Amanda joined the Curative Yoga team in December 2016, but she started as a customer back in 2009. A coworker encouraged her to take Naader’s class to help reduce her stress and constant anxiety. She never tried yoga before and could barely touch her ankles!
That first class impressed her so much that 3 years later, she completed the 200-hr Teacher Certification, then completed the 500-hr Certification and began teaching yoga at her corporate job. After 3 years of teaching part-time, she left corporate to dedicate more time to Curative Yoga.
Amanda continues to participate in the teacher training program because she will always be a student of life. She also works for Curative Yoga’s sister charity, Samaa Foundation, as a Program Associate planning fundraising events, outreach programs and marketing.
