16 years ago Amanda Palermo met yoga when she walked into her first Ashtanga yoga class. Initially drawn to Ashtanga’s elegance, she was quickly fascinated by the practices unyielding challenges. She then spent many years exploring various styles of yoga, following her intuition along a path that’s inspired in her an ever growing curiosity and passion for the practice.
Amanda is a 200 hour E-RYT through Corepower Yoga in Southern California. She has now made her way back to her Ashtanga yoga roots and has recommitted herself to the practice. Her teachers are Greg Nardi, Angelique Sandas and when she visits her native Southern California, David Milliotis. Amanda’s passion is supported each day by her greatest teachers: her husband and son. Amanda currently teaches at Ashtanga Yoga Worldwide in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Greg Nardi has studied yoga and eastern healing arts extensively since 1996. Since 1999 he studied at the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, South India. In 2004, Greg was authorized to teach by Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. In 2009 he was granted authorization level 2 by Sharath Jois.
Greg is an autodidact who perpetually studies Sanskrit chanting and indian philosophy. He counts Georg Feuerstein, Dr. M.A. Jayashree, Narasimha, and Vyass Houston amongst his influences in this field.
Greg’s view on yoga respects the indian roots of the Yoga tradition and the parampara method of transmission while making these traditions intelligible to the western practitioner. His style of teaching assists students in finding the approach to the practice that is most beneficial for them.
