Amy Yates, Director of Education & Partner
Certified Holistic Nutritionist; Licensed Massage Therapist; Somatrainer; DO (in process)
Amy Yates grew up in chilly Edmonton, Alberta with inspiring parents and a strong passion for movement and physiology. She quickly became a high-level dancer and as a young teenager competed in solo and group events on the Canadian team for the world championships. At just 16 years old, Amy attended an extensive Pilates certification program to further her understanding of the body and to begin to help others. Amy continued her Pilates instructing while training in modern dance and dancing for professional dance companies in San Francisco and New York City. At this time she also attending various colleges to study neuroscience. Around this time, Amy also became a certified personal trainer.
After many years of strenuous modern dance and experiencing the burnout that resulted, Amy decided to leave the industry to heal herself and focus on other passions. In many ways, this was the real beginning of her journey into health and wellness, as it was the first time she was on the side of needing help.
Amy followed many rehabilitative paths and became deeply interested in healing, itself. This journey was truly mind-expanding, as she began to experience and deeply appreciate the complexities of the body and mind. Through this, she realized that health and wellness can occur at many different scales (cell, tissue, organism, family, community, etc.) and that all of these are truly valid, important and valuable. With this realization, Amy expanded her scope of practice by becoming a nutritionist and massage therapist.
With these added skills and the help of many mentors, Amy adopted the complexity-model of practice which she continues to use. In this, she focuses on process, rather than destination; quality over quantity, and learning/understanding over memorization. She respects her clients goals, interests and expectations and uses the techniques which are associated with their values and interests.
Amy now lives in Perkasie, PA where she works with clients, teaches classes and does online and live mentoring/teaching for professionals. Amy dances (in her living room), sings (in her car), hikes whenever possible, meditates daily, saunas whenever possible, cooks, does daily ELDOA, and is learning the art of gardening.
