Amy used to think she wanted to be a corporate lawyer, but life had another plan. She had been a pack-a-day smoker for 15 years when a waitress she worked with took her to her first hot yoga class in Soho, NYC. The class was a wake up call, one that convinced her to quit smoking and attend teacher training just six months later, in the fall of 2001.
Amy loves camel posture, but loves final savasana even more. Her favorite phrase to use on the podium, “take deep breath in, let it out slow” acts as a reminder, both on and off the mat, to stop and get centered in the present moment. She adores the students, teachers and humidity at Hot Yoga Charlottesville.
