Give back to your body

As the pandemic drags on, and our nervous systems are consistently responding to uncertainty, concern, and instability, the acts of reflection and movement become more important than ever. This impulse to slow down and process is mirrored by the season, as we settle into shorter days, longer nights, and a slower pace.

Join Amanda for an extended asana practice and deep relaxation. Focused on nourishing both the body and the mind, we’ll take our time warming up and building into strength, working out the excess tension with deliberate effort and breath. Next, we’ll slow down and melt into deeper stretches, designed to counteract the typical sitting and holding patterns that arise from working from home and bracing for winter. Finally, we’ll turn inward for a deep savasana to recharge and reconnect with ourselves.

Have questions? I have answers!

  • Is this an all-levels class?

Yes! Modifications will be offered for most poses, too, so you can tailor to how you feel in the moment.

  • Is this different than a normal Hatha class?

Not really – we just have more time. That means we can get into a juicy headspace, warm our bodies up thoroughly, and have an extra-long savasana.

Come Prepared

Bring your yoga mat, a blanket, and (if you have them) two blocks and a strap! Wear clothes you’re comfortable moving in, and get cozy in front of your Zoom screen.

Reviews & Testimonials

“I’ve been practicing yoga for 4+ years, but I still have soooo many questions… happily, Amanda has answers! Working one-on-one with her was a tremendous opportunity to re-focus my practice. Based on her ideas for me and my list of challenging poses, Amanda made some eye-opening small but powerful adjustments, which we immediately put into action. Just a simple shift of my standing stance brought newfound stability and flexibility to multiple poses. Amazing! One private lesson has transformed my time in all my classes, even with other instructors. And hey, it was fun, too. So glad I took the plunge. Thanks, Amanda!”

I got to learn about the specifics of my body which will help all parts of my practice.

–Adel

Amanda is funny, warm, non-judgemental and she is an excellent instructor who deeply understands her subject and knows how to explain it.

–Alix

Amanda’s teaching is so intentional. Her knowledge of alignment and ways of implementing it in class surpasses most other instructors I know. I feel safe, supported, and like I’m absolutely doing something to benefit my body and not just look good on my instagram page.

–Sara, 31, yoga teacher

I just really love Amanda’s style. She is very analytical and precise when it comes to discussing human anatomy and I enjoyed learning from her. Her cues and what to look for in the asanas we covered were descriptive and so easy to follow!
