Amy is a yoga teacher, writer, and philanthropist. She is known for her innovative methods to bridge the gap between ancient yoga wisdom and modern day life, helping yoga students “turn up their own volume.”
After years of feeling powerless to help her teacher training graduates actually survive as yoga teachers, she started studying business, marketing, finances and technology. In 2010, when she felt confident enough to share what she had learned, she created “90 Minutes to Change the WorldTM”. This professional development program inspired her and Taro Smith to found 90 Monkeys.
Amy’s passion is to help yoga teachers thrive not only in their teaching technique, but also as professionals. There is nothing more rewarding for her than hearing about how 90 Monkeys graduates have changed the lives of their students.
When not working with the Monkeys team, Amy serves as a featured instructor for Glo.com (the leading online yoga provider). She has graced the covers of Yoga Journal and Fit Yoga Magazine and has been featured in Yoga International, Self, Origin Magazine, New York Magazine, Yogini Magazine (Japan), Allure (Korea), Elephant Journal, MindBodyGreen and many more. She is also a faculty member at the Omega Institute, Esalen and Kripalu.
