I started working with Amy at a time when my anxiety was at all time high. About once every other week, for a few months, Amy and I held a “virtual mentoring” session through zoom, most often with me in the comfort of my own bed!
One of the things I loved most about these sessions was the way that she brought love, light, and healing energy to the problems I was facing. So often I get stuck in my head analyzing and trying to be rational, but humans are complex and full of many different and conflicting sides. Amy helped me to honor, appreciate, and integrate the various different parts of myself into a more loving and complete whole. In doing so, I found a way to make peace with myself and substantially reduce my anxiety. Can’t recommend her enough!
When I signed up for my 12 week personalized Honor Your Wild Heart Mentoring Program, I had expectations about working through personal issues and setting life goals. But what evolved in the process was way beyond my imagination! Each session took on a life of its own.
With Amy’s kind guidance, I uncovered obstacles that were holding me back and was able to process them from a different perspective. I discovered epiphanies that I would not have had on my own. Together we crafted practical steps to create a fuller, more satisfying way of being, and at the end of each session I was left with a sense of optimism and confidence.
Throughout, Amy consistently provided a warm, authentic, and safe space to discuss any issue that came up and I never once felt judged.Jane
Thank you for holding the beautiful, healing New Moon Circle today. It is exactly what I needed. I feel so lucky for our reconnection and to be part of this.
There is nothing like sisterhood! To see myself mirrored in others, to be in sacred space and know that I am not alone. It is truly a gift. I am in full out support of the work you are doing and allowing to be done.
Looking forward to the next one!Tara
I’ve learned this much in the past 15 years with Amy: be selfish in your search. My time with Amy is all about me. When she invites me to dive in I learn what it takes to raise my own vibration, accelerate my own evolution, face my own demons.
No one else can do that for me. This work will make a difference in the light I present to the world; there is no greater gift to your family, friends, strangers on the street, the earth. I honor my wild heart, my wild mind, my wild ideas, my wild emotions, my wild sense of humor, my wild anger, my wild wishes, my wild history, my wild future, I honor it all, every day.Lisa
I feel so honored and lucky to have met Amy at the Wild Woman Fest in 2015. She is so full of love and I felt so seen and cherished in her presence from the moment we met.
Recently I was able to attend one of Amy’s Wild Woman New Moon circles in her beautiful home studio in West Orange, NJ. She has created a beautiful, welcoming space for gathering and healing and she is a natural leader of these circles as well as a caring and attentive host.
Amy exudes her excitement and passion to be doing this type of work, and therefore has attracted a group of amazing women from her community and beyond who join her each month on the New Moon.
Amy’s circle had all the elements of a Wild Woman Project New Moon Circle: sharing, visualization, and a creative ritual. However, Amy brings in the authenticity of her own Wild Spirit and creates a truly unique offering. As a sister circle leader, it was inspiring to see the “wildness” of Amy’s circle and how she really makes it her own.
My circles have been pretty much structured “by the book” so it was exciting to see how Amy’s specialized offering of the circle elements attracted so much abundance and beautiful energy—one sister drove an hour and half to be with us that morning and another sister comes with a multitude of gemstones which she uses to create crystal grid altars at every circle.
I would highly recommend for any woman to accept the opportunity of attending one of Amy’s circles.Lauren
…I arrived at her home studio about a week later and was greeted with a strong embrace and the nostalgic smell of burning sage, candles, and essential oils. The windows were open and a warm pre-hurricane wind was moving through her house. I sat on the floor across from her at a low wooden table and she told me her yoga practice was designed to heal the mind, spirit, and body.
After a few intuitive questions I was cracked open and crying, snotting all over my face, encouraged by her to be with it. An embarrassing thing but I did it, as a result of her careful and deliberate care, as a result of her having the same gift to heal as my old therapist.

The retreat was a perfect mix of movement and introspection. It was so well-organized and beautifully executed, with a variety of thoughtful, substantive creative practices that allowed me to shift my perspective on my life and relationships. Amy helped me uncover long-held assumptions about myself that were blocking my path, in an authentic and safe, supportive environment.
There was a gentle flow to the retreat that respected all of the participants’ needs and the group shares were lovingly supportive and illuminating. This retreat enabled me to feel truly re-energized in body, mind and spirit. I left feeling empowered and inspired to create my own beautiful rituals in which to sustain my life.
I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone and everyone, in any stage of their lives.
ps. And, most importantly, Amy embodies the values and spirit in an inspiring, truly authentic way! I learned so much!Jane
I never expected the retreat to be this spiritually pure and magical. It was an honor and a gift to share this experience in nature with this group of awakened women, just Being, One with nature. Every living moment was a celebration of Life, Truth, our beautiful Earth, the beautiful essence of woman….and a reminder of the magic that can be found in every moment and every thing.
A truly awakening and mindful experience. Deep gratitude. Thank you again for sharing the beauty of your soul and your extensive knowledge of ALL things!Ana
As someone who was new to yoga, I felt extremely fortunate to have found Sacred Space Yoga. My teacher Amy radiates everything that has drawn me into my yoga practice. Her patience, warmth, encouragement, and amazing depth of knowledge creates a safe and nurturing environment allowing me to explore, through yoga, what I feel I need at that moment.
Amy has given me the freedom and security to follow my intuition as I practice while introducing me to the wide breath and scope that is yoga. Over about 5 years, I have noticed a greater sense of balance and well being in my life. I am excited to grow this seed that Amy and her Sacred Space have planted.Angela
I am so grateful for Amy! She has extensive knowledge, experience and technical expertise from years of study and devotion to her own yoga practice. Most importantly, Amy radiates love and acceptance. In her private studio, she creates an atmosphere of ease, joy and peace that allows yoga to be fun, as well as an opportunity for self-awareness, self-expression and self-acceptance.

As a Chiropractor for over 20 years I have treated many yoga teachers as well as yoga students who had sustained injuries from their yoga practices. When I was diagnosed with an unstable fracture in my spine I was very reluctant to try a yoga class. My persistent next-door neighbor raved about Amy, insisting she was different. Amy put me at ease immediately with her warmth.
I was surprised and impressed by her extensive understanding of anatomy and biomechanics. Most important, she took the time to know each person well. The small classes allowed her to guide each person, whether beginner or advanced with attention to detail and focus on safety. In less than one year I have increased range of motion and decreased pain in several areas. Cat scans and MRI results demonstrate a significant improvement in my spine. In addition to teaching me yoga as a safe and effective exercise system, Amy has opened the door to a world of healing techniques such as pranayama, chanting, mantras, crystal bowls, Reiki and the yoga lifestyle. After years of studying health and nutrition, it is exciting it have these new resources not only for myself, but also to share with my patients.
I will be forever grateful to Amy. Working with her has been a transformative path of learning and self-discovery.Debra
Amy takes a lot of time to understand each person’s needs and, because classes are very small, she is able to refine the work of an advanced student while guiding the beginner through gentle movement and poses, providing a correct and safe foundation. Through her careful guidance and encouragement to listen to one’s own body, each student discovers and creates their perfect practice. Not only is Amy a talented yoga teacher, she creates a community in her yoga classes.
We feel free to talk about our aches and pains, or our emotions as they relate to our class needs that day. We can have our own active or restorative class, vent, inspire each other, share recipes, laugh at ourselves or bring in relevant show-and-tell. The support and unconditional acceptance is fantastic. A year ago it would have been unimaginable that a yoga class could be the highlight of my week.Debbie
Amy performs Reiki like a true healer and has the thoughtfulness, understanding and compassion of our bodies that must aid in her work. Over the past year, I have been to visit Amy several times for Reiki treatments, and each one has never failed to be effective. She responds to what she senses and focuses on specific areas so accurately that I have always walked out of my session feeling 150% great.
I have highly recommended Amy to both family members and friends and cannot say enough about the great ways that Amy has helped me. If you are looking for someone who is highly trained, effective, and knowledgeable in Reiki, you are looking for Amy! – DanaDana
Yoga changed my life. In fact, yoga changed the lives of every member of my family. From the first breath, from the first hour in Amy’s space, I knew I had stumbled upon something that would not just make me feel better, but would change my outlook on every aspect of my life. All that I’ve learned from her is with me every day. My son gets through his anxiety about school by using his “yoga breathing.” My daughter frequently plops down on the floor and shows me poses that she seems to instinctively know (maybe she remembers them from my prenatal classes!) And my husband has even gotten into it, benefiting both emotionally and physically.
Yoga at Sacred Space has truly been life altering for me. I stand in awe and gratitude for the powers that brought me to it.Lynn
Your energy and light brings such peace. I am thrilled we’ve all been placed in each other’s paths. You’ve inspired me to continue to be strong and proud in my search for enlightenment. Teachers with the gift of healing like you make me know and feel that love is pure and power is beautiful. Thank you a thousand fold. NamasteMariella
