Mother, Wife, Occupational Therapist, marathoner, triathlete, cancer survivor, registered yoga teacher, plant-based nutrition educator and much more, Aimee has a passion and interest for life that leads to an endless supply of different hats to wear.
Aimee began her career as an Occupational Therapist in 1996 after graduating from Boston University with a Masters of Science. Aimee quickly began to specialize in pediatrics working with children with a variety of disabilities.
After the diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer in 2009 Aimee began to examine her own diet. She quickly began to make the connection between the foods that were powerful anti-cancer tools, and the general behavioral and wellness benefits that these same foods would have on the children that she works with as well as her family and friends. Since then Aimee has completed a Plant Based Nutrition Certificate through T. Colin Campbell Foundation at Cornell University.
In her personal life, Aimee has always had a passion for sports, from cheerleading, skiing and mountain biking to marathons and triathlons. In 2012 she successfully completed her first half Ironman race and a “100” mile bike ride to raise money for other cancer survivors. She received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Bernadette Birney at Elements Yoga in Darien CT in 2013, and completed Baptiste Level One with Baron Baptiste in Sedona, Az in 2014. Both have empowered to her dive in to mind, body and spirit. Her mentors also include Rita Trieger and Jen Irwin, who have shown her everything is possible.
Beyond a single label that Aimee might have, she is passionate about sharing what she has learned, and learning all there is to know about living life to its fullest.
After spending the first 20 years of life standing on his head as a nationally competitive gymnast, it’s no surprise that at his first class, Tim took an immediate liking to yoga. It was his then girlfriend Aimee that introduced him to yoga over 10 years ago. Tim practiced on and off over the years, but it wasn’t until knee injury prevented him from his normal routine of running and biking, the he got the opportunity to focus exclusively on yoga. The more he practiced, the more saw that practicing Yoga, and eventually teaching would be the path for him. In 2014, Tim started his teacher training in the Baptiste Power Yoga style. The Baptiste focus on vigorous asanas, community, self-inquiry and improvement, and meditation redoubled Tim’s passion for the practice. Tim is a firm believer in what they say “the yoga mat is the laboratory and the experiment is your life”
