy originally trained with Yogahaven London and then went on to train extensively in the Jivamukti Yoga method completing 300Hrs with Jivamukti New York and 500Hrs Jivamukti apprenticeship in London. She has also trained with Sampoorna Yoga India (yin), Norman Blair (yin), Shiva Rea (vinyasa) and Uma Dinsmore Tuli (pregnancy yoga).
Amy teaches across London, privately, with corporate clients and studios, alongside running workshops in the UK and abroad. She also holds regular retreats all over the world and teaches on teacher training courses internationally.
