She returned from southern China in January of 2016 where she and her family had lived for the past two years. While there she was able to teach and to learn from different people from all of the world. This experience deepened her love for the practice and its power to reach ALL people. She has seen how yoga can be transformational both physically and soulfully and teaches from a place of love and gratitude.
Amanda started teaching at the age of 18 when the Reebok step aerobics workout was introduced and thong leotards were the "go-to" for all exercise instructors. She has seen the evolution of exercise over her 25 years of experience. And has grown over the years to become a fun, well-rounded instructor with many "tools" in her "tool box" to offer anyone who walks into her classes.
Amanda enjoys fun, fast paced music with energizing intervals in both her cycling and barre classes. One of her favorite parts about teaching ANY class is making all the participants feel better than when they walked in. When you walk into her class, she will "Welcome You to the Best Hour of Your Day!" and do every thing in her power to MEAN IT!
When not teaching, Amanda is kept busy running her own specialized Pilates business. She is also busy running her 3 girls around to ballet, soccer, piano and tennis. She does find the time to hike and go out with her loving husband, Kevin!
