Amanda accidentally stumbled upon a beach yoga class in Hawaii ten years ago and has been hooked ever since. Yoga for her started as simply a way to work out, but has since become a way to practice mindfulness both on and off the mat. Her teaching has also evolved since she was first certified in 2009. She now teaches vinyasa, hatha, and restorative yoga and often brings meditation and chanting into the practice. Amanda's favorite part of teaching is working with new yoga teachers to deepen their own practice and help them find an authentic voice.
