Amanda has been practicing yoga since childhood, growing up as she did with two yoga teachers for parents. As a teacher she has being trained by her father, founder of the Pranayoga Method. Pranayoga means Yoga of Vital Energy. It does not indicate a new style of Yoga but a practice of teaching, which has grown and developed in respect of the classic tradition of Hatha Yoga and aims to improve the flux and puritication of Prana, both in the physical body and in the subtle structures which constitutes the mind.
Amanda studies, practices and teaches the whole spectrum of the sacred path of yoga and believes in a holistic and creative approach to it. She is responsible for the TTC of the Free School of Hatha Yoga Hamsa in Berlin. She is recognised by CONI (Italian Olympic Committee) as a certifed trainer of teachers.

The practice is precise and deep, creative and informed by symbolism, subtle hints of physiology and an attuned awareness of anatomy. Great space is given to warm up, proper alignment, and the integration of breath and movement. By taking the time to sense the simplicity and beauty of each gesture, we honor our ability to sense, move and breath, recovering the unity, which is the natural state of the Self, expression of the cosmic awareness which pervades all.
The B classes are for practitioners with some experience, not only in terms of flexibility and strength, but also in regard to concentration, mental attitude and introspection.
core yoga – en
A class focused on the center, the core of our physical body, designed to bring awareness and develop strength in an area of major importance for the general stability and well being of our body. Breathing techniques are introduced to develop awareness and relaxation of the deep structures; dynamic and static asanas help build up strength and stability; the use of imagery or short explanations of the anatomy of the core accompany and support the practice and the development of proprioception.
hatha and pranayama – en
Pranayama is the yogic art of breathing. ‘prana’ means ‘vital energy’ or ‘life force’, ‘ayama’ means ‘to expand’, accordingly pranayama is the expansion of the vital energy through different techniques of breath awareness and control, bandhas (locks), asanas and mudras. Pranayama enhances perception, harmonizes the pranic body (network of energetic paths), increases the level of vital energy in the body and develops a steady mind, thus being beneficial in the treatment of a broad spectrum of stress-related disorders. It also prepares the body-mind for the awakening of the chakras (psychic centers), aids in the practice of asanas, and create a solid bridge between the body and the mind, thus opening the doors of meditative state of consciousness.
This class is an exploration of the breath as a bridge between body and mind, conscious and unconscious, gross and subtle. The focus and intensity of the practice varies from class to class, always keeping a meditative and introspective atmosphere.
Please note, the classes are different during the summer schedule, Jul 15 – Aug 31.
