Hi I'm Amy

I am a mother of five. I am a performer and a yoga teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have five children. In between caring for their needs I care for my yoga students. I am an actress, musician and writer.

Why I am a Mormon

I learned about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints from my best friend in high school. On my first visit to a Sunday service I was impressed by the reverence towards the sacrament and the emphasis on families. I was raised partly by my grandmother whose example of a Christ-like life inspired me to want to live like the Savior myself. I felt that the church was the place where I could truly learn about the Savior and try to be like him.

How I live my faith

Raising children is a challenging endeavor. Each day is different. In the teachings of Jesus Christ and the counsel of our Prophets and Apostles I find the guidance I need to help me be an influence for good in the lives of my family members. As a yoga teacher I do my best to communicate divine qualities. Our physical bodies are the crowning creation of our Father in Heaven, if we care for it with reverence it can be a source of learning and joy.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

In my teaching I try to help students deepen and enhance the mind body connection. Our physical bodies can teach us lessons just like the natural world around us. When we are connected to our bodies we can learn eternal principles. Spirit is matter, meaning it has a physical quality, which resides in our physical bodies. If our choices affect our bodies then it follows that our choices also affect our spirits since our spirits reside in our bodies. So, if choices can change our bodies then it can also change our spirits. Making good choices for our bodies works the same as making good choices in our lives. If we choose to care for our physical bodies according to revealed truths and scientifically proven knowledge then we are also caring for our spirits. When we feel good physically it's easier to feel good emotionally and mentally, in other words, spiritually. Show more Show less
