Amanda Trevelino, RYT 500, C-IAYT
My teaching style is focused on experiential awareness; experiencing yoga as a process of inquiry and unlearning that happens from the inside out. My personal "unlearning" began at 40, when I stepped out of a hospital and onto a yoga mat. Searching for a level of healing deeper than doctors could offer, I dove into inquiries around nourishing the Self on many levels, eventually becoming a yoga therapist. My most transformative experience has been with pranayama, and I appreciate mantra and the power of nada (sound) yoga.
My initial training was in Hot Yoga in 2012, but I found a passion for its opposite, Yin. Initially, I studied Yin under Sara Phelan of Mokuleia, Hawaii, a certified teacher through Sarah Powers' Insight Yoga Institute. In other disciplines, I rely on the influence of my Kripalu and Pranakriya inspired teachers to steward the body's process of revealing and healing. In particular, Master Teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll, Dean of the Kripalu School of Yoga and Founder of Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts, taught me to see the body as a dynamic metaphor, a field of gross and subtle energy. Don Stapleton Ph.D. of Nosara Yoga Institute helped me see the body’s innate intelligence and capacity to reorganize. William Hufschmidt taught me what no words can through the practice of becoming a certified Thai Yoga Therapist.
My favorite way to unwind is hiking along the Chattahoochee, or giving or receiving Traditional Thai Massage. I love learning new things in new places almost as much as I love chocolate. I'm thrilled and grateful to get to know my Sati neighbors.
