Meet the Intern – 10 Questions with Amy Briggs

We sat down with our new intern, Amy Briggs to get to know a little more about this strong woman.  Read below to learn more about her ultra running, piano playing, yoga teaching life!

Where did you grow up? In Canterbury, New Hampshire…on a small farm in a 200+ year old house!

Who is your family? My folks went through a ‘back-to-the-land’ phase in their 30s; hence the move to the Good Earth Farm.  I am the eldest of four; I have two sisters and a brother, and we are all in different parts of the country.  My mom, Janis, was a music teacher and avid organic gardener, before organic was popular. She passed away in 2013.  My dad, Craig, was a state court administrator and avid woodworker.  He now lives in North Carolina with his second wife, Frieda.

What do you spend most of your time doing? These days, I divide my time between playing and teaching piano (more on that below), teaching and practicing yoga (I teach classes at CorePower, Kondition, and prAna), and trail running.  I’m an avid ultra runner, and moved to Boulder two years ago from Chicago, partly because of my love for trails.  I also love the time that I spend at Koa Fit, learning about functional movement from Brenna, getting to know the team, and learning about all aspects of the business.

What’s you favorite hobby? These days, spending time up at higher altitudes, whether that’s trail running/hiking, snowshoeing, or backcountry Nordic skiing, which I started to do this past winter.

What’s the coolest thing you have done recently? I’m about to run the San Juan Solstice 50-miler; it’s supposed to be a tough race. I’ve loved training for it, and regardless of the outcome, it will be an amazing experience!

Where is the coolest place you have EVER been? Kathmandu, Nepal.  I went there a long time ago to play a concert, but want to go back and trek!

What is one thing that would surprise people about you? I spent a couple of decades + as a concert pianist.  I was the pianist for the Chicago Symphony’s MusicNOW ensemble, and played all over the world as a soloist and chamber musician.  You can find my recordings on Spotify and Amazon. I also taught on the music faculty of the University of Chicago for six years, before moving to Boulder.

How did you get interested in movement and exercise? I’ve been an avid runner since my late 20s.  I started a yoga practice around that time, mostly to heal or avoid running injuries.  My yoga practice became consistent a few years ago, and I completed CorePower’s 200-hour Power Yoga Teacher Training.  Trying to figure out soreness and injury from running and playing piano led me to reading about anatomy and trigger points; as I develop as a yoga teacher, I’m fascinated by the way the body moves most efficiently and pain-free. I’m really excited to work with people to help them feel better in their bodies, and be able to take on more activity in their daily lives.

What are you most excited to learn at Koa Fit? I’m in awe when I watch Brenna and Siri make evaluations of clients, either standing or walking.  I’m excited to learn how to tell what’s going on in the body, and then be able to find the best steps to undo patterns and relearn new ones.

What is one thing you want people to know about you?  I’m excited to work with people, one-on-one, and in groups, because I love connection, and the relationships that form over time with clients and students. I’ve had enough life experience to know that this is one of my strengths, and it feeds me!

Knee Pain? Chat with our Physical Therapist

Summer + knee pain go together like campfires + marshmallows

The days are long, the miles are up and the rest days are down.  For a lot of us summer means a huge increase in activity because we live in Colorado, the daylight is abundant and there’s so much to do.

If you’ve got an aching knee that talks to you with every pedal stroke, trail step, pavement contact, dance move or kick, don’t ignore it.  We have a lot of awesome left in this season.  Address the issue now so you can carry on with everything you do for fun.

For the month of July, our physical therapist, Pamela, is offering free 15 min chats to address the little things that might be creeping up and holding you back.

With over 12 years of experience as a PT (including a life long relationship with endurance endeavors + everything that entails), Pamela is a tremendous resource to talk about what might be going on with knees and your body.  Use her as a resource. Get her on your team so that you can keep doing what you love with more comfort.

Space is limited and is first come, first serve.  Please reserve your spot early.

Mt. Sanitas Sunrise Hike

April 6th at 5:45am

Sunrise Hike 2014

Part of the Be Balanced Community Event Series

Join Pamela Robichaud and the Koa Fit crew on Friday, April 6th at 5:45am for a Sunrise Hike up Mt. Sanitas. Start your day off right by getting some fresh air. Sunrise is at 6:37am so we should catch the sunrise close to the top of our climb. This Koa Fit tradition is the best way to start the day. We will meet at the small parking area on Mapleton, right after your cross 4th street, in front of the old hospital. We will hike up the stairs side and come down the valley.  Please bring headlamps or flashlights as we will be starting the hike in the dark.
