Amy's personal journey with yoga began 20 years ago at a gym in south Austin, when she dropped in on a class “hoping to get some stretching and strengthening in.” She found it to be so much more, and was immediately hooked. Her intention in teaching yoga to children is to introduce yoga concepts early in life, that will grow with them. These include skills that will exercise their minds, bodies and spirits. Her hope with each student is for them to form habits they can carry “off the mat,” into their daily lives.
