Amy’s need for clearing and organizing began back in 2005, when she and her family, 4 small children and 2 large Labrador Retrievers, rented their home each summer in Westport, Ct. This is when she learned the beauty and ease of an organized lifestyle. Every closet, cupboard, bedroom and personal item had to be removed and stored away neatly in her attic. After the summer, she only put back what her family needed, loved, and used. “We started living with less” and our home became more spacious and more like a haven. Amy then downsized her mother and aunts into assisted living facilities. Including, space planning, purging and donating items, packing/unpacking, hiring a mover and more. As move managers, we cover the logistics of the entire move, so you don’t have the stress and discomfort. Cleared spaces has been helping folks downsize and clear their space since 2008.

Amy realized the parallels of clearing the mind, the body, and the home while practicing yoga. One of the main goals in yoga is to create and maintain balance. Balance in the home of things you only love, need, and use helps to give a spacious and loving ambiance to a home. It should be your sanctuary, not make you feel guilty or badly about yourself? So don’t let your energy/feelings be lost to “stuff”, start clearing your space today!!

Her goal, while clearing with clients, is to help them feel a new perspective from within, “you really do not need much stuff to be happy if you work from the inside out.” Amy’s clearing techniques leave clients feeling more authentic, centered, spacious, and relaxed. “It’s a positive shift that will last a lifetime either on or off your mat.”
