The relevant information:
As a yoga teacher and avid in muliple forms of yoga, Amy has been practicing partner acrobatics for over eight years and has been teaching acro, particularly, for nearly five. Already inspired by the physical challenge of the dynamic practice of acro yoga, Amy Powers found slacklining in 2009. Acro was love at first sight. Slacklining was not! Like all great relationships, Amy's relationship with slacklining grew over time.
In Amy's own words: "I always thought slacklining was “cool” but I didn’t realize how powerful of a tool it could be to find stillness (body and mind). I enjoy that it can be a solo practice as well as community based." In the words of Amy's friends: "....amazing, giving, fun and dedicated." "She is probably the hardest working person that I know - disciplined, reliable, and organized. And she does all this while managing to put her friends first!"
Amy brings her infectious, fun filled spirit to the community of Jacksonville by sharing her passion for slackline and acrobatic yoga. It is her intense desire that others properly and safely learn to enjoy these practices. She is excited and passionate about the connection that flow brings to both the body and mind of practictioners of these movement modalities, and it shows!

Amy is a math nerd!!!! She has a degree in actuarial science and statistics and occasionally does other people's taxes for fun! When she's not dorking out on numbers and movement practices, she renovates houses in her spare time (!). Amy feels that a day that doesn't end in bathtime is horribly incomplete.
