Instructor Bio: Amy Alexy
Amy is teaching the Thursday evening class. She brings a varied background to her yoga instruction. Amy received a Bachelor of Science degree from The Ohio State University, after which she practiced as a Registered Dietician. Returning to School at Kent State University, she earned a Master of Arts in teaching, licensing her to teach children grades 1-8. Having first earned a 200-hour level yoga certificate from Awaken Yoga School and later certified as a ChildLight children’s instructor, Amy teaches yoga and meditation in the Kirtland Public Schools (to both teachers and students), Kirtland Public Library, and area studios. These teaching opportunities, as well as substituting at the schools on a regular basis, have helped her contribute to the well-being of her community and herself. Additionally, Amy is a Level II Reiki Practitioner, has had initial training in Awaken Yoga’s Body Wisdom Therapy, follows a vegan lifestyle, and works with anatomy and alignment principles to heal her own body and those of others. It is her wish to share these healthy techniques with you-giving back to those who selflessly give of themselves.
