"Do everything with so much LOVE in your heart that you never want to do it any other way." - Yogi Desai

A London based teacher originally from NZ, Amy is passionate about yoga and how it has the ability to touch and transform lives.

 

Having always been a fitness junkie, her yoga journey began with Bikram in 2005 and has led to an ever-evolving practice. Previously working in the Design Industry in Interior Architecture, she saw the benefits of her yoga practice on her incredibly stressful and fast paced lifestyle which led her to pursue teaching to be able to share this with others.

 

With over 1000 hours of training under her belt having first trained with Yogahaven London and has since trained with the Jivamukti Yoga School New York/London. She has great gratitude for all her teachers and students and believes that we can find the guru or teacher within everyone we encounter. 

 

Amys teaching focuses on alignment and breath, attuning the practice in such a way that the students are in a space to balance body, mind and soul, while becoming holistically stronger and increasing flexibility. She aims to create a place where students feel inspired and empowered and that they leave the class feeling uplifted and energised. 

 

Whether you're looking to build strength, increase flexibility or improve well being, the one to one or group sessions will be tailored specifically for your needs, goals and abilities.

 

The sessions could be very dynamic or restorative depending on what is required and appropriate.

 

Amy teaches classes around London and offers workshops and retreats in the UK & abroad. She also teaches on teacher trainings with yogahaven London and has created and runs EVOLUTION LAB YOGA, providing mentoring programmes for new yoga teachers. She also offers private one to one and private group lessons and corporate classes.
