Amanda Broeder, Children's Book Publisher

Yoga has always shown up for me at times when I needed it most. I started practicing regularly in 2011, after the birth of my daughter; it was a place, time, and community of inclusion and self discovery. After moving from Massachusetts to Oregon, I decided it was time for me to show up for my yoga. I completed my 200-hour teacher training at The Bhaktishop, along with an apprenticeship with Danielle Hanna, and the Living Yoga volunteer teacher training-- all in 2016.

I believe every body deserves to feel better, feel whole, and just feel. I love helping people feel better in their own bodies through asana, pranayama, mindfulness, and meditation. I teach foundations- level yoga to help ease tension, build strength, and learn to move in new ways. I enjoy bringing yoga to those who may not find it on their own and I have a special interest in restorative and trauma informed yoga practices, as well as teaching children.

When not practicing yoga, I run a children’s book publishing company. Though, sometimes I do both at the same time. Find me at Ripple Grove Press www.ripplegrovepress.com
