Amanda is currently a Licensed Massage Therapist in the state of Kentucky (LMT) and a Certified Massage Therapist for the state of Indiana (CMT). She decided to go to school for massage therapy in 2007. She was working as a 911 dispatcher and wanted to help people more, not just on their worst days. She graduated from The Louisville School of Massage in Louisville, KY. Her training there was 750 hours. The school focused a great deal on medical and therapeutic massage. She is a big believer that massage is not just a back rub, nor is it just a "luxury" It's so much more than that. Massage can be just for relaxation or for a injury to increase range of motion (ROM) and decrease pain. She has had the privilege to work with cancer patients, some of the benefits for them was diminished stress, decreased pain, improved moods. She has always loved helping people and making a difference in their life, massage allows her to help people wind-down and take a minute for themselves. While on the table you can relax and clear your mind even if for only a hour. Using her hands as well as her heart, she helps her clients relax and bring them back to a world where life is manageable. When a client gets off her table they not only feel relaxed but refreshed and recharged. Mental and physical pain can take a toll on our body and being able to help ease this pain is why she went to massage school. She not only wants to help you recharge and relax she wants to help you take care of your body. Because it you don't take care of your body who's going to?
If you listen to your body when it whispers, you won't have to hear it scream!

Susan was born in the Summer of Love full of ambition, optimism and curiosity. She spoke her mind freely and often sought nourishment of intellectual, physical and spiritual bodies. During a rambunctious quest for inner peace and freedom from suffering, she was led to practicing yoga over 20 years ago. She savored the nectar of self-practice and guided instruction from a vast array of wonderful yoga teachers. Learning to settle quick wit and swift action blossoms her creative and philosophical nature.
As two daughters and her son grew up, both personal and professional spheres freed up time. She was led to become a yoga instructor. Susan began training with YogaFit with high regards for their instructors who supported the belief that yoga is for everyone. Their accomplished trainers travel abroad and just happened to land in the birthplace of My Old Kentucky Home – Bardstown. She completed Level 1 in August 2014 and will complete Level 5 in May 2018. She also enjoyed an incredible Mind Body Fitness Conference outside of Chicago. This amazing journey to 200 RYT included Kids, Seniors, Ayurveda and Anatomy & Alignment. Now she teaches yoga to her grandson, husband, family, friends and coworkers.
Driven to further understand universal principles led to receiving Reiki attunements. In November 2014, Susan completed level 1 & 2 in her hometown of Frankfort at Vibrant Life. Years later, she was fortunate to have a long distance energy healing to realign her scattered energies. In April 2017, she ventured to Tulum, Mexico with her husband and both accomplished master training at Kaze Therapy Space. This heightened her understanding of the chakras and flowing energy through our bodies.
Susan is so grateful her yoga practice is enjoyed as both a student and teacher. She adored teaching at the Frankfort Yoga Studio before moving in 2016 to Shepherdsville. She loves hot yoga after a challenging day as a cost accountant in Old Louisville. After recently reading an impressive story about Amanda Mattingly’s journey as a massage therapist to the Olympics in South Korea, she was curious if Amanda was interested in offering yoga. She was indeed and Susan graciously joined the team. Like rapid wildfire, they are preparing to utilize space at The Radiant Touch in Shepherdsville and share yoga with the community. Susan is fortunate to be from a large family of teachers so this expands her horizons. Her format encompasses all levels of Hatha yoga that inspires a positive experience of dynamic flow with breath awareness, safe modifications, unity and creative self-exploration along with music. In addition to a regular class, she hopes to soon offer workshops on related topics. Please join us and see what happens next.
Susan has a deep passion for continued learning about Ayurveda’s approach of living in harmony with nature and our inner beings as the key to promoting universal well-being. She appreciates everyone encountered along the path to the ultimate truth and enlightenment. NOW let’s all relax and just breathe.
"Make peace with the present moment ."
To me, good health is more than just exercise and diet. Its really a point of view and a mental attitude you have about yourself. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything.
