In 2011, when an injury ended a professional ballet career, Amie moved to New York City and became a fully certified STOTT Pilates Instructor. Years later, still struggling to manage her dance injuries, Amie's Physical Therapist introduced her to Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT). After dramatic changes in her quality of movement and significant reduction in pain, Amie was inspired to enroll in the MAT Internship Program in Denver, Colorado and has been a MAT Certified Specialist since 2006. She has completed specialty courses in Neuroscience and cadaver study, advanced exercise equipment analysis and is currently pursuing her Resistance Training Specialist Mastery Level Certification. In 2012, Amie became a Mastery Level MAT Specialist.
Aside from being a self-proclaimed anatomy nerd, she is an avid outdoor enthusiast and adventure traveler. Her constant need to learn about other cultures and experience beautiful and unique places has taken Amie around the world. Knowing that her body must remain healthy ignored to do the things she loves, Amie practices what she preaches with consistent MAT sessions with her Specialist and an ongoing commitment to her health and well-being.
