Amy White Hanas first discovered yoga as a young girl watching Lilias Yoga and you and practicing with her mother. Yoga then came back into Amy’s life through her background in dance when her modern dance instructor suggested it to lengthen her dancing career. Amy discovered a renewed passion for sharing what yoga has done for her after it helped her heal from a knee injury.
Amy is certified in the 200 hour yoga alliance program and the extensions program through CorePower Yoga where she was an instructor in Chicago for 2 years and through Power Pilates for Pilates mat work.
She then furthered her education with advanced training at Zen Yoga Garage with Diana Oppenheim and Margo Kellison Lightburn. Amy continues to further her practice through workshops with instructors such as Ragunath Yogi, studies weekly with prominent Chicago instructors and maintains a disciplined home practice for personal growth.
Amy is excited and grateful to share the healing powers of these practices through breath and touch with safety for her students as a priority.
Amy has owned and operated The Dance Gallery in Munster, IN since 1991.
