Born and raised in Jackson Hole, Amy Kingwill returns to the region after many years working as a performer, arts administrator, movement and Pilates Instructor primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a movement specialist with over 35 years experience in dance training and performance; her Pilates and functional fitness training, yoga practice, Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais work build on this foundation. Known fondly as the “Velvet Hammer” , Amy empathetically reads her clients and adjusts to push them just enough without overdoing it or causing further injury. She brings her love of motion, her kinesthetic awareness, and her inquisitiveness about what bodies can do to assist you in developing a stronger, happier, healthier you.
