Philosophy

“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared”

Yoga means union, a connection, to yolk or bring together, most specifically of people. One of the first classes Amanda attended with her Mentor, Suzy Nece, she said “Yoga does not mean, standing on your head, it means standing together.” Since that day, Amanda’s main purpose is for all people to feel welcome, loved and at home in any yoga class. The culture that Amanda’s love and passion bring to the practice is spread to all who take her classes or go on her retreats. Her classes are sensational you literally feel your heart opening, it is a life changing experience. All she wants from each person is to put a smile on your face, even if only for a moment. In the words of Suzy Nece,

"Life is serious enough, yoga most definitely does not have to be."
