Greg believes in the healing power of yoga for all.
Amy Baldacci began practicing Ashtanga yoga in 2013 at a small studio in her hometown, Montgomery, Alabama. After earning her original 200 Hour Teaching Certification in 2014, she has continued to deepen her practice and hone her teaching skills in a Primary Series Teacher Training with Tim Miller at the Ashtanga Yoga Center in 2016 and through a 300 Hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with Greg Nardi of Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide. Her hope for any practitioner she works with is that they begin to hear the voice of their own inner teacher, embracing what makes their journey and practice unique.
