The Movement Temple was founded on October 2020 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with the love and generosity of her late husband, David "Hans" Schoenburg.
Amanda has taught in numerous elite studios over the past 9 years, from Body Evolutions (NYC) and Physical Equilibrium (NYC) to San Francisco GYROTONIC® (San Francisco), The Olympic Club (San Francisco) and Fitwise Pilates (Bay Area). She has worked with all body types from professional dancers, personal trainers, physical therapists to post-stroke, post-surgery and neurologically challenged clients.
As a passionate mover, Amanda loves to rock climb, hike, do aerial arts, acro-yoga, ski, snowboard, surf, and it all began with her passion for dance. Born and raised in Singapore, Amanda began her training under a full-time scholarship at Dance Circle Studios in 2007, where she honed her skills in modern and lyrical jazz, ballet, tap, hip-hop, salsa and flamenco. She went on to further pursue a formal education in dance at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts Singapore and graduated magma cum laude from the dance conservatory at SUNY Purchase in May 2012.
When diagnosed with scoliosis from the age of 13, Amanda took her first pilates session with machines to help her learn how to cope deal with her spinal imbalance, by gaining great stability with core strengthening exercises. She later found Gyrotonic exercise in Manhattan, NYC, and fell in love with this expansion system that brought her strength and flexibility to a whole other level she never thought she could achieve. Today, Amanda is a certified GYROTONIC® pre-trainer and GYROKINESIS® trainer, and apprentice pilates trainer. She incorporates her vast wealth of knowledge for movement in her teachings.
