Amanda Mays is a RYT-500 Corepower Yoga trained San Diego based instructor and owner of Pineapple Yoga. A native New Yorker, proud military spouse, and happy goldendoodle owner, her intention is to create community and facilitate connection through yoga!
We created Pineapple Yoga with the idea of OTHERS in mind. We know how hard life can be – whether it’s because of a military move or deployment, not feeling like you fit in or really belong anywhere, or that you just don’t have something that is truly yours – a space that’s your own. We wanted to create a space that was WARM, WELCOMING, and COZY. A place where we can PRACTICE together – to know and UNDERSTAND ourselves (breath + movements of the body) so well that we realize HOME is wherever we are on our mats. To be mystified by this ancient practice as we learn with an understanding that we won’t be able to know it all in 1 lifetime. To understand that when we do all of this TOGETHER, we create MAGIC.
Amanda Mays, here! I am a YRT Corepower Yoga trained San Diego based yoga instructor and CYO (Chief Yoga Officer) of Pineapple Yoga Retreats, LLC. I’m a native New Yorker, proud military spouse, and happy goldendoodle owner. My intention is to create community and facilitate connection through the practice of yoga. I stepped onto the mat in 2014 and haven’t stepped off since. I am a forever student because when I press back to child’s pose and take that first expansive ujjayi breath in, the elephant is immediately lifted off my chest. If I can share that awareness with a student even if just for a minute, I’ve fulfilled my purpose on this earth.
