About the Instructors
Amanda Mays discovered yoga while living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and it quickly became a part of her life. Leaving academia for family life, Amanda turned to her yoga mat to practice self-care. Her enthusiasm for the practice is borne of her own daily existence with illness. Yoga has helped her practice resilience and experience firsthand the healing effects of yoga. Amanda received her 200-hour training at Yoga Path under Kate Suchanek, E-RYT500, following the lineage of Krishnamacharya, specifically the teachings of his latter years focusing on the therapeutic side of yoga. Amanda believes in encouraging others, in making yoga accessible for each and every student, their unique body, and limitations. Her ambition is to encourage others living with chronic illness to feel empowered and encouraged on the mat so they too can bring their practice into their daily life.
