AMANDA BRYANT first came to yoga because she felt exhausted and overextended. She loved the peace and clarity yoga gave her and has been practicing ever since. In 2009, Amanda enrolled in Moksha Yoga Center’s highly respected teacher training program and obtained her certification upon completing the year-long training. She is very thankful to have had the opportunity to study with teachers like Daren Friesen, Daylene Christensen and Gabriel Halpern. In her own teaching, Amanda treasures the ability to share the centered feeling yoga gives her with others. She enjoys watching her students find the ability to focus inward and rely on themselves for inner peace and strength. If nothing else, she wants to be able to give everyone a moment to breathe, sit tall and focus, leaving the often stressful aspects of life outside of class. She believes that in an often-overwhelming world, the simple act of slowing down and taking a full, well-intended breath can work wonders for any soul. Amanda teaches a variety of classes as well as more intensive workshops that always have a concentrated focus. From week to week, she chooses an area of the body or theme and structures her class around that concept or function. In doing so, she encourages her students to spend an hour concentrating on a single element that they may neglect in their day-to-day lives. You will leave Amanda’s class feeling focused, relaxed and rejuvenated.
