Overview

Hello!

Yoga and meditation have been in my life for ten years. After training and being certified with a Yoga Alliance school, I started teaching six years ago. I love teaching beginners and using therapeutic modifications to safely engage with injuries.

Yoga is a practice that can offer many gifts. The movements and other practices, like mindful breathing and guided meditation, bring stress-relieving benefits, no matter what practice level or time commitment.

If you would like testimonials, please be in touch. I look forward to helping you on your journey with Yoga.

Amanda Gill has taught asana and anatomy with strong, compassionate dedication to yoga since 2009. She seeks to inspire and hold the space for students to journey deeper into body, heart, and mind through powerful physical experiences. Amanda began an Ashtanga Vinyasa practice in 2005. She was honored to deepen it with alignment-focused teachers Sue Elkind and Naime Jezzeny and completed Anusara Yoga teacher training with them in 2008 (at Yogaphoria). She continued vinyasa, meditation, and chakra studies at ISHTA (Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda) with Alan Finger. Always a student, Amanda avidly studies with teachers and thinkers from all yoga traditions.

We meet. We discuss your goals with Yoga and therapeutic focus. With guided attention, you begin a sequence of postures to explore your physical abilities. I will help you to modify as needed and to develop a yoga practice that serves your body.

Your yoga is different every day. It begins with taking the seat of the student -- and learning some moves!

· Yoga · In home I wanted someone to help me with alignment and to give me some poses for areas I was trying to open up. Amanda came prepped with a routine and gave me some great alignment tips that I am still using. She also sent me an email with the routine and instructions the next morning. She was very thoughtful and did a great job.
