Amanda Hills was born and raised in Westchester New York, and has always had a passion for the movement of the body and fine arts. Amanda graduated from SUNY Purchase with a Bachelors of Art History in 2015 when she decided to move to sunny South Florida to pursue teaching yoga, fine arts/public art classes, and interior design. Receiving her 200-hour Yoga Alliance recognized Teacher Training certification from Zen Den Yoga School in Boca Raton, FL, she started teaching soon after that. Amanda has also started to explore other fields such as SUP Yoga, Mini Yogi’s, Ariel Yoga, Surfsest Fitness, and Pilates.
Raised as strong athlete, dancer, and gymnast, Amanda has continued to light her spiritual fire with movement of the body. You can find her paddle boarding at sunrise, spending time with her dog Hercules on the beach, or covered in paint at her home studio.
Amanda’s passion for physical exercise and spiritual connection started at a young age and was inspired by her mother, who was also a gymnast. Yoga helped her recover from an eight-year battle with an eating disorder, and showed her how she could befriend and love her body as opposed to destructing it.
Amanda’s ultimate goal is to “empower one person at a time to engage mind, body, and spirit,” in her yoga classes and beyond. Amanda is grateful for the opportunity to continue her education with NamaStacy Yoga Corporation’s® assistant and looks forward to paying it forward, one yogi at a time.
