Inspired by the Kripalu and Pranakriya traditions, Amanda’s teaching style is breath-centered, focused on an inner awareness of our experiences. Amanda found yoga at age 40 while searching for a level of healing beyond what doctors could offer. Her belief in self-health led to inquiries around nourishing the Self on many levels. She considers the yogic journey a path of compassionate inquiry and endless unlearning.
Certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT) and a registered Yoga Alliance teacher (RYT500, E-RYT200), Amanda also is a certified Thai bodyworker. She trained in Self-Awakening Yoga Therapeutics® under Don Stapelton PhD (Nosara Yoga Institute, Costa Rica), with Pranakriya School of Healing Arts with Yoganand Michael Carroll, and continues advanced studies at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Massachusetts. Amanda is fascinated by the body’s capacity not only to heal, but to reveal, and she considers herself a life-long student.
