  • About Amanda

    Amanda Amadei, E-RYT 500

    Yoga Instructor, E-RYT 500

    Yoga Director & Lead Instructor of Teacher Training for Ascend Center 


    Amanda's teaching empowers yoga students of all abilities to cultivate freedom and strength in their bodies, and to practice with patience, courage, and a light heart. As you move through a yoga class with Amanda, you will focus on linking the movements to the breath. This unified practice, called vinyasa, creates an experience on the mat that goes beyond physical aptitude to one of true self-study and integration.

     

    Through your practice, you will find it's this integration of self compassion, body awareness, and breath control that brings power and clarity.

     

    Amanda is grateful to her primary teachers, Liz Ortiz and Jason Crandell for their wisdom and continued guidance.

  • WHAT IS VINYASA YOGA?

    Simply stated, when we synchronize our breath and movement it's called vinyasa. When those movements flowing together are yoga postures (asanas) it becomes vinyasa yoga.

     

    Amanda's personal style of vinyasa flow yoga links together traditional hatha yoga asanas into creative sequences that are different each time. The benefits include increased flexibility, strength, cardiovascular endurance, balance, agility, and awareness.

     

    You start from where you are. We do not practice to become perfect. We practice to make peace with our imperfections.

    You do not need to be flexible and strong to practice yoga, you need to want to be.
