Our Story

Hey, y’all!

I’m Amanda Holland, the owner of Black Mountain Yoga. Thank you for checking out Black Mountain Yoga - I’m so happy you’re here! I am so grateful to lead this beautiful yoga studio and community.

I'm originally from Chicago, but spent about eight years in Jackson, Wyoming after college and before moving to the great state of North Carolina where I really grew into myself. I moved west to ski, and found that I love just about any outdoor adventure you can think of. Naturally, work was not my top priority. I moved from job to job trying to find something that gave me as much joy and excitement as my adventures.

Eventually, I found instructing yoga and other movement modalities was a way to share my love of movement. Finding passion in yoga was a huge surprise to me. Yoga began to translate to all aspects of my life and I found that the more I practiced, the better I felt, physically and mentally. My strength, endurance, and flexibility grew, which supplemented my outdoor adventures, and my mental clarity had never been better. This is when I knew I needed to pursue a career in yoga and movement.

It is an honor to build on the strong, intentional, and well-loved foundation of this beautiful Yoga Community. I am so happy to hold this nurturing space to align our bodies, minds, and hearts with mindful movement.

Namaste y’all!


Amanda Holland
