Amore has the roots of the Pacific Northwest and the spirit of the Southern Coast. She spent many of her formative years exploring the healing powers of nature in Portland Oregon that initiated her love of untethered travel and learning. She went to school at The University California – San Diego, The Art Institute and Ashford University to follow her passion for people, movement and art. Currently she holds degrees in psychology, interior design, theatre dance and a Masters in management. In 2001 she served in the Peace Corps, Ghana Africa as a health and sanitation teacher to local villages. Upon returning from Africa, Amore was diagnosed with two auto-immune diseases; ankylosing spondylitis and ulcerative colitis. This has only activated a deeper yearning to learn and share her experience and knowledge as a collective community of healing.
She continues to tap into her exploratory nature through her world travels, continuing education opportunities and yoga practice. She is 500hr yoga certified and plans to complete her doctorate in Ayurvedic medicine and philosophy. Over the past 10 years she has facilitated countless trainings, workshops, retreats and community events integrated in yoga, nutrition and life wellness.
Her mission is to share the fundamental healing of yoga, in collaboration with the therapeutic modalities of the Catalyst team, to deliver a whole-body wellness program to its community.
