#ODDlight Feature – Amy McGuire

Jun 6th, 2018 caitlin #ODDlight, Blog

It's Amy in the ODDlight! This babe has been rocking our worlds for about 2 years at One Down Dog. An important fitness oriented element and a woman who makes a point to learn everyone's name. Smart, silly, and so damn strong - check her out!

Name: Amy McGuire

Nick Name: Mac

Hometown: Dumas Texas, Farmtown Oklahoma, Tempe AZ, Pasadena Ca haha

Favorite Place: In the sky or in the water

Favorite color: Orange

What’s your sign? Leo

Most embarrassing moment? Too many to have a most; they are just too frequent and my brain has waaaaay too much stuff going on up there to index that info.

When you aren’t at the studio where can you be found (favorite past time)? Skydiving!

How do you define yoga? I don't think I do.

Why do you teach? I teach because people need the reminder of movement, peace, to pull away from the dog and pony show we live in daily.

What brought you to become an instructor? An injury. Yoga saved me from surgery and nasty scars.

What is your favorite song to play in class? Whichever one makes me cry or dance that week.

What is your favorite pose or flow? Why? I love a lotus mudra flow. It's expressive, expanding and breathable.

Memorable yoga moment? Falling over in a wide-legged forward fold into a wall where I was then pinned during a public class.

How did you first hear about One Down Dog? Several of my co-teachers taught/teach there and I had to check it out.

What is your favorite yogi prop or piece to wear or use? (favorite mala etc) Aromatics! Gimme smoke, gimme oils!

What was the last book you read? The Luck Factor

Do you dream? Lucid dream? I dream a lot! Many of them seem real, which can be a good or bad thing given the subject matter!

If YOU were a color what color would you be? I am a color and it is YOU.
