About The Teacher
“I believe everyone has the right to feel happy and healthy.”
Involved in the fitness industry since 1998, Amy is a qualified group exercise instructor, Personal Trainer, Pilates and Yoga instructor. Amy has completed training in aqua aerobic, pilates matwork and reformer, pre and post natal exercise, exercise for rehab, personal training, boxing, Zumba and TRX suspension. She is also a level 2 attuned Reiki practitioner, Zen Thai Shiatsu trained and a Marma Massage therapist.
Amy’s early life involved a lot of movement, playing lots of different sports and competing in various styles of dancing. The addition of yoga to Amy’s repertoire has special significance. After years in the fitness industry, it became evident to Amy that there was more to being “fit” than just the physical.
“While strong physically, I was searching for something to develop my mental and emotional strength and then I discovered yoga.”
Looking back at her youth, without any formal instruction or knowledge of the practices just a deep intuition, Amy used breathing, visualisation and meditation to cope with childhood migraines and depression. This trust led her to complete yoga teacher training in the magical Baja Peninsular in Mexico with Yandara Yoga Institute. The 200 hour intensive course blended Hatha, Vinyasa and Kundalini yoga, learning from ten different teachers from all over the world, with different backgrounds, styles and ages, including Reiki masters, astrologers and musicians. This course changed Amy’s life on so many different levels and she feels great joy sharing these learnings everyday.
Amy’s classes are an exploration of breath, body and being. Ground the energy within and feel a sense of lightness and love. She runs the Amber Tree Yoga studio in Brisbane and loves taking yoga on the road on retreat. A chance for students to step outside of the day to day and re-connect to the beautiful beings they are.
