Amy Sawyer

Amy has been exploring the joy and beauty of movement since the age of 4, when she began studying classical ballet.  After countless hours in the dance studio, as well as years of various aerobics classes and a certification in Pilates, Amy took her first yoga class at a community center in Belfast, Northern Ireland and began a practice that has challenged her physically, mentally and spiritually in ways that she had never before experienced.  Amy completed her year-long yoga certification in 2008 through Boundless Yoga in Washington, DC and received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2012 from Georgia State University.  Amy believes that the practice of yoga helps us understand and heal our bodies through movement, breath, and awareness.  As an instructor Amy seeks to guide others in honoring the strength and wisdom of their own bodies.

Kate Cameron

Kate fell in love with yoga in 2012 when she first discovered its unique ability to provide inner stability in a world that can at times appear full of stress and chaos. At university she had studied psychology, with a special focus on happiness and self-actualization but it wasn’t until she began practicing yoga that she truly started to find the answers she had been searching for.  

Soon Kate learned that the body and the mind were inextricably intertwined - intelligent beyond the means of any concepts she felt she could have understood from the pages of a book. Four years later Kate journeyed to Thailand where she completed her 200-hour training in February of 2016. Following her certification, Kate taught yoga to scuba divers at a dive center in Koh Tao before continuing on to Australia where she taught classes at two studios in Brisbane and gained a year of experience teaching a variety of different classes. Kate believes that the true beauty of yoga is not in how it looks but in how it feels. Asanas challenge the body in strength, balance, and flexibility but also challenge the mind in these areas as well. True yoga is the kind that bridges our physical reality with our mental one, and allows us to learn the art of non-reaction. 

She is amazed every day at the inner calm we can create through the experience of yoga and it is her hope to continue spreading this feeling to her students. Kate is also a certified Reiki master and continues to learn more about the healing arts every day.

Jenn Corton

Jenn experienced her first yoga practice as a teenager but was too thin, young and flexible to truly appreciate it.  Nearly 15 years later, after marriage and childbirth she decided to try yoga again and was humbled to discover the changes those years had wrought on her body and abilities.  After a devoted personal practice for many years, she enrolled in a 200-hour and then 300-hour teacher training program with Arianna Gallagher in Chesapeake, VA.  As a military spouse, Jenn has had the opportunity to teach in Virginia, Alaska, Germany and Kansas bringing yoga to the soldiers, spouses and veterans of our nation's military.  Now seven years and over a 1,000 taught classes later, Jenn has joined the beautiful and talented crew at the White Swan Yoga Studio where she plans to continue to develop her own practice, humbly guide the practices of her students and perhaps someday become a teacher of teachers. Namaste!
