About Amanda

Amanda was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. She is a happy alumna of Barnard, the women's college of Columbia University, and holds a BA in Religion. One week after graduating, she discovered the North Shore of Oahu, HI, and knew that she would one day come back for good. For the next 1.5 years, Amanda worked in Manhattan doing the “corporate grind.“

In October 2015, Amanda began her teaching certification at one-of-a-kind Laughing Lotus Yoga School in Manhattan. In December 2015, she took the leap and finally returned to her heaven on earth: the North Shore - and then walked into Open Space Yoga. Open Space is the only studio in Hawaii at which she teaches weekly classes, and when you come to class, you will understand why!


 Amanda now teaches at all three Open Space locations, and also teaches classes for guests of Kalani Hawaii Private Lodging on the North Shore of Oahu. She takes time and care to incorporate opening meditation and storytelling; teach empowering and confidence-building postures; and guide each student in being honest with oneself and one's body. Amanda offers (optional) aromatherapy, careful assists in savasana, and a tried-and-true nonjudgmental voice.
