Amanda completed the Svastha ‘Yoga of Krishnamacharya Teacher Training’ program in 2009 and Svastha Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training in 2010. Amanda also attended a Yoga Sutras seminar which was presented by A.G. and Indra Mohan in New Zealand, May 2010.
Amanda has also attended workshops with Mark Whitwell of the Yoga of Heart Foundation, an intensive with Ashish Bist in Rishikesh, India in 2005 and a Vedic Chanting workshop in 2009.
Amanda began practicing Hatha yoga in 2005. Over time, the importance of incorporating breath in the practice has deepened her own experience of yoga. This awareness of breath assisted with the natural birth of her three daughters Ayesha, Zara and Isla, and Amanda is now committed to helping other women connect inwardly and prepare for motherhood through the practice of yoga.
Amanda studied classical ballet for six years and has had her own interior design practice for the last 13 years.
The benefits that the practice of yoga offers each person and their lives, is the motivating factor in Amanda’s teaching. Her approach is to assist students to build a strong foundation and awareness of the connection between body, breath and mind and to develop a practice that is suitable to each individual and their situation, as it is at that point in time.
“I believe that the awareness and connection that one feels when incorporating yoga in to your daily life can be realised and enjoyed by all”
