Founder & facilitator,
New York City/USA & Bali
Amy grew up in the rural southern states of the USA. She built her holistic practice in New York City starting in 2000. A naturopath specializing in food and detox as medicine, she mainly teaches on her own successful retreats - and online programs - for many years. She’s also the co-founder of The Ark retreat center in Ubud, Bali. Her holistic studies began as a child with her mother as her first teacher and inspiration; living close to nature gardening, foraging, picking polk salad from the fields and watercress from the creeks. She received formal education from The University of Georgia and graduated as a naturopathic doctor from Trinity College of Natural Health in 2012. Amy is also a singer and songwriter, plus lover of nature, music, dance, and healing. She’s married to Anthony Abbagnano (alchemyofbreath.com). They live between the states and Europe with Luna the lab, and their two feisty cats.
