Push in the Right Direction

KJ testimonialIn the last year and a half studying with Anodea Judith I have been putting a variety of the tools into motion working with my clients.  I have found that all of her classes provide beautiful ways of getting to the CORE of the problem that keeps us stuck in a place and we need assistance to dig out.  However how many of you feel like you are alone and can’t get a foot to move forward to take you out of that hole that you have dug even deeper just reading this!

Well great news — the choice is yours to dig out of the hole and ask for help!

Feel your Charge and Discharge!

Anodea JudithWhhhatttt do you mean I hold a CHARGE of energy when someone cuts me off in the grocery store and my dagger eyes don’t show a discharge?   Or when my spouse just really digs into me about spending money on something and my anger gets stored into my body???

Whhhhaaatttttt are you talking about!   Amy you are freakin’ crazy! (yep and I own my craziness!)

Call In Your Angels – You are NOT Alone!

Angels Angels Everywhere… You are NOT Alone!


Recently I have been calling in my Angels for support and been reviewing my favorite book (shown above) to give me better guidance in this thing we call Life!  

Yoga for your Heart

Yoga for your Heart

2015-02-14 19.38.31As we wind down Valentine’s and a time full of love, I am pondering why does one day out of the year have to promote more love than any other day?

We are each to be filled with love and a time to create awareness on a daily basis and to assist in Self- Love and Compassion toward all.  Life is full of lessons and one that I have enjoyed getting reacquainted with is compassion toward Self.

New Year, New You! Resolutions vs. ReSOULutions!

Resolve to Evolve!  Resolutions vs. ReSOULutions!

happy-new-yearNew Year Resolutions is not something I “feel”.  I don’t go along with the masses on this one, or a lot of things for that matter.   There are too many things I like, and yes not all are always the best for me.

What I feel at the New Year is a time of reflection on what worked the year before and what didn’t. What was learned and what outcomes were revealed.  What does your SOUL say to you?   Can you get out of your own way to be able to hear what it says?  

What I LOVE about Yoga

What I LOVE about Yoga

There are so many things that I love about teaching yoga and doing yoga over the last 16 years…

I LOVE the feeling at the end of class where you are “floaty” and calm and just noticing the quietness of breath.

I LOVE the fact that as a teacher people show up to take my classes and for those beginners, you are the best because you truly SHOWED UP!  That is the hardest part of yoga – taking the chance to try it out.

Types of Yoga Amy Online Classes

Types of Yoga Amy Online Classes

Types of Yoga Amy Online Classes offer a variety of styles or types of yoga formats.   I am often asked what are the differences between them.

So here is the low-down on my classes from easy to hard:

Relaxation classes are to provide you the opportunity to meditate or  if you have problems falling asleep these videos will allow you the opportunity to rest.

Legs up the wallRestorative Yoga is the easiest style of yoga.  You will use yoga props to support your body while on the ground.  This is a very relaxing format and meditative.  I encourage you to have some soft music that you can relax with and enjoy the resting postures that help you rejuvenate.  Many of the postures are held between 8-15 minutes.

Yin Yoga is a step up from restorative.  Majority postures are on the floor, however they are a deeper stretch and you ease into them to take the stretch deeper.  Many of the postures are held between 5-10 minutes each and you feel AWESOME when you finish the practice.

I recently wrote a blog about a quote “mentally died at 25, physically died at 75″ and tied in “he’s just not that into you”.

Right now I am watching an episode of Suits in First Season and it is an ex-husband telling his ex-wife that he was sorry he lied to her about an affair and that he didn’t have the Courage to tell her the truth.

Recently I heard about a couple who separated and out of separation sparks anger and sometimes rage.  Rage is about the control you are searching for.  But reality is we don’t Control anything.  What we do control is how we react to situations.   You can have so much anger that it can harm you physically and mentally and break you down emotionally.

It is a choice on how you want to move forward in your own life as you separate from another.

Some Things You Will Just Miss

Memory Lane

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASometimes a walk down memory lane is great, and sometimes it wakes up that wave of emotion inside ya.   I have been cleaning up my computer today to get ready to do a back up of my files and came across old photos and a brisk walk down memory lane.

This photo tugged at my heart however.  In the age of digital photos I have access to things from 2005 to present.  Anything before that I don’t have easy access to and heck that is probably a good thing.

These 2 sets of hands show a time in my life where I started to trust (the same person) again.   The year this photo was taken was in 2009 and he broke my heart in 2001 and yet again in 2009.
