Amy Haysman, E-RYT, RCYT, M.Ed began teaching Middle School Literature long ago when she was young enough to be mistaken for a student. After the stunning realization that it’s unprofessional to bring a baby to school, she stopped teaching, had another child and earned a Masters in Middle Grades Education. In an effort to find herself, she signed up for yoga and 3 minutes into the first class became completely lost in the idea of making this practice accessible to all kids. By Savasana, her new path was sealed and she earned certification through YogaKids and Radiant Child. With decades of experience teaching kids, laughter yoga certification and couple 200 hour adult teacher trainings, she co-founded Grounded Yoga, Laughter, Elevation and still loves teaching yoga to children and training grown ups to do the same. It turns out that grounding kids in who they truly are and helping them genuinely express themselves is her life’s purpose and exactly where she’s meant to be found.
Amy teaches at yoga clubs and studios in Alpharetta & Johns Creek. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a schedule.
