Where it all began....
On somewhat of a whim, before ever having stepped foot in a yoga studio, Amy enrolled in Yoga Teacher Training in January, 2013. Soon after graduation in summer 2013, Amy began teaching yoga, and hasn't stopped since. In March 2014, Amy completed her 100-Hour Barre & Soul Teacher Training (also on a whim) with Barre & Soul founder, Andrea Isabelle Lucas. In November 2014, Amy quit her full time job as a food scientist to teach yoga and barre full time. Since then, Amy has taught over 2000 yoga and barre classes. She now serves as a leader of Barre Teacher training at Barre & Soul, and a mentor for new barre and yoga teachers. She enjoys planning yoga retreats, workshops, and events.
Amy's teaching style is light-hearted and playful, but also challenging. Amy's yoga classes are intelligently sequenced with care. Amy's barre classes are a blend of mindful movements, humor, and positivity. Amy hopes to bring the joy and inspiration she found through a regular yoga and barre practice to as many people as possible. Her students describe her as authentic, honest, and compassionate.
In 2016, Amy began pursuing her life long (dormant) dream of becoming a firefighter. After passing the ELPAT (entry level physical abilities test) and written exam for Massachusetts Firefighters, she is now on the eligibility list waiting to be hired (which could take years, or not happen at all!) She completed her EMT training in March 2017, and started working for Action Ambulance as a per diem EMT in September 2017. In November of 2017, Amy started working as a Health & Wellness coach for the Breast Cancer Weight Loss Study (BWEL) at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
