Yoga at Desert Vista High School
At Desert Vista, we are very proud of our YogaAlliance credentialed program, lead by our incredibly talented Amanda Goe. In her class, Ms. Goe teaches her YTT yoga students to not only be good students, but good instrucors themselves. Several of her students go on to be certified Yoga Instructors by the time they graduate from Desert Vista.
More about Ms. Goe:
I have been teaching in the Tempe Union High School District, specifically Desert Vista, since 2005. I studied Communications and Nutrition and Dietetics at The University of Arizona, earned a Masters Degree in Cross-Categorical Special Education, studied Acupuncture at IICM in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and completed my 500-hour yoga teacher training and 100-hour Reiki Master teacher training at SWIHA in Tempe, Arizona. I am a Registered Yoga Teacher with YogaAlliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School. I am also a Reiki Master Teacher (RMT). I am a certified CPR, First Aid, and AED instructor through The National Safety Council. I am certified to teach Hatha Gong classes. Additionally, I have my Yoga Gangster certification (updated to Connection Coalition/ focus on "at-risk" youth) and Certificate of Completion in Vinyasa Krama from Srivatsa Ramaswami School of Yoga/Loyola Marymount University.
In addition to teaching Yoga for Fitness, Advanced Yoga Philosophy, Advanced Asana, and Honors Advanced Studies with an emphasis on Sanskrit, Vinyasa Krama, or Comparative Philosophies, I am the lead Mindfulness Instructor at Desert Vista High School, lead the Sustainability Committee, and serve on the Site Base Committee.
I began my Masters of Arts in Yoga Studies through Loyola Marymount University in July of 2019 and I am learning such a wealth of information and wisdom.
I love to travel and have been outside the U.S. to Sweden, England, Netherlands, France, Macedonia, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, Italy, Kuwait, U.A.E., Bahrain, Hong Kong, and Thailand.
