Amanda Harding is proud to be the co-owner with Lesley Desaulniers of Prema Yoga Brooklyn where she teaches weekly Vinyasa flow classes as well as private/corporate clients across NYC & Los Angeles. Having been raised in a family of Broadway gypsies, the physicality of yoga initially became a natural progression after a lifetime of dancing leading to her advanced studies. Certified through NYC’s OM Yoga Center, she has been teaching privately for over 12 years as well as group classes at The Shala NYC, Equinox, Park Slope Yoga, Yoga Center of Brooklyn. Amanda teaches an Ashtanga-influenced vigorous and creative class incorporating the fluidity of dance and music with heavy emphasis on alignment, breath, patience and fun. She has witnessed in her own life how creating spaciousness in her body, mind and heart has immensely impacted her relationship with herself and others and her wish is to impart to her students the many gifts she has received through her ongoing practice and studies – a greater sense of awareness, inner peace, strength, compassion and joy.
