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!
Her humorous teaching style is based on love, acceptance and practicing gratitude for the abundance of both. She hopes to inspire her students to consider these principles, develop their own unique practice and work to take all the offerings of yoga off the mat. She believes this begins by looking up and smiling at everyone you pass by in this journey of life.

Erin has an eye for connections and a knack for clear communication. She teaches in a way that is equal parts precise alignment and flowing movement. Her classes have been called "sneaky-tough", but since she speaks heart-to-heart, the tough feels like love. Students leave class feeling rinsed clean and inspired to live big. Erin completed her first teacher training in 2007. She's been leading classes ever since and growing her own particular way of transmitting yoga's wisdom. She has enjoyed more than 400 hours of training with Sianna Sherman. Hareesh Wallis, Noah Maze, and Darren Rhodes are also among her teachers and influences.
As a girl Erin wanted to be Pegasus and fly like lightning. For now she's happy being a yoga teacher, leading kindred spirits on flights toward freedom in our bodies and hearts.
