Amy’s classes draw on a variety of techniques, including yoga, kathak and inclusive practice, working with complex coordination and offering the opportunity to make translations when needed and guiding them through this process. The class will encourage participants to work with a variety of textures and dynamics, from the highly athletic to the somatic.
