Amanda K Gross is a Raja yoga instructor, anti-racist organizer, and artist. A certified yoga instructor trained by YogaRoots On Location‘s Anti-Racist Raja Yoga School, Amanda has over six years of experience teaching integrative community-based classes for students of all levels. She is interested in the intersections of multimodal healing and social justice, and particularly the role and responsibility for status quo and passing white women---like herself-- in dismantling systems of oppression. She blogs at MistressSyndrome.com and is currently working on a full-length book on that same theme. In addition, she holds an M.A. in Conflict Transformation from Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding and is in the midst of doctoral studies in Expressive Arts Therapy at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. Amanda loves hula hooping, roasting vegetables, and weaving on her rug loom.
