Amy Haller, MSW, RYT-200, has always found freedom in movement, having danced for over a decade. She began practicing yoga about 12 years ago, and quickly began to experience the mental and emotional benefits of connecting breath with movement. Through her social work studies and her own therapy work, the power of yoga became real as she learned meditation and mind-body practices that gave more freedom to the way she interacted with herself and the world around her. Driven by her passions for mindfulness and whole-body wellness, she received her 200-hour yoga teacher certification from Create Karma in 2017, and has been teaching since. She has attended numerous trauma-informed trainings, including Trauma-Sensitive Yoga through Transformation Yoga Project, a nonprofit that works with individuals in recovery and in the criminal justice system. In 2018, she received her BarreAbove certification, and is looking forward to incorporating elements of yoga into her barre classes. Amy aims to offer safe, effective, and empowering classes where all can participate, benefit, and learn together.
Amy is a partner and wife, mom to her two year old daughter, foodie, music lover, and recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy & Practice.
