Amanda first started practicing yoga during college in 2006. She connected with asana during this time and continued to practice regularly for the past 10+ years. She always used yoga as an emotional and mental release. Amanda did not embark on her teacher training until 2017, although she always felt the calling; the voice inside that ignites a passion to go deeper in the yoga philosophy and share the gifts with others. Amanda first received her children’s yoga teacher training from Radiant Child Yoga in 2017 and then completed her 200hr. yoga teacher training through Hatha Raja Yoga with Yogini Kali Om (Gabrielle Sulc). Amanda tries to integrate the eight limb path of yoga through her own daily life and cultivate a vibrant, peaceful energy for fellow students in classes. Amanda is also a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW-C) and works at an agency providing therapy to children and adults. She fully believes in one’s potential to heal their own wounds through mind-body connection. This is evident in combining yoga and mental health practices both on and off the mat. Amanda is an advocate of self-care, spirituality, and fun. When she is not working she is spending time with her three-year-old song, out in nature, or enjoying live music.
