Amanda Trevelino, C-IAYT -- Amanda's teaching style is focused on experiential awareness. She considers the yogic path a journey of compassionate inquiry and endless unlearning. Her primary teacher is Yoganand Michael Carroll, in the Kripalu lineage.
Amanda appreciates various styles of yoga, and specializes in Yin. She began her study privately with her first teacher Sara Phelan of Mokuleia, Hawaii, a certified Yin Yoga teacher through Sarah Powers of Insight Yoga Institute. Later trainings became available in her hometown of Atlanta through Mahapatha Yoga / Doug Johnson, a student of Paul Grilley. Finally, she found her teacher in Josh Summers / Summers School of Yin Yoga. She’s explored many perspectives, and was most inspired by Gil Hedley’s (Integral Anatomy) advice to working with fascia, “look for the unity.” Amanda appreciates Yin as a practice of unity, one that sometimes invites us to witness parts of ourselves that have been disconnected or forgotten. And for that, she relies on the influence of her Kripalu and Pranakriya inspired teachers. In particular, she appreciates the hands on understanding of fascia and channels of energy gained through Thai Bodywork Certification; the understanding of the body’s innate intelligence and capacity to reorganize as taught by Don Stapleton Ph.D. in Self Awakening Yoga; the perspective of the body as a dynamic metaphor, a field of gross and subtle energy as taught, many times in many ways, by Yoganand Michael Carroll.
