“I had scheduled a scuba diving trip on a Liveaboard dive boat for 9 days in Indonesia. I knew that we would be doing 3-4 dives a day, each being about 70 minutes long (lots of swimming!). In addition I knew the structure of the boat would consist of stairs, ladders really, and would have to climb them multiple times a day. In preparation, coming from a lower back injury, I asked Amy to prepare me for the strength and endurance I would need to have a successful dive trip. Amy delivered TRX lessons that allowed me to handle the amount of physical effort it would take for this trip. I know I couldn’t have had such a great trip without Amy and her TRX lessons! Liane W, TRX student 2018
“Amy changed my life. I met her ‘by chance’ during a difficult transitional period in my life. I had never practiced yoga or worked with a coach. From the beginning, Amy was fully present, patient, gently encouraging and totally attuned to me. Her yoga instruction focused on fundamentals of breathing and proper form for a limited number of basic positions. Amy’s coaching expanded my consciousness, introduced me to meditative practices, and gave me new approaches to decision making and methods for managing reactivity. Amy’s dedication, imagination and life experience make her an awesome friend, ally and teacher.” John R, private yoga client 2016
“I have known Amy for several years now, have enjoyed her yoga classes and been on two mindfulness retreats. These retreats have proved to be a highlight of my year, and I have taken away more from those two days than I could have imagined. Amy is prepared and organized, but allows the retreat to unfold in an organic and thoughtful way, and despite the group setting finds a way to connect with each participant on a personal level and encourages connection among participants, as well. I have learned that there are many avenues for mindfulness and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. I appreciate the insights I’ve gained into myself and others, and I always leave refreshed and with a greater understanding of myself, my needs, and how I can (best) relate to those around me. I enjoy that the retreats offer a mix of physical, mental, and emotional movement, and the weekend always seems to move at just the right pace. If you are looking to gain new perspectives and allow yourself to appreciate the person you are in the moment, the mindfulness retreats would be well worth your time.” Kate, mindfulness meditation and yoga student 2015
“I am 69 years old and came to yoga about five years ago. I’ve worked with Amy for the last year and a half here in Houston. Amy helped me to better understand and improve my yoga poses and also taught me a lot about breathing and mindful meditation. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my hips about eight months ago and she worked with me to develop a yoga practice that helps with that specifically. It has been invaluable. My time as her student has been a wonderful experience and I recommend her highly.” Bebe, private yoga, corrective exercise and mindfulness student 2016
“Amy helped me assemble a toolbox – yoga, meditation, mindfulness, books and other references…that has become essential in my journey. I feel so priviledged and grateful. I know that, thanks to her, my mind, body, and spirit are becoming better aligned.” MaryAnn, private hybrid client: movement, meditation and coaching 2014-2016
“Just thought I would share with you how happy I was to be able to make three of your classes this week and how impressive it is to feel the outcome of that time well spent. My hips feel “open” and also stronger, but without the soreness that would have resulted from doing a different type of exercise or strength training. I appreciate all the thoughtful effort you put into leading class for us, it’s clear you can scan the room and improvise in the moment to keep us moving along….that’s a great skill.” Mary, yoga student 2013
“Positively the best experience I ever had with a personal trainer. Amy is so positive and adaptive; her work with my whole health was life changing for me.” Michael Johnson, personal training client 2012
