Amy Terhar

From a young age, Amy was always interested in movement. She was a gymnast, a dancer, and an equestrian. After moving to San Francisco, she found the Circus School and fell in love with the static trapeze but her dreams of joining the circus were cut short after a car accident in 2002. Happily however, she was introduced to Pilates which helped her heal and provided not only the strengthening and stretching that are essential to rehabilitation but also a greater connection between the mind and the body. In 2014, Amy decided to turn her passion and her hobby into a new career and she embarked upon the Balanced Body Pilates Instructor training program at EHS. She is constantly amazed by and excited about the human body: its strengths and weaknesses, abilities and inabilities, and the beauty of its intricate workings. And as Joseph Pilates said, “The mind, when housed within a healthful body, possesses a glorious sense of power.” In her spare time, she can either be found baking in the kitchen, curled up with a good book, or out hiking.
