Amanda Boboltz’s yoga journey began in 2003 amongst a class of fifth graders on an Indian Reservation in South Dakota. It moved her deeply and planted a seed in her mind that came into fruition in 2007, when she began teaching and passing on the lineage. Amanda completed her 200-hour teacher training at UpDog Yoga in Rochester, MI, but has been blessed to study with many influential teachers throughout Europe and the U.S.A. Her lighthearted and positive approach is refreshing, and it is not uncommon for laughter to erupt in her yoga classes. She challenges students to tap into their own innate body wisdom, and really come to know their inner teacher. One of Amanda’s greatest passions is travel, and she particularly prides herself in the years she spent teaching, translating, and pioneering a yoga movement in a small Austrian city where she lived for several years. She also enjoys spending time with her two nephews, lazy boat rides with her boyfriend, and all things music. She has immense gratitude for this journey that is life.
