After a health condition in 2003 put her out of work, she realized it was time for a change, both mentally and physically, so she decided to finally pursue Pilates as a career. In 2004 Amanda received her Pilates certification through Body Kinetics, under master trainer Carol Appel. Over the years, Amanda has expanded her Pilates repertoire with many workshops and seminars, and has taught at multiple Pilates studios throughout San Francisco. Amanda has specialized training in Pre and Post/Natal Pilates through Stephanie Forster, and obtained Booty Barre training with Tracey Mallett. Amanda hopes to help others find the same benefits that she has found in improving both body and spirit, resulting in a healthy and fulfilled life.
