With a 10 year background in gymnastics, Amanda was introduced to yoga in high school and immediately loved the physical aspect of the practice. It wasn't until she moved away for college when she started practicing Ashtanga & Vinyasa regularly. After two years of continuous dedication, she became hooked on not just the physical aspect of yoga but the mind, body and spiritual connection.
In late 2014 she began her journey to becoming a teacher. When she completed her RYT 200, she craved to learn more and to dive deeper into yoga philosophy. She graduated from Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Tempe, Arizona where she finished the 800 hour Holistic Health Practitioner program while completing her RYT 500, Holistic Nutrition Specialist and Reiki Master Teacher. Amanda now specializes in Vinyasa, Yin, Prenatal, Children's, PTSD, Aromatherapy and Crystal Bowl Sound Healing.
Amanda loves incorporating funky, dynamic flows and fun tunes into her sequencing and don't be surprised if you catch her dancing and singing to the music!
