Gentle Somatic Yoga Teacher (Levels 1, 2 & 3)
Amanda’s background includes working as a secondary school teacher and a Raja Yoga meditation practitioner and teacher. She trained in The Nia Technique and completed trainings in Nia with Black Belt training in 2014. In addition to this dance based technique, she also trained as a Nia 5 Stages teacher – a floor-based somatic approach to movement using the developmental stages from embryo to walking. In 2012 she trained in Aerial Yoga and set up Aerial Yoga Leeds, teaching regular classes and beginners workshops until she left in 2017.
Alongside Nia and Aerial Yoga, Amanda caught the Somatic ‘bug’ and trained first with Essential Somatics as a Movement Coach in 2014 and 2017, and in addition, trained as a Gentle Somatic Yoga teacher with James Knight completing Level 3 in 2018. Her latest development along with David Fleming, is Somatic Meditation, influenced by Reginald Ray and Stephen Gilligan.
Amanda currently lives in Brecon, located in Wales, UK. She regularly travels and teaches GSY workshops, as well as offering Aerial Yoga Certifications.
