Amanda is the owner of Prema Yoga Brooklyn, where she teaches weekly Vinyasa flow classes as well as private/corporate clients across NYC & Los Angeles. She is the creator of a program ‘Yoga on Set’ which provides weekly yoga/meditation sessions to the cast and crews of NY based film and television shoots. Currently one of Lululemon’s Brooklyn Ambassadors, she has been featured in Vogue, Origin and Mantra Magazine and holds yearly sold out retreats to such locales as the barn upstate (her own retreat center in Chatham, NY), Tulum, Costa Rica, Morocco, Peru, Australia and more.
Amanda teaches an Ashtanga-influenced vigorous yet mindful and creative class incorporating the fluidity of movement and music/chanting with heavy emphasis on alignment, breath, patience and fun. She has witnessed in her own life how creating spaciousness in her body, mind and heart and truly ‘walking the walk’ with humility has immensely impacted her relationship with herself and others. Her wish is to impart to her students the many gifts she has received through her ongoing practice and studies—a greater sense of authenticity, inner peace, strength, compassion and, most of all, service to others.
Along with owning Prema Yoga Brooklyn, she also owns the curated boutique attached to the studio, Prema Home. Her initiative, The Hummingbirds, is a group dedicated to serving vulnerable local populations in and around Brooklyn. She is also co-writing Recipes for a Divine Life—a heart book of yoga, food, prayers and photography.
She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, two amazing daughters and menagerie of rescue pets.
