Amanda Hauer

A lifelong dancer turned wellness entrepreneur, Amanda has always had a passion for movement and health. Amanda's dance background in classical ballet, modern, and Latin and ballroom lead her to discovering Pilates and all it has to offer.  Amanda first began training in Pilates as a way to enhance her dancing. She immediately discovered its life-changing benefits and embarked on her Pilates certification so that she could share her passion with others. Currently, she works with a vast array of Pilates students: dancers, athletes, pre and post natal women, clients with injuries, scoliosis, osteoporosis and other conditions, and anyone else interested in enhancing their lives through Pilates and movement. Amanda finds tremendous joy in teaching an approach that so deeply benefits the body and mind.

In addition to Pilates and dance, Amanda has studied several holistic body methods such as Alexander Technique, Gyrotonics, Feldenkrais, Body Rolling, and Fascial Stretch Therapy. 

Amanda’s passion for wellness grew after she had her son, when she decided she wanted to help people beyond just the moment aspect, and became a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Amanda loves creating a holistic and integrative approach to helping her clients achieve their ultimate wellness goals.
