The focus of Amanda’s yoga teaching is simple: heal the body and mind to perform your best.
Amanda is a competitive distance and marathon runner racing over 1,000 miles in over 100 road races including six NYC Marathons. She started practicing yoga in 2003 and began utilizing it as a parallel treatment to physical therapy when recovering from running related hamstring, sciatic nerve, knee, and Achilles tendon injuries. It became an essential element of her recovery—physically, emotionally and spiritually.
A trained dancer, Amanda practiced, performed and choreographed dance for 26 years, lending her lifetime of body awareness a newfound credibility through a yoga form that is both rigorous and healing to the physical, as well as emotional self.
Amanda completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at Prana Power Yoga in 2012 and is a registered member of the Yoga Alliance. She received her B.S. in Business Administration from Colorado State University and a M.S. in Fundraising and Nonprofit Management at New York University.
