As NGY’s Super-Flexible Support Specialist. She helps things run smoothly on the back-end of the biz where she does a little bit of everything, including customer service, website maintenance, NGY Teacher & Trainer support, order fulfillment, marketing & design, and more.

If you have a question about anything NGY related, email Amy and she can either answer it or direct you to the person who can!
Amy began her career in early childhood education where she specialized in imaginative play and creative movement and later developed a passion for sharing yoga + mindfulness with teachers and students within schools. She helped revamp the curriculum and is lead trainer for the new EVOLvED™ 8-hour Certification Training for Educators & Yoga Professionals. Her goal is to share techniques and tools with educators that help cultivate a positive & healthy school environment, manage stress and reduce anxiety for students and teachers, and promote empathy & tolerance towards others.
When not leading NGY Trainings, Amy teaches NGY classes for toddlers through teens infused with age-appropriate yoga poses, creative movement, learning points, breathing exercises, props, and imaginative play. Classes for younger children are sprinkled with music, crafts, books, and play to help foster motor coordination, language development, and social & emotional skills. Older children and teens explore partner poses & cooperative games to inspire positive peer interactions, engage in activities that promote emotional balance and self-confidence, and begin to integrate flowing sequences, and deeper relaxation & meditation techniques.
Amy lives in Ambler, PA (Greater Philadelphia area) with her husband, two daughters, and their turtle, Oswald. She loves hanging out with her family, exploring flea markets and the library, comic books, the smell of coffee, volunteering in her community and schools, and learning new things. She is incredibly grateful to be a part of a supportive community of like mided yogis and educators, and to have the opportunity to do meaningful work that she loves.
