Amanda is a dedicated Yogini with over 20 years of practice and fifteen years of teaching. She teaches weekly classes other studio which she co-founded in 2001 with MC YOGI, Point Reyes Yoga in Point Reyes, California.
Amanda met her husband Nicholas, aka MC YOGI at a yoga teacher training at It’s Yoga in San Francisco in 2000. The two fell in love, traveled to India the following year and then opened their own yoga studio inside Nicholas’ family barn in Point Reyes Station, CA. When they started out, they each worked a handful of jobs to float the rent. Amanda worked part time at her sister’s dog hotel and did freelance graphic design, and Nicholas loaded hay at his family store Toby’s Feed Barn and worked at the local pizza parlor. For the first seven years of their yoga studio, they taught all of the classes, and were open seven days a week, 364 days a year, with one day off for Christmas.When MC YOGI released his first album ELEPHANT POWER, they started to get invitations to perform and teach across the country. As a visual artist, Amanda helped MC YOGI to create a visual show that they could preform live to go with his unique style of yoga inspired Hip-Hop. It was a mash up of sacred Indian art, Bollywood, graffiti and vintage breakdancing footage from the 80s. As artists and yogis, they continue to travel, teach, and perform together all over the world.
