Name: Amanda Sloan
What was your impression of yoga before you took your first class? That it was something that would probably be very beneficial for me to do, but that I wouldn't be flexible enough to do it.
What did you think of it after that first experience? That it was more challenging than I expected but brought me so much peace. I knew it was something I wanted to continue to do and learn more about.
How long have you practiced at Rebel Yoga? Since day one!
What made you choose to make Rebel Yoga your "home" studio? I co-own the studio with Brent. But we didn’t start this journey with that intention in mind. It grew into what it is now because of the community. We kept growing because the community kept growing. Watching that growth happen keeps me showing up to practice, sweat, and continue doing all the things behind the scenes to let people know the AMAZING things that are happening at Rebel Yoga.
What is your favorite section in Journey Into Power? Why? Equanimity is my favorite section because it reminds me to stay centered and balanced, I have to let go of all the stuff in my head.
What is a quote that inspires you? Do Good Anyway by Mother Teresa. Look it up!
What is the best compliment you've ever received? That my strongest asset is integrity.
What is something you will never do again? Eating three donuts before taking one of Brent's Rebel Flow classes.
If you could make one rule that everyone had to follow, what would the rule be? Live by the Four Agreements.
What is something you enjoy, but rarely admit to other people? I watch WAY too much reality TV.
