Commitment. Growth. Humility. Integrity.
When I think of Amanda - both in the context of a teacher and a friend - these are the qualities that come to mind. These are what make her an amazing human and as special of a yoga teacher as I have ever experienced in ten years of practice and four years owning a yoga studio.
She is committed to her craft and to her students. Students come to trust and even in some cases rely on teachers to help them move forward, to inspire them, to just be there. Amanda takes these responsibilities seriously and her students feel that about her. In a world in which yoga teachers sometimes feel like they are just doing a job, it's clear that for Amanda, it's a career and more...it's her life's work.
As much as Amanda is committed to her students, she is devoted to her self as well. Personal growthin her practice, her teaching, and in her relationships makes Amanda, who's already amazing every day, even more inspiring.
The greatest teachers are also the greatest students, and Amanda is a humble warrior. She seeks out knowledge and is open to change. She has probably the most beautiful asana practice I have every witnessed, yet she continues to challenge herself and build in her practice and in her life.
It's a small world, and getting smaller. This Insta-society in which we're living scrutinizes our every movement, and thankfully there are people who move with the grace and integrity of Amanda. She moves through life as she moves through her yoga practice - inspired, uplifted, and intentional. Thanks Amanda for Being You.
