“Yoga is a true form of art, and when practiced it calms the mind, frees the spirit and is a direct guide to opening our hearts. In essence, it has the power to heal and make us whole.”
-Amanda Serene Dozal
May we work with Nature to understand the Soul-
“In 1997 at the age of 18, I began diving deeper into spiritual and occult practices during my pregnancy. Without ever stepping foot into a ‘yoga’ studio, I knew a spiritual path was calling and I’ve never stopped listening to that call to serve. My lifes work reflect a love, devotion & passion to the ancient science and art of yoga. I am continually finding inspiration from this mundane life , the mystery and truth of nature, my teachers, my studentship, the lineages and practices that are deep in my heart. I am honored to share this path with you all. My deepest guru gratitude to my son Bear and my grandchildren Nature and Nova. You have shown me unimaginable beauty. OM tat sat om”.

She immediately recognized yoga as a path towards more vitality and joy in her life, and has practiced with devotion ever since.

Always a lover of nature and beauty, Seren is inspired by the ocean, dancing, traveling to foreign lands, and the way the stars move through the sky.
I am deeply devoted to the practice of yoga and meditation. It has been the vehicle to get me through every challenge and to accelerate the path towards all my goals. I love these practices and have enjoyed teaching them for the past 3 years.
The Kundalini yoga classes I teach can range from active and intense to subtle and blissful. We warm up, get moving, relax with a healing gong savasana and go deep into meditation. Anyone can dive in and get a lot out of these practices. Words can’t do it justice, you gotta experience it for yourself!
