"Remember How to Move" Classes
considers herself a Human Renovator. In her 17 years of practice
she has helped hundreds of clients
move, look and feel younger, more vibrant, more creative,
more themselves . She brings an acute sensitivity and
artistry to her work, drawing on her deep connection to nature,
her background in the performing arts, and her personal journey
of transforming her own emotional and physical pain into freedom
and aliveness. She holds an advanced degree from the
SOMA Institute of Neuromuscular Integration, is Board Certified
by the International Association of Structural Integrators,
and is trained in Visceral Manipulation, developmental movement
patterning and Nia dance fitness. Based in West Seattle ,
she offers private hands-on healing and group movement classes.
Her goal is to coax her students into deep fulfilling partnership
with their own physical nature by upgrading both hardware
(bones, muscles ,organ function) and software (creativity,
movement, energy, beliefs and habits).
unique style uses a comforting and delicate touch to sink
deeply into the root of restrictions in the body's postural
and energetic systems. It restores and optimizes flexibility,
posture, emotional balance, athletic performance, and
much more. This gentle and precise
work frees and enlivens the connective tissues that permeate
and join muscles, bones, organs, arteries, nerves, etc. Amanda
"listens" to your structural and emotional body's
"leanings" and helps it release in precise
physical ways that will generate a cascade effect throughout
your body and your life.

you know from the first moment that you are in the hands of
a top SOMA professional. Nothing about her approach is mechanical.
You really have the sense that in her hands your body becomes
a work in progress. She proceeds with the confidence and precision
of a skilled surgeon modulated by the artistic, intuitive
sense of a fine musician. Amanda has a real gift for this
work. Moreover she has a big heart and the genuine desire
to bring profound life enhancing benefits to her clients.
And at this she succeeds beautifully. I can't recommend Amanda

Like many of her clients, Amanda�s life may be considered in two parts: before and after SOMA Neuromuscular Integration. Her decade of dance and movement training and a career as a stage performer opened Amanda�s awareness to the intimate connection between body, mind and emotions; yet even given her keen insight, she was unable to break free of the clinical depression and chronic back pain she experienced for ten years. SOMA bodywork gave Amanda the key to unlock the places in her body that had been abandoned due to injury and trauma. Out of her own miraculous healing and growth, Amanda has created a fuller, more vibrant life that continues to flourish and unfold.
Her first-hand experience, as well
as her work with many clients, including children and those
with developmental disabilities, has affirmed Amanda�s trust
in the beauty and wisdom inherent in each of us. Through her
SOMA practice, Amanda invites you to consider yourself whole
and unbroken, no matter your individual challenge, and to
claim the full and unique richness of the life you are here
changed so much in my body and in my life. I do miss it very
much. It�s hard to not fall in to your old routine and Amanda
is so far away! I miss her terribly!"
