Meet Your BREATHING 101 Coach

Amanda Bauer

Certified Oxygen Advantage Coach, Breathing, Running and Kettlebells Expert.

As a lifelong learner and science nerd, Amanda Bauer has a strong passion to empower others and her goal is to give her clients permission to become the best version of themselves and offers a neurological and scientific-based perspective for all humans.

After studying Theater at UCLA and Greek at UW Madison, a decade passed without Amanda experiencing purposeful movement. She had started to become anxious and restless during normal training sessions and couldn’t understand why she felt so hyper and yet was performing so poorly. Looking for answers, she stumbled upon what Amanda refers to as, "the joyful sport of kettlebells and running" and quickly became a student and a follower of the Oxygen Advantage. She says,

"After adjusting to nasal breathing and understanding the science behind breath my own training flourished."

Amanda currently resides, teaches classes and private clients in Madison, Wisconsin. Offering services both virtually as well as in person through Forest Coaching and Studios.

Amanda specializes in coaching recreational runners as well as any client looking to bring ease and comfort to their everyday lives.

Whether you are 17 or 87; pain, injury and fatigue are not inevitable outcomes of sports or the trials of your life.

Applying functional breathing techniques and getting back to the basics of movement are just a couple of tools that I teach to guide my everyday athletes back to a life of happy, comfortable movement.

Bottom line - if you are having trouble catching your breath walking up a flight of stairs, or if you’ve hit a plateau in your running career, Amanda can help you Breathe Better to Do Better.
