Dancer, Yoga Instructor, Personal Trainer
Amelia Bruff has been working and teaching in Vegas for more than 20 years. She danced in the long-running (35 years) show “Jubilee” and is now a diver in “Le Reve” at the Wynn Hotel. While dancing in “Jubilee” for 14 years, she had the opportunity to have a reality TV series, called “Nearly Famous” on the E! Entertainment network. She also performed on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” on NBC for Ce-Lo Green’s Christmas Special, Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday celebration, Celebrity Apprentice, Hell’s Kitchen, and Last Comic Standing, just to name a few. After training for many years, she went from a search & rescue diver to a certified divemaster, which has lead her to her current job in Le Reve.
In the 90’s, Amelia became a certified personal trainer and group instructor teaching step & spin classes. In 2001 she found herself in a yoga class called “Yoga for Stressed Out People,” since then she’s had a consistent practice in Hatha yoga. While living in Los Angeles, she trained with Billy Blanks and his family in Muay Thai and boxing. Eventually she moved to Spain to teach at a kickboxing gym, where she got certified in vinyasa flow and started teaching there. After returning to the States, she trained in different set series and started teaching at many Las Vegas studios. Training and practicing all over the world in many styles of Hatha yoga, such as vinyasa flow and set series, as well as the the many injuries she’s overcome from dancing and sports, has given her great knowledge about alignment and connecting the mind, body and breath!
She is the creator of the set series Align & Balance, which is taught throughout the week at 103 Hot Pilates & Yoga. The series focuses on alignment and breath while in static postures. Amelia has poured her heart into making it the best series possible for her students, who range in age from 5 years old up to 86. Currently she has been training with Cosmin Mahadev Singh to complete her Kundalini yoga teacher training. She believes that, in order to go from a good teacher to a great teacher, one must have the ability to keep an open mind that is continually learning, while also keeping an open heart for a life filled with love!
