  • Amanda offered one of the best classes I have ever been to, ever. She was welcoming and encouraging, expertly and compassionately managing a class of participants of apparently diverse experience and ability. She gave great variations without singling anyone out, but also was available for personal adjustments and suggestions. Thank you, Amanda!

  • Amanda is fantastic! The moment I met her, I immediately felt as though I had known her for some timeโ€ฆand that she knew me! She quickly assessed what my body (and mind) needed and worked with me to attain my goals. I was both challenged and motivated and LOVED every minute of our sessions. I especially loved the calming environment and that she does not subscribe to a โ€œone size fits allโ€ approach. Highly recommend!
