Manifesting Your Best Life Course Guide
Amanda Ringnalda is a Vedic educator at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing in Carlsbad, California, and serves as a host for many of the Center’s large live events. She has studied closely under Chopra Center co-founders, Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. David Simon, and gleaned wisdom from many other luminaries. She has completed three Chopra Center teaching certifications (Primordial Sound Meditation, Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, and Perfect Health: Ayurvedic Lifestyle). She has also completed both the 200- and 500-hour yoga teacher certifications from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers.
Amanda’s first yoga class in 1996 inspired her with a deep recognition of these timeless teachings and a desire to spend the rest of her life practicing and sharing them in order to help others find what she had found—a truly peaceful and love-filled life. Another way she expresses that intention of purpose is in her leadership role as the Chopra Center’s vice president of Client Services and Operations.
