ABOUT OUR TEACHERS:
Amanda aims to build her community by teaching a practice which connects students with their own body, mind and spirit. She holds space for others by offering a mindful practice for optimal wellbeing: feeling well in your being. Encouraging students to use intuitive movement, she empowers them to attune to their instincts on and off of the mat. She believes that the lessons we learn in everyday life are interchangeable to those we can apply in our yoga practice.
Amanda’s path to yoga was inspired while traveling and reading the first chapter of B.K.S. Iyengar’s Light on Yoga. Upon discovering the 8 Limbs of Yoga, she was captivated and intrigued to learn more about a philosophical and spiritual based practice. As she started attending yoga classes regularly, Amanda learned that the more she practiced, the more balanced she felt in her everyday life. Decidedly, she chose to study and learn more about yoga in order to share her discovery with others. Fall of 2019, Amanda completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram in Rishikesh, India with Himalayan Master Yogrishi Vishvketu (PhD). Feeling inspired to continue her learnings, she also studied Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training at Anand Prakash with Erin Foley and Jean Noonan.
“My yoga teaching practice has evolved with a particular focus on disability and accessible yoga. I am part of a three teacher rotation working with senior chair yoga at Lake City Community Center, volunteer/assist at Adaptive Yoga NW, and work privately with clients who are confined to chairs or bed due to SCI/spinal cord injury.
I addition to my 200 hour training, I have received training in Parkinson’s Yoga, Matthew Sanford’s Mind/Body Solutions, and chair yoga. I have attended the Accessible Yoga Conference.
My approach to yoga is simple and focuses on stability, spinal flexion, and breath with a strong core belief that “our bodies are our teachers”. I understand the difficulties of lower limb function. I believe every body can “do” yoga and that it is a most powerful practice for our bodies, minds, and spirits."
