What I do I teach Candlelight Restorative Yoga at Berkshire Yoga Dance & Fitness. This practice of stillness has led me to becoming more aware to what resonates and inspires me. Meditation is part of my daily life.  Creating art has been become a form of meditation, especially when making; mandalas, doodles, and paintings. My creative expression has  grown into me to creating an Adult coloring book. How I got here Crazy, Heartbreak, Healing, Rebirth.Short story- I found myself; 25 heartbroken, injured, and lost. I decided to go on a journey of self-discovery through yoga. I slowing began to pick up the pieces and started to build a model of myself that I Love. To get to a place of unconditional love I had to make myself still. In stillness I found; negative patterns; of emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and belief systems. Once finding out what I didn't want  the fun part came, replacing these patterns with gratitude for what is, and constructing patterns that serve the greatest and highest good. This journey has inspired me to teach self-love, self-healing, and self-awareness; through stillness. Who I am I am what every living thing is; I am a piece of creation. We all possess a spark creation within. Everything that we seek is inside of ourselves not outside. All your desires, hopes and dreams are just waiting for you to put them into motion. My dharma is to share this knowing with every person I get to connect with. I am an artist and my life is my greatest work. I encourage you to walk with me and create your own beautiful unique creation. "What I'm looking for is not out there, it is in me"~Helen Keller The light and life within in me honors the the light and life with in you, and all living thingsNamaste

What I do I teach Candlelight Restorative Yoga at Berkshire Yoga Dance & Fitness. This practice of stillness has led me to becoming more aware to what resonates and inspires me. Meditation is part of my daily life.  Creating art has been become a form of meditation, especially when making; mandalas, doodles, and paintings. My creative expression has  grown into me to creating an Adult coloring book. The Moon is something that has always captured my attention. Recently I’ve met women who hold their own Women’s Moon Circles. Making strides to unite women rather than cut each other down is so important to me and has inspired me to create my own Women’s New Moon and Full Moon Yoga Circles. In November I will be doing a Wild Women's Circle Leader training that I'm thrilled about! I spend a lot of time in nature listening to the bioacoustics, and taking in the beautiful Berkshires. I love to travel and recently I have been given an opportunity to create;   Amanda Luna’s Peruvian Full Moon Yoga Retreat. In short, I do what I love. I don’t make excuses for having a life that I’m not happy with. I live from the heart; creating the life the I was meant to live.  Dr. Wayne Dyer once said, “We dont attract what we want we attract what we are." When I’m not doing all of these AWE-worthy things I’m hanging out with my amazing boyfriend and our pet-children Splinter and Tortuga.
How I got here Long Story- I grew up in a moderately dysfunctional family. My mother was diagnosed with mental illness when I was 4 years old and my father self-mediated to cope. Through the crazy whirlwind I found myself being a philosophical child. Staring at the clouds wondering , why are we here? That question stayed with me throughout my upbringing. Struggling to attain what you want just didn’t make sense to me, yet this what I was taught. Aren’t we all part of creation? If so why can’t we create the life we want? I went through most of adolescence and young adulthood running away from what my reality was. I was completely unguided and unprepared for college but I ended up there. My junior year in college I had my first, “Aha! Yoga moment”. I thought this is it; this is what I want to do. It took 3 years of working with Special Needs children, feeling more and disconnected to who I was, and finally my boyfriend at the time to cheating on me, to have an instant awakening. I realized that I had completely disengaged from my heart and from what I wanted in my life. Several months later I was a 200 hr Certified Yoga Alliance Instructor through The Hot Yoga Spot in Albany, Ny. The questions that I had as a child started to resonate more and more. In my training I started to realize that I can create the life I want. Through meditation I was able to peel away all the layers that my upbringing, society, relationships, and ego had created. I believe meditation is the single most important skill that I took away from my training. I needed this practice especially, because in the next couple of years I went through two surgeries that kept me from being active for almost  2 years.  I went to my first Restorative Yoga Class post-surgery, I was introduced to another level of awareness that I had experienced for only 15 minutes at a time through meditation. This time it was 90 minutes. 90 minutes of connecting with my breath, mind, body, and spirit. I had my second “Aha! Yoga Moment.” I am so blessed that this practice found me.  Several weeks later my original instructor Sherrie Howard offered to train me in Restorative Yoga. Quieting the mind and body helped me to come to the conclusion; I needed to have surgery on my shoulder. I practiced stillness after recovery. I mindfully let go of physical pain, emotional baggage. I cleaned out all the weeds of my mind. I created fertile nourishing soil and then started planting seeds of what I wanted to my life. Now I'm starting experiencing the fruits of my intentions. We are creators; I’m here to help you experience the fruits of what you want taste in your life. “Let’s forgive the past and who we were then. Let’s embrace the present and who we’re capable of becoming. Let’s surrender the future and watch miracles unfold.”― Marianne Williamson

Candlelight Restorative Yoga Class Restorative Yoga is a meditative, and rejuvenating practice. We do so much everyday this class was created to give back to your whole being. Holding poses up to 15 minutes gives students the opportunity to sink into each posture while being completely supported by props. It’s not so much that you are holding the posture, but rather the posture is holding you. Students will be guided through breathing and body awareness techniques, before we dive into postures. This awareness empowers students to encourage their body, mind and spirit to release all held tension. Designed to restore the nervous system, allowing for healing to occur throughout every corner of your body. Enjoy inviting deep relaxation, and peace within. All are welcome to practice, appropriate for all levels. *This class will return in April 2017.
About Peru The capital of Peru is Lima, which is located on the shores of the Pacific Coast. Lima is full of sandy beaches, water sports, and beautiful museums and churches. Peru is home to 31 million people, 28 individual climates, and cuisine as diverse as its landscapes. Cultures here have thrived and perished.  Peru is freckled with ruins built by the Incan Empire, some preserved and others destroyed by the Spanish Empire. A great example is the city of Cusco which was built on top of an old Incan city. The ruins aren't the only remains of ancient civilizations. In the city of Chan Chan located in the north you can still find ancient civilizations. In the south lives evidence of ancient culture, in the city of Puno at Lake Titicaca. Puno; home to the Uros people, who have lived for hundreds of years on hand woven islands made from the totorta reed. Native Peruvians are incredibly gifted at handcrafting. You will most likely see women weaving exquisite patterns for bags, scarfs, rugs. The possibilities are limitless with their exceptional skills. It's also easy to find other artisanal crafts such as; jewelry, canvas paintings, and wood carvings. The ancient ruins, towering mountains, diverse ecosystems, will without a doubt leave a lasting impression on you. Opening you to a world or what once was, but roots are still very much alive. Pacha Mama Incan goddess of the earth will grace you with her beauty. Reminding you of her power, which resides inside of all beings. Peru has a way of taking you on a journey within, no matter how far you travel to visit her. EndFragment

A train will take us back to Urubamba to settle in the Sacred Valley. An optional gratitude reflection circle will be held for those interested. Day 6.

Later at our accommodations we will build a Bonfire to add to the magic of the Full Moon Yoga Circle while being hugged by the Andes.  Day 7. Traveling to Pisac; ruins which overlook the Urubamba River. Pisac is known for its steep terraces, tight fitting masonry, and what was used as ritual baths fed by aqueducts. We will hike down the ruins into town, greeted by vendors, and smells of Peruvian cuisine. Day 8. A bus will take us to Puno.  We will experience several towns along the way including;  Checacupe, Raqchi, La Raya, and Sicuani; where we will have lunch.

Struggling to attain what you want just didn’t make sense to me, yet this what I was taught. Aren’t we all part of creation? If so why can’t we create the life we want? I went through most of adolescence and young adulthood running away from what my reality was. I was completely unguided and unprepared for college but I ended up there. My junior year in college I had my first, “Aha! Yoga moment”. I thought this is it; this is what I want to do. It took 3 years of working with Special Needs children, feeling more and disconnected to who I was, and finally my boyfriend at the time to cheating on me, to have an instant awakening. I realized that I had completely disengaged from my heart and from what I wanted in my life. Several months later I was a 200 hr Certified Yoga Alliance Instructor through The Hot Yoga Spot in Albany, Ny. The questions that I had as a child started to resonate more and more. In my training I started to realize that I can create the life I want. Through meditation I was able to peel away all the layers that my upbringing, society, relationships, and ego had created. I believe meditation is the single most important skill that I took away from my training. I needed this practice especially, because in the next couple of years I went through two surgeries that kept me from being active for almost  2 years.  I went to my first Restorative Yoga Class post-surgery, I was introduced to another level of awareness that I had experienced for only 15 minutes at a time through meditation. This time it was 90 minutes. 90 minutes of connecting with my breath, mind, body, and spirit. I had my second “Aha! Yoga Moment.” I am so blessed that this practice found me.  Several weeks later my original instructor Sherrie Howard offered to train me in Restorative Yoga. Quieting the mind and body helped me to come to the conclusion; I needed to have surgery on my shoulder. I practiced stillness after recovery. I mindfully let go of physical pain, emotional baggage. I cleaned out all the weeds of my mind. I created fertile nourishing soil and then started planting seeds of what I wanted to my life. Now I'm starting experiencing the fruits of my intentions. We are creators; I’m here to help you experience the fruits of what you want taste in your life. “Let’s forgive the past and who we were then. Let’s embrace the present and who we’re capable of becoming. Let’s surrender the future and watch miracles unfold.”― Marianne Williamson

About Peru The capital of Peru is Lima, which is located on the shores of the Pacific Coast. Lima is full of sandy beaches, water sports, and beautiful museums and churches. Peru is home to 31 million people, 28 individual climates, and cuisine as diverse as its landscapes. Cultures here have thrived and perished.  Peru is freckled with ruins built by the Incan Empire, some preserved and others destroyed by the Spanish Empire. A great example is the city of Cusco which was built on top of an old Incan city. The ruins aren't the only remains of ancient civilizations. In the city of Chan Chan located in the north you can still find ancient civilizations. In the south lives evidence of ancient culture, in the city of Puno at Lake Titicaca. Puno; home to the Uros people, who have lived for hundreds of years on hand woven islands made from the totorta reed. Native Peruvians are incredibly gifted at handcrafting. You will most likely see women weaving exquisite patterns for bags, scarfs, rugs. The possibilities are limitless with their exceptional skills. It's also easy to find other artisanal crafts such as; jewelry, canvas paintings, and wood carvings. The ancient ruins, towering mountains, diverse ecosystems, will without a doubt leave a lasting impression on you. Opening you to a world or what once was, but roots are still very much alive. Pacha Mama Incan goddess of the earth will grace you with her beauty. Reminding you of her power, which resides inside of all beings. Peru has a way of taking you on a journey within, no matter how far you travel to visit her. EndFragment
