Amanda was born and raised in Costa Rica, with family roots in Buffalo, NY. Amanda accomplished her studies in art & design in Buffalo, NY, where she also completed her first Yoga training with Evolation Yoga in 2010. Her first love with yoga began after her first Bikram yoga class. Amanda continued her yoga studies into other yoga disciplines such as Vinyasa, Yin, yoga for Kids and Vipassana meditation.Amanda has many years of experience teaching  and practicing yoga in Buffalo, NY and at different yoga studios in the United states.

Amanda recently moved back to her home country Costa Rica after living in Buffalo, NY, where she felt a call to be back closer to the rain forest and wildlife. Shortly after moving to Costa Rica Amanda met her partner Ian who lives in La Fortuna. When Amanda moved into the town of La Fortuna, she discovered there was no place to practice yoga, and knew this was her calling,  to opened La Fortuna Yoga, the first certified yoga studio in town.

Amanda is also a passionate artist, a textile & graphic designer. She hopes to be able to share both of her passions with those who walk into the studio as a way to inspire others to pursue their dreams and explore their true inner selves. Creating a synergy between her art and yoga experience.


Amanda hopes to inspire all those around her to explore the benefits of yoga and together heal past injuries and relief your mind and body from stress. Her teaching is focused on healing scar tissue, exploring the body in a holistic way and rooting deeper into your own Self.
