Amanda took her first yoga class in college and vowed she would not return. After a few years, three knee surgeries and a suggestion from her doctor that she use yoga as part of her physical therapy routine, she returned to her mat in 2008, and found a new appreciation and love for yoga. She found a way to heal and nourish herself, find calmness and breathe. Drawing on both physical and mental strength Amanda found that yoga is truly the integration of mind, body and spirit. It has taught her to release the stresses of everyday life, and to focus on being present in the moment. Amanda completed her RYT-200 at Yoga Flow in the spring of 2013, and she looks forward sharing her love of and passion for yoga with others. When not on her mat you can find Amanda teaching Barre classes, in the ceramics studio, boxing, spending time with family and friends, or at the park with her dogs.
