Amanda Freed LMT, RYT, CMT is a licensed massage therapist and certified yoga and meditation teacher with over 35 years combined experience as a healer and intuitive. Practically from birth Amanda had been keenly aware of greater levels of consciousness; "a life beyond the obvious" one might say, but being raised in a "normal" time and place and in a family that was, as were most people, concerned with worldly pursuits Amanda found life difficult, even painful. This discomfort followed her as she tried desperately to "fit in" and failed. It wasn't until her mid twenties that she decided, almost circuitously, to answer the call of spirit and delve deep below the surface of daily life where she finally found purpose and joy.
After graduating from the Swedish Institute of Massage in NYC in 1988, Amanda found herself drawn more deeply to eastern studies including yoga, meditation and various contemplative studies. Amanda pursued her passion for these deeper levels of awareness by studying with Native American tribes, academic scholars and world renowned yoga and meditation experts. She has been a highly respected yoga and meditation instructor for over 20 years, is a senior member of an esoteric meditation community and is certified to teach meditation through the Mclean Institute.
Whether it be through asana, guided meditation, Amanda's signature Mantra Meditation course, Soul Readings or her 4 or 6 month Dharma Discovery Programs, Amanda is committed to meeting each student where they are and helping them to achieve their highest expression of SELF in this lifetime.
Amanda is devoted to living a life of service and her passion is assisting students and clients in living a fully aligned life. Her method of teaching is fun, easy to learn and honors each individual as an active, thinking human being capable of exploring higher states of consciousness.
Amanda teaches public and private yoga and meditation classes, workshops and retreats and offers limited clients massage therapy by appt..
