Amanda has been studying yoga for over ten years in a variety of facets. She holds her 200-hour certification along with 40 hours of Trauma Sensitivity, and Kripalu Yoga in the Schools focusing on middle and high school students. Amanda attributes most of her in-depth learning from living at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health for two years as a volunteer and intern. Amanda spent another two years researching yoga academically. She has co-authored two articles on yoga for middle school students and its effects on stress, mood, and substance use. Additionally, Amanda has assisted on several other research projects including Yoga for PTSD & Insomnia, Acupuncture for Gulf War Illness, and Thai Chi for Parkinson’s Disease. Amanda later studied massage therapy in Costa Rica which led her to travel, working as a wellness instructor on a small-ship cruise line based in Alaska and Hawaii. Currently, she is putting all of her skills – science, yoga, and massage – to the test as an EMT, firefighter, yoga teacher, transformative breathwork coach, and massage therapist.

Amanda takes techniques from yin, Kripalu, and restorative yoga to create a gentle vinyasa flow class focused on going at your own pace and noticing what it’s like to be in your own body. Expect to move continuously while at times holding both strength building or restful postures alike.
An excellent cool-down and chill-out class!
