Yoga: My Roadmap for Self-Discovery
I practice for my students, I teach for myself.
I began to develop my yoga practice in 2011 and after participating in an Instagram #yogaeverydamnday challenge. Back then, I never thought I’d be leading people through their own practice.
What began as a very physically rewarding practice eventually evolved into a deep dive into my Self.
I learned not just how to open and strengthen my body with intention, but how to open my mind and my heart in ways I could have never imagined.
I received my 200-hour yoga certification from Open Sky is 2017 with continued education in Back Care and Restorative Yoga in 2018 and 2019.
“Before yoga classes with Amanda, I had no experience or understanding of yoga. Since the first class I started, I had a much better knowledge of many yoga poses and the importance of breathing. Amanda walks through each of the steps at a comfortable pace, and encourages us to push the limits we set for ourselves. She’s a positive light with a depth of knowledge and caring for her students and their yoga goals, and is always incredibly accomodating and versatile if you have an ailment that prohibits certain poses.The variety she brings to her classes makes each time feel truly unique, and you leave feeling accomplished and connected. She’s the best.”
You have no idea how much I enjoy your classes. Taking one hour for ME! The little things you say during class carries me through the week.
I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone who wants to start yoga or continue their practice in a new setting. When you walk into the room you are immediately greeted with a warm smile and friendly “how is your day going?” . Amanda’s style of teaching is very easy to follow, she makes sure you are comfortable with the pose and if you are having trouble, she either come over to help you or make an alternative pose for you.
