Lesson Details

Yoga

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
For six years, I have enjoyed meeting my students wherever they are with their yoga practice, from complete beginner to someone looking for an invigorating practice to those seeking restorative yoga. I have taught all ages, in studios and college campuses. Some of my clients look to yoga for a way to balance their other intense, physical activities.

We can talk about what you hope to learn and design our lesson accordingly.

I look forward to meeting you!

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.

ps. Here's the official bio:

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.

Loved working with Amanda, definitely will continue to work with her. She was very professional and taught me yoga techniques along the way.

This was my first encounter with yoga, and Amanda made it very accessible and non-threatening. I will definitely continue.

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.
