Why Exercising Balance?

Motherhood is: soaring through highs and stumbling through lows. Exercising Balance means we’re gentle with ourselves in the process. This juggling act that is #MomLife can throw us off track. Exercising Balance is the reminder to be kind to yourself [you're human!], recognize that you will have difficult seasons and that we can gently move through them with that next deep breath, guiding us forward.
Yoga gave me the tools that carried me through my pregnancies with confidence and my births with an intention of surrender. Yoga continues to reveal truth and strength within me along the journey of motherhood. This practice moves beyond the physical to enhance our mental and emotional wellbeing. I'm honored to share it with you here.

Meet Amy

I grew up dancing at age 5 and have been fortunate to make a career out of it. After experiencing life as a dancer in New York City and learning more about determination, hope, struggle, and community than I ever thought I would, the transition to yoga seemed natural to me. Stepping onto my mat and out of the constant, electrifying buzz that is city life, gave me the opportunity to simply slow down. Yoga taught me how to breathe, how to really listen to my body and how to find more compassion for myself and for others.
