    A Yogic experience that focuses on the unity between mind, body, and spirit.

    An experience into self discovery.

    We are all living with some sort of pain.

    The good news is we dont have to.

    New York, New York Location

    Dave Cash grew up in New York City near Columbia University where his parents were professors of writing and literature. He majored in Religious Studies at the University of Michigan and then went on to become a pre-school teacher for two years. In 2008 he became a personal trainer at equinox, where he worked for three and a half years before venturing out on his own in 2012.

    Amanda is more than just a corrective exercise specialist.  She has had extensive training in yoga, Ayurvedic medicine, and personal training.  She knows the inner workings of body mechanics, and she's able to help people reach their fitness goals by addressing not only their physical needs, but also chakra imbalances, and other energetic imbalances that your average personal trainer doesn't address.  Amanda customizes exercise plans to fit each individual's needs.  She can operate as a weekly personal trainer, or she can create an exercise prescription for people to practice on their own.  I have worked with Amanda myself, and also referred hundreds of patients to Amanda, and I have heard nothing but glowing reviews back from them.

    Amanda has been so instrumental in getting me back on track fitness wise. It's been a challenge for me as someone who was active in the past to get going again, but Amanda has been amazingly supportive and encouraging and ass-kicking all at the same time!

    Amanda is a great trainer and really knows how to read my body! Can't wait to keep working out with her and seeing the results!

    I did a 3 month intensive with Amanda. I gotta say I'm pretty impressed, for a small, fit and fiesty girl...she kicked my butt. She put me through a lot of non-weight strength conditioning and totally got me to build a strong foundation. Every session had me sweating and exhausted, but within 30 mins after I session I felt amazing. Thanks Amanda!! Best of luck!!

    Amanda really takes the time to get to know you and set goals prior to training. She is great to work with, and really knows how to push you. Although she pushes you, she is extremely mindful that each exercise is done in safe way and in the right form. After each exercise, she asks the level of difficulty to get a sense of your abilities and is extremely dedicated to developing different types of strengths.

    Amanda isn't just pre and post natal- I've been seeing her for about a year now and i don't fit in that category! Trainers who are really engaged and passionate are very hard to find and Amanda really is that. She's knowledgeable, knows when to push you- really a cut above the rest and I've worked with many trainers in my day.

    Life is basically about your goals, your decisions, and those opportunities that decide to show up whenever they feel like it. With all of the challenges we face each and everyday this can be ridiculously overwhelming. Luckily for us, there are people on this planet like Amanda who can prepare us to be better equipped to take on the world. HeartNsoul fitness isn't your typical training service because it is so much more than exercise. It is life training. Highly recommended.
