Amanda Shepard, RYT500

Amanda has been practicing yoga for 25 years and teaching for the last ten. Self-care is as important to her as movement. In addition to being a RYT, she guides myofascial release using Yoga Tune Up ® therapy balls. Amanda offers alignment from her palpable interest in functional anatomy. She also enjoys deep dives into yogic philosophy and Sanskrit language. Amanda has done in depth philosophy course work with her mentor, Erika Burkhalter. Practice with Amanda incorporates many styles of asana: ashtanga, flow, yin, and restoratives. Asana choices are deliberate with options offered to keep everyone in the room, or zoom, connected to breath. Light chanting, philosophy, and the occasional “aha” moment make into the room. Amanda has mentored several teachers in training at various Orange County, CA yoga studios and has been a guest teacher trainer in 200-hour RYT programs. Amanda loves to awaken an understanding of movement that allows students to investigate deeper into themselves. “Yoga to you” is her motto. Off the mat, Amanda is at the beach as often as possible. She is mom to a human teenager and canine tween. Certifications: Yoga Alliance 200 Yoga Tune Up ®, Level 1
