My wife Laurel and I went to Johns Creek Yoga for yoga on the lawn this Saturday. This was my first time at Johns Creek, we usually go to Duluth, and this was my first time doing yoga on the lawn. It was fantastic. Valerie was her usual incredible self, I've told her I could listen to her all day teaching yoga, she's inspirational, supportive and so funny. She did a great job. And even with the balance issues of being on the grass, it was a great class. Truth be known, I can't balance to save my life in a studio, so it doesn't matter. I really enjoyed it, I can't wait to do it again.
Her two teenage boys, fiery partner and happy little labradoodle provide plenty of opportunities to fill up with love, laughter and learning, so she naturally brings that into her teaching. She believes that teaching yoga is hard work and takes a lot of preparation and authenticity. She has found that the more energy she puts into planning a lesson that speaks to the highest of each person’s being, delivering a universal message, without regard for what happens to be popular at the moment, the deeper her students go. Amy is dedicated to sincerely connecting with her students and helping them ground in their own truth so they find the inner power, security and light heartedness to elevate to their absolute highest potential.
Amy’s certifications include YogaKids, Radiant Child, Laughter Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Anusara Inspired. Her ambition is to always be a student and a teacher. She is proud to have studied and worked with inspirational teachers such as YogaKids creators Marsha and Don Wenig and Shakta Kaur Khalsa, founder of Radiant Child. She is grateful to have trained under Mitchel Bleier, David Aukamp, RuthAnn Martin, Ross Rayburn, Sianna Sherman and Paul Muller-Ortega and continues to study with brilliant teachers from around the world.
