Amy Williams

Overall health and wellness have always been a passion for Amy Williams. Amy dove into her own yoga practice while in graduate school for Counseling Psychology after she discovered how beneficial yoga was in maintaining her own well-being. After completing her Master’s degree, Amy hopped into bCalm Power Yoga’s 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training program in Hopkinton, fulfilling a longtime goal of pursuing a career related to both mental and physical health and wellness.

Amy found the physical practice of yoga was a way to reconnect the mind with the body, helping to be more present and move fluidly both on and off the mat. Amy led an active lifestyle from a young age, starting with ballet as a child. Following her first yoga teacher training, Amy completed two BarSculpt trainings, allowing her to connect with her roots and diversify her teaching to both yoga and barre. Amy went on to complete SUP YO teacher training with the goal of uniting her love of nature and yoga through teaching SUP Yoga in the warmer New England weather.

Off the mat, Amy works full time as a mental health therapist where she brings the foundations of yoga into the clinical setting. You might also catch Amy out on her SUP board, on the trails with her husband, baby girl, and Plott Hound, Carl, or checking out local craft breweries.
