In August of 2008, shortly after she had her second child, Amanda became a certified spin/cycle instructor and immediately began teaching at local Downers Grove gyms. After a few years of attending occasional gym yoga classes, a friend from town recommended Amanda try hot yoga at Power Yoga on Main. The heat helped with her tight hamstrings, and she instantly fell in love. When Amanda left her first class at Power Yoga on Main in June of 2011, she knew that the vinyasa style of yoga and extremely encouraging atmosphere were the essential missing ingredients to her yoga practice. Amanda has gained strength, calmness, and relief from stress through the consistent practice of yoga.
After roughly ten years of dedicated yoga practice, Amanda finally decided to follow her dream of becoming a yoga instructor and completed her 200 RYT through Power Yoga on Main in May of 2018. As a high school mathematics teacher during the day, Amanda encourages her math students to have an open mind and have fun while learning – the same can hold true on your yoga mat. Amanda cannot wait to share her energy and passion for yoga with you!
Amanda is here to inspire you to challenge your body and your mind as you travel somewhere new and find your edge through determination and focus. Amanda looks forward to seeing you intensify your postures and rock out on your mat!
