Testimonials of past Educational offerings in 2021

Your Digestion May 2021

Great information that was broken down to an understanding level.

Amanda spoke very well about the body and made connections to my actions that I can physically feel. This is a great class to learn about your body and how to better take care of it by what we eat and how we move as humans in a very restrictive world.

I loved the 3D anatomy diagrams, keep using those!


Your Digestion May 2021

I love the passion and excitement Amanda has for all things gut health and her super clear explanations, really loved the skeleton vest, it was super helpful when watching the massage demonstration. This class was super informative, and I would recommend to anyone interested in gut health, especially IBS.


Your PeriMenopause July 3rd 2021

I really appreciated hearing Amanda's personal experiences with her journey and hearing where the other participants are now in their own journeys. My biggest moment of inspiration was peppered though-out the course...which allowed me to start changing what I have been told about peri/menopause and embrace it as a rite of passage into a very profound stage of life. The diamond/jewel analogy really brought that home for me.

I am really REALLY grateful that classes are being offered virtually. It is such a blessing to be able to learn & connect from anywhere. I hope that this always remains a part of the ATC teaching approach.

This course helped me to re-establish my foundational understanding of peri/menopause and I now feel like I can continue to learn more with curiosity, intellect, and desire rather than fear, shame, or grief.


Your PeriMenopause July 3rd 2021

I find the whole course inspirational and informative. I particularly found it very interesting to learn about the position of the womb and its ability to clean itself during menstruation. I think it explains some menstrual difficulties I have. It was also very interesting to hear about the benefit om Yam. Amanda was both inspiring, supportive and knowledgeable.

I found this course very enriching to my perimenopausal journey and am very grateful for the knowledge shared to help empower women through the perimenopausal/menopausal transition. The materials used were great, so were the additional information emailed after the course.

Your Abdominal and Prostate Health Sept 2021

While I often think of abdominal health as something that is more relevant to women, I was a bit surprised to learn about how men are also affected by it and grateful to have the knowledge and skills to expand my services to a wider community of folk. Thank you, Amanda! I like the variation of visuals used. Anatomy app, charts, and plush pelvic bowl. It is helpful in getting a better idea of how to visualize a system that is difficult to see otherwise.

Amanda is extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of personal experience to contribute to this topic. She is funny and gives practical real-world tools / approaches that work. I feel a lot more confident working with male pelvic / prostate health after her class!
