Are you ready to cast a spell on your life?
Hi everyone, my name is Amanda Leaveck and I’m the host and creator of Science & Magic! I wanted to take a few moments to introduce myself.
My love for the human body began during my college career where I graduated with a B.S. in neuroscience and a minor in dance. In addition to my college background in neuroscience, I graduated from the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration in 2017, where I focused on the integral relationship between connective tissue and the nervous system.
Through formal education, independent studies, hands-on work with clients, and over a decade of teaching yoga and dance, I developed a deep understanding of the profound effects that our thoughts and emotions have on our chemistry and our lives. I have experienced the detrimental effects of living in a state of chronic stress in my own life, and am passionate about guiding people towards discovering their own unique paths towards homeostasis, or balance.
While it’s important to understand science, I believe it’s even more important to maintain a sense of reverence for what we don’t know. That’s where ‘magic’ comes in. Essentially, I’m a brain geek who deeply honors the inherent mystery, intelligence, and magic that lies within our brilliant human bodies.
I hope you enjoy this course, it is designed to take you through a tour of your nervous system so that you feel more ease in your body and your life.
This will look different for everyone. Feel free to move at your own pace through each module, as you will have access to the course for 8 months. I suggest spending at least a full month with each module, moving in the following weekly flow. Please keep in mind that this format is simply suggestion - if a different order/pace is working better for you, definitely do that instead!
Week 1: LEARN
Week 2: REFLECT
Week 3: APPLY
