If you have done yoga you are familiar with the literal ebb and flow of the practice. Like most things in life, there are times we feel the great inspiration to return to the mat and other times in life when we step back.
We could call these “excuses" but let’s not place negative blame on ourselves today, ok?
As a Psychotherapist, I have had the great privilege of witnessing my clients’ journey to healing. Through gained awareness, these individuals begin to observe old patterns which do not serve them as adults and learn a valuable gift: to be gentle with themselves.
It is through this gentleness we begin to forgive ourselves and become more open to new opportunities in trusting our many feelings and emotions.
Getting back to practice whether it’s in therapy or yoga comes more easily when offered as a gentle lead. And, if you are seeking support in mind/body health we’re here to support your journey.
In well health,
Sophie grew up in Dunwoody and yoga has been a consistent part of her life for four years. She loves a good sweat and her favorite style of yoga is Hot Vinyasa. What makes yoga special to Sophie is that it provides a space for you to just 'be' with no obligations. Sophie loves spending her free time reading, going to concerts and music festivals, and being in nature. She is a stretch therapist at a chiropractor's office, loves anatomy and the human body. She has a passion for holistic health, and is a firm supporter of the fact that your body is able to heal itself.
Happy St. Patrick's 2022.
We can remember where we were one year ago today and thankfully, we are beginning to feel more comfortable "being together".
A consistent yoga practice gives us space to be with our breath and our bodies.

Erin began her yoga journey 20 years ago, and since then her path has been full of many twists and turns, but yoga has remained a constant. Her practice has mirrored the shifting and flowing that life presents – and after leaving a high stress job in Washington, DC she and her husband moved to Austin, TX where she knew she wanted to pursue yoga teacher training. She received her 200 hour hatha yoga teacher certification in 2007, and has been teaching in many different environments since then. Erin’s style is nurturing, warm, thorough, inclusive and fun. She has taught a variety of classes including vinyasa flow, prenatal, gentle/restorative and deep therapeutic stretch, and beginners’ series. Erin and her family have lived in various places – Austin, Northern VA, and Pittsburgh, PA. While in Pittsburgh, Erin opened a yoga studio that she successfully owned and operated for 5 years, creating an amazing community of yogis. Ultimately the impact of the pandemic on both her studio and her husband’s work resulted in an unexpected but exciting move to the Atlanta area in August of 2021 where they now happily reside in Roswell. Erin’s yogic path has led her to pursuing becoming a certified Yoga Therapist, and she is currently in her third year and working as a Yoga Therapy Intern. Outside of her yoga world, Erin enjoys spending time with her husband, daughters, mom and 11 pets (all under one sweet roof). She loves cooking, live music and traveling back to Austin for training (and fun). She is honored and excited to be a part of Amy Lloyd Yoga & Wellness!
Abby has been teaching yoga for four years. Having completed her 200YTT through a Hatha yoga school, she went to complete an additional 400+ hours of training through Holy Yoga International. For the past few years, she has studied and practiced asana, pranayama, meditation, healing touch, as well as the exploring the intersection of her faith with her yoga. As an artist and a musician, you can expect a creative touch in all of her flows, with her occasionally singing an acoustic song for savasana on either guitar or ukulele. Yoga taught her how to walk in the fullness of who she is and who she is meant to be, and through teaching she hopes to inspire others to find and honor their true identities and their inherent, unique gifts.
