Amy L. Green (MA, E-RYT 500, YACEP, STOTT PILATES Reformer & Foundation Training Instructor)
Amy is the Founder of Mind Body Movement Yoga & Pilates Studio in Whakatane, NZ, and has studied, practiced, and taught for 18 years. She was named the ‘Mind Body Instructor of the Year 2017’ by the Exercise Association of NZ.
Amy’s main objective in each class is to teach yoga asana in a way that is accessible, sustainable and mindful; supporting students to get out of the head, into the body and even beyond the body. Her teaching style holds space for students to tune into a subtle ‘felt experience’ of abundant gratitude as they practice. Though Amy’s teaching style is less traditional and more exercise science based, it is all about the dynamic balance of stihra and sukha, of yin and yang, of movement and stillness; building greater mind/body awareness. Amy’s classes have an element of play, fun and laughter—because she believes if it’s not fun, why bother? Life is a play and yoga is a dance.
Amy is an avid learner and is frequently training to keep on top of research and developments in the field. She endeavours to make all participants feel safe, supported and welcome in her classes. Amy believes that our health is our wealth and when we aren’t healthy, we can’t enjoy the things we love in life. Her classes and private sessions are taught with that simple philosophy in mind.
