Testimonials

Hilary Amante

"Amy lovingly guides her moms through the early stages of motherhood with deeply nurturing pre- and post-natal yoga. The trust I had in my body and its capabilities throughout pregnancy, delivery and beyond stemmed from the time I spent with her, soaking up her knowledge and being part of the incredible community she fosters in her classes.

At a point in my second pregnancy when all seemed to turn upside down, Amy was a beacon of light, right there easing me back into those familiar poses, guiding my breath, helping me to recognize the absolute miracles our bodies are capable of carrying forward, and to believe again in the ability of my mind and body to overcome the unexpected. While my children are now rapidly growing through their school ages, I still find myself connecting with the energy Amy shared well over a handful of a years ago, and I am forever grateful."

Beth McIvor

"Amy is all mothers' mother. She is a kind, approachable, knowledgeable and intelligent teacher. She leads a safe and supportive class always leaving time to dive deeper into a pose or topic. Amy is a leader in the pre and post natal community and she radiates acceptance for all!"

Sarah Hayduk

"I did pre-natal yoga with Amy, and a prenatal workshop. Her knowledge, calming presence, wisdom and support made my pregnancy more enjoyable and prepared me for a beautiful birth experience as much as the yoga did. She showed my colicky baby some love while I gently stretched my sleep-deprived, post-natal body and we were both calmer when we were in those mom and baby yoga classes. We loved it (and her!) so much, I continued to bring my children to do yoga in the park with her for many years afterwards, and I recommend any classes she is offering to every pregnant friend!"

Jennifer Scott Munoz

"Amy is the real deal! She's so passionate about mamas and babies, and truly has your best interest at heart. She is kind, gentle, caring, and so darn funny. She's the walking definition of a hug. Honestly, you will feel so cared for and loved in her classes. You will learn SO much about your body, your baby, and your super powers that you didn't even know you had. Amy is a gift to our community."
