In her late teens, Amanda Lola began what she now knows as her "spiritual journey". It started with the idea to heal some lower-back issues through Pilates. Pilates and core strength led to yoga. After practicing for more than ten years, she embarked on teacher training with YogaWorks. Almost simultaneously, she began a phase one of the Gong Avatar training with Sotantar in Southern California where she learned among other things, kundalini yoga, meditation, and the sacred sound of the gong.
Currently in the third phase of this training, she works as a teacher of young children during the day and focuses on her business, Lola Yoga, where private and group yoga and gong meditation sessions are offered. She continues growing and learning and walking the path towards self-actualization.
