No stranger to the power of movement, Amanda has been an athlete since day one and always felt a strong connection to her body’s intelligence. Her collective experience from many exhilarating years of playing sports is the well from which she draws guidance as a teacher in the wellness realm.
After beginning her career in social work, she quickly realized that although she loved her role in helping others, she deeply missed the physicality of her past. That’s when she naturally flowed into the mind-body fitness realm. Uncovering a whole new world of movement, her transformation began at SoulCycle as an instructor and then at Laughing Lotus NYC where she went on to practice, study and teach.
Always searching for more, for something deeper, Amanda finally found the perfect practice that acknowledged and honored the human experience : The Class by Taryn Toomey. By the end of the first song at her first Class, she knew it was the practice she had been guided toward all along. It was bold and brave; it was designed to bring life to the mat with a wholehearted dive in; it was a way to find healing when thought or word failed.
Amanda believes that when we sweat, there is sacred and powerful cleansing. Each Class is an opportunity to connect and honor all that we are. Through eclectic, energizing playlists and methodical sequencing, Amanda leads an empowering journey for the mind with the body, an opportunity to fortify not just the physical but the deep, sacred bond with one’s inner self.
