What students are saying about Amanda's Classes

I've been going to Amanda's class this year and I love how she offers several options for every move we do.
It makes everyone feel comfortable no matter what their experience level or ability is! Going to her class weekly has helped me build strength and flexibility, while also giving me a chance to destress and relax at the end of a long day. It's the best way to end my Thursday!

Amanda has a wonderful ability to adapt the class to the people that are actually in the room as opposed to delivering preconceived or rote asana sequences. She is a warm and inclusive teacher.
