BACKGROUND

Amy has over 24 years of experience in education and training, prior to her life as a yoga teacher Amy taught music in schools and trained music teachers.  Yoga teacher training and mentoring have felt like a natural progression from her educational background. 

Amy understands what it is to be a good teacher regardless of the subject.  She knows the importance of supportive environments, that share best practice to improve the experience of yoga for everyone and empowers teachers to thrive.

A mum of two and a full-time yoga teacher for over 14 years, she also knows how challenging it can be being a female solo entrepreneur!

TRAINING

Amy initially completed a 500hr yoga teacher training course with the British Wheel of Yoga and then went on to specialise in pregnancy & postnatal yoga, training with Wendy Teasdill in 2010.

Since then she has gone on to train with Bridget-Kramer Woods, completing the 100hr Anusara immersion course, Lucy Crawford-Scott (ashtanga yoga) and in 2018 she became one of Gary Carter’s anatomy students, having completed his 10-month movement and anatomy course, she now trains regularly with Gary.  This has had a profound impact on how she approaches movement and anatomy, fuelling her love of the human body, and seeking out training with other teachers such as Tom Myers and Stephen Braybrook.

In recent years Amy has developed a love for yin-yoga and has completed Norman Blair’s 5-day yin-yoga teacher training course and studied online with Bernie Clark.

PASSION

Amy has a deep love of the human body and a passion to get as many people to do yoga as possible.  Following the birth of her children she designed her own toddler yoga classes.  This has led to the creation of her book, Two Little Yogis!  Alongside yoga and her family, you will find Amy in the sea, surfing with her friends.
