About Amanda Stivers

Hi! I’m Amanda! I obtained my 200-hour registered yoga teacher certificate in Hatha Yoga from the Temple of Kriya Yoga in Chicago, IL in June of 2012. I started practicing yoga in 2006 at a time when I felt everyone else had found their dharma (life’s purpose), but I was feeling lost, anxious, stressed, and unsure about my direction in life. A therapist suggested that I give yoga a try to calm my anxiety and stress. I then started practicing yoga and never looked back!

 I discovered that my yoga practice brought clarity to my life. Yoga raised my mind and body awareness and made me feel rejuvenated, empowered, and ready to take on the world! It gave me the tools to stay focused, centered, and calm in my body, mind, and spirit. I sleep more soundly and have more confidence since starting to practice yoga, and I love how I feel calm yet energized after a yoga class. Yoga has been such a wonderful addition to my life that I want to share my practice with you. I want to help you feel great in your body, mind, and spirit, as well.

Here on my website, I will be sharing yoga and yoga related material, but I will also be sharing some of my other passions in life, like making vegetarian meals, crafting, and pictures of my greyhound Lucy. Thank you so much for visiting my website! I hope you stick around for a while, learn something new, get inspired, and have fun! The light in me honors and salutes the light with in you.
