In 2008 at the age of twenty Amanda had a two year old child and was already understanding the need to shift her life to build a healthy example. She discovered low impact exercise in yoga class. Amanda found so much more! She found a place to breathe, a place to see racing thoughts pass by, a place to love and trust herself and a place free of judgment or expectation. It has been said by Sadguru that "no matter the reason you come to yoga, it works". The idea that yoga is a system of ancient tools for bringing union to the mind and body showed itself in her life over years of personal practice. Looking for a change in career after many years of working in childcare, Amanda completed 200 hour teacher training with Corepower in 2011. She is grateful for all yoga does for her, and is excited to guide her community on their unique journey one beautiful student at a time.
Amanda received her first and second level Reiki Practitioner certification with Light Internal in 2011 and 2012. Over years of personal practice, Reiki proved to be another way to come home to herself at the end of the day. It is her intent to bring to her clients a safe space in which to receive healing light which works on clearing space away from fears, doubts, limiting patterns, overstimulation and exhaustion, and begins to reveal exciting new perspectives which aid in the development of a purposeful life. Amanda enjoys spending time with good people in the outdoors, going to concerts and making art out of life.
Amanda's philosophy is: "Leave Fear, Be Change".
