Shivatree Yoga

About Amanda & Shivatree Yoga

Amanda is based on the Big Island of Hawaii, which is a unique location identified by the dynamic contrast between its landscapes (from desert to snow and from ocean to lush rainforest!) and known for its healing energy. Amanda has an intuitive, down-to-earth approach to teaching, practicing, counseling, and exemplifying yoga through her lifestyle and is known for her ability to establish a strong community.


Ayurveda is a complete approach to mind-body health through daily and seasonal self-care rituals. This 5,000 year old science follows three main principles: 1. Like increases like. 2. Opposites bring balance. 3. The further you stray from nature, the more likely disease is to arise.


Amanda will be offering monthly workshops on Oahu, and regularly at Yoga Centered Studio & Boutique in Hilo. Workshop topics range from alignment to yoga nidra and everything in-between!


Shivatree Yoga Retreats offer perfect opportunities to explore the full realm of yoga: asana, pranayama, mantra, and meditation, and to then bridge the gap between your practice and your life for greater harmony, mindfulness, and contentment.

CommUNITY Testimonials:

Read the reviews of some of our Customers.

"I appreciate that you always look out for my safety during my practice [healing from an injury], thank you for caring."


"My down time at home is always accompanied by at least one distraction - phone, TV, email, Facebook, podcasts - and often several at the same time. Shivatree Yoga's retreats allow me to completely unplug and be alone with my thoughts and breath. It's such a rare experience that I jump at the opportunity. The retreats are rejuvenating and relaxing and 100% worth it!"


"I feel more connected and energized after completing the 5-day cleanse! It was easier than I thought it would be."
