After practicing for a few years in her native Miami Amy moved to Birmingham, Michigan where she began practicing ashtanga and vinyasa regularly under the guidance of Johnny Kest at The Center for Yoga. Amy is the mother of two children, and attributes her successful pregnancies and deliveries to her yoga practice. “The breathwork and movement I learned in my practice allowed me to remain calm and focused during both deliveries.
We also think of Amy as “yoga royalty” here at Red Pearl as her mom, Alys Marks was one of the first instructors when we opened in 2002. Amy earned her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified through The Yoga Joint. She uses her energetic and compassionate spirit to guide students through a dynamic vinyasa flow, accompanied by loving hands and great playlists.
