AMANDA RILEY completed her 200 hour level yoga teacher training and is a registered and certified instructor with Yoga Alliance. Once she began practicing Baptiste power yoga, Amanda immediately saw changes in the way she felt both physically and mentally. She realized she found a workout that proved not only challenging but also one she eagerly returned to, and she was surprised to find a sense of clarity and balance in life outside the yoga studio as well. After discovering how powerful yoga can be, she wanted to share that gift with others and her community. When not on her mat or teaching others the joy of yoga, Amanda works as a counselor for adolescents at a local hospital. Whether on its own or as part of an exercise regimen, yoga can have transformational effects on the mind, body, and spirit and Amanda is excited to have the chance to empower people of all abilities, ages, and backgrounds.
