Amanda inspires connection, sustainability and self-inquiry through a wide variety of high-quality yoga classes, trainings and retreats. Her mission as a teacher is to help others recognize that mindfulness can take many forms and may be cultivated in a myriad of ways, such as yoga, martial arts, meditation, self-care, or by being present. She teaches heart-centered classes that range from upbeat to serious, humble to powerful, and everything in-between specializing in systematic sequences that encourage you to OWN your practice as it needs to exist in each breath without comparing yourself to the person next to you, trying to live up to your previous practice, or shutting down when something challenges you…valuable qualities for your life, too!
