Amanda Ree Ringnalda

Meditation, Ayurveda, & Yoga Educator. For Humans & Dogs

Amanda Ree is a Certified Vedic Educator for the Chopra Center for Wellbeing and serves as Host/Emcee for many of the Center’s live and online events. Since 2006, she has studied closely under Drs. Deepak Chopra and Dr. David Simon, and gleaned wisdom from the multitude of other luminaries who have come through the Center. She’s completed the three Chopra Center certifications (Primordial Sound Meditation, Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, and Perfect Health: Ayurvedic Lifestyle) and she holds both 200‐ and 500‐hour teacher certifications from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers.

She founded Sama Dog: Wellbeing for Dogs + Their Humans to merge her passion for spiritual living with her especially deep and soulful connection to canines, which was awakened after being saved from drowning in the backyard pool at age 3 by the family dog. She teaches classes and provides consulting to private clients on how the natural healing and lifestyle principals of Ayurveda can help dogs live better, longer lives too.

Amanda Ree lives in North County San Diego with her husband, Rene, and at least a handful of happy dogs.
