Meet Amy, one of The Bike Rack’s Sunday yoga instructors! We host yoga for cyclists every Sunday at 6pm at our Logan Circle location. Join us!
Amy Rizzotto is a yoga instructor, certified nutrition coach, healthy living blogger and wellness entrepreneur. Amy has always had a knack for business and a passion for work-life balance. A yogi for 12 years and outdoor exercise enthusiast all her life, Amy turned her healthy hobbies into a career in 2014 after four years in global philanthropy and fundraising. She is certified in Mindful Yoga Therapy for PTSD, Rocket Yoga, Budokon Yoga, Power Yoga and Sports Nutrition.
A little more than two years ago, a friend of Amy’s and a fellow yoga teacher came to her with the idea to open a studio in the Park View/Petworth neighborhood. After months of planning, they opened Yoga Heights inviting everyone at every level and every budget to join in their yoga community.
Amy found running her own business and sharing in the responsibilities of the studio an exciting challenge and change of after having worked in a more formal office environment for years. Maintaining a healthy personal work-life balance comes easy to Amy and she loves knowing that she is helping others achieve that in their own way.
Because Amy is self-employed, she is able to take on fun classes like the one she occasionally teaches at The Bike Rack! She says that the Sunday night classes are always so lovely. People come in with such laid-back attitudes and a sense of adventure. As a cyclist, Amy has fun planning sequences that will suit the cyclist’s body. Amy has been a great addition to our Sunday night yoga class at The Bike Rack. Her energy combined with her sense of calm and her teaching expertise come together for an amazing class.
Thanks Amy for being part of The Bike Rack family!
