Based in sunny Cornwall Amy has three main passions in life; family, surfing and sharing her love of yoga through teaching and training. She has been teaching since 2008, and training and mentoring yoga teachers since 2017.
Having created her own thriving yoga business both in-person and online, she is now on a mission to help others do the same. Alongside classes and training courses Amy mentors female yoga teachers and other wellness entrepreneurs, to create a business that they and their students love through her Prosperous Yogini podcast, programme and online community. Together we all can thrive!
Prior to her life as a yoga teacher Amy taught music in schools and trained music teachers. Yoga teacher training and mentoring has felt like a natural progression from her educational background.
Amy understands what it is to be a good teacher regardless of 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.
Amy is passionate about ensuring anyone who trains with her achieves success after training and offers excellent post course support. Doing your training with Amy is just the start of the relationship!
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.
