Athletics have always been a part of Amy’s life as long as she can remember. Beginning with swimming and gymnastics, she eventually discovered her true passion as a long- distance runner.
Little did she know when she stumbled briefly upon Bikram Yoga in 1999, that it would eventually open doors to a lifestyle she embraced. Even though she turned to yoga in early 2013 to deal with flexibility issues from years of distance running, she soon discovered the far-reaching benefits yoga had to offer. It was this experience that engendered the desire in her heart to pursue yoga training so that she could share the beauty of yoga with others.
Amy became a certified Senior Yoga Instructor through YogaFit in 2013, completed her 200-hour teacher training through Larry Thraen at Joy Yoga in 2015, and is a registered instructor through Yoga Alliance. She thoroughly enjoys teaching what she is so passionate about because she feels it is extremely gratifying to “turn people on to yoga”. Amy enjoys watching her students blossom and grow, and believes their lives will be not only enriched, but also more meaningful spiritually, physically, and mentally! Expect to be challenged in Amy's classes!
When Amy isn’t practicing or teaching yoga, she is out on the Houston bike trails or kayaking the waterways of Austin, Texas.
