Charlotte Pizzella

I was brought to Wild Mountain Yoga Center and Amanda Serene Dozal at the age of 16 in an effort to heal standing patterns of self-harm. At that young age I was deeply struck by the power of the practice, and by the home I found within the walls of the studio.

After graduating from UC Berkeley in the fall of 2014, I decided to return home and undertake Amanda’s teacher training instead of continuing on to law school. I was pulled back by the sense of foundation and safety I felt in the studio.

It is the remarkable change in my fellow students and myself that has inspired me to teach and serve the Wild Mountain community. I aim to make my classes upbeat, accessible, safe, and fun.
