AUTUMN AMOROSO

Yoga has been Autumn's constant companion for over 25 years. In her teens and early 20s it was a great way to exercise and stretch, but by her 30s yoga became a meaningful tool to find relaxation and healing, self-actualization, and a deeper connection with Spirit. Three years ago she decided to become a certified yoga instructor so that she could share this powerful practice with others. Autumn's calming and inviting presence make her students feel welcome and at ease as soon as they step foot into her studios. 

Autumn is a certified RYT-200 yoga instructor and a Level-1 Reiki instructor. She is also skilled in the practice of Mindfulness Meditation. As a psychology major at Robert Morris University, Autumn is studying to become a clinical psychologist and has a been trained to work with people who have disabilities and mental illnesses.

Her passion is to help connect people more fully to their body, mind and spirit, through the breath and through movement. And it is her joy and calling in life to bring all of her skills together to help people find a greater sense of wholeness in their lives.

For Shelby, it was love at first breath when she found yoga.  She instantly felt drawn to teach.  She found a way of movement that benefits the entire body, but most importantly a place to clear the mind for growth.  Completing her training as an RYT-200 yoga instructor in 2016, she is honored to be able to share this practice.

Outside of Yoga, some of her favorite things are taking in nature, comedy, trail running, caring for plants, and getting lost in loud music and good food.

Shelby aims to instill grounding, supportive, accepting, and freeing energy into her classes, with a special emphasis on stress relief for a renewed thirst for life. She's learned what a powerful tool yoga is to finding balance and a true sense of self.
