Amy has been lead by her body to study and learn how to relieve the tension of her scoliosis. Through her exploration of SI and yoga movement, she continues to learn as Ida Rolf said “Gravity is the therapist”.
She was so excited to study KMI which deepened her understanding of how the human body can move and live with ease. Amy holds a BS in Geology from UNC Chapel Hill. In 1998, Amy took her first of many yoga teacher trainings. Since studying about Anatomy Trains in massage school at the Scherer Institute of Natural Healing, Taos NM, in 1999, Amy has wanted to study Structural Integration. And in 2015, the time was right!
The SI series woke up Amy’s core, really it showed her where her core is exactly, which has allowed her superficial body to work less hard. Hence, the chronic pain and strain from her scoliosis has greatly decreased. She is happy to share the resilience she has found with her clients and yoga students. And help others reconnect with their resilient core!
Amy enjoys walking, kayaking, and practicing yoga on the beach. She lives on Ocracoke Island, NC where she teaches yoga classes and practices Structural Integration and myofascial massage year round.
