RADICAL coaching for mamas who want more PEACE + JOY

I share free resources in the form of 📃 articles and 🎙 podcast episodes (coming soon!). I offer a 🦄 3-month coaching program (that will rock your world), a membership (that's SUPER inspiring) and workshops 🙌 that will bring you to your knees, they are sooo good.

Who runs this ship?

Glad you asked.  That would be me -- Amanda Upton!

Very nice to virtually meet you! 

I believe...

...all mothers (including YOU) deserve care, love and attention modeling self-empowerment, self-love, and inner value to our children.
...a mother who loves and cares for herself is NOT selfish. She is powerful and empowering. 
...we are better together and helping each other will allow us all to THRIVE, not just survive.

If this lines up with what you believe too, keep reading!

My Story

About 17 years ago, while taking a movement class, I felt (for the first time) a deep connection to myself and to my potential. This was profound for me because up until this point I had felt numb, lost and unsure of who I was or what I wanted.  This moment of clarity created a spark of possibility and so I followed it.      

I immersed myself in learning and then teaching practices that promoted a deeper connection to self and elevated well-being.  This led me to 15+ years of teaching yoga classes, leading workshops and retreats as well as developing the most successful yoga studio in Southern Vermont.

For the last 6 years, since I had my daughter, I have turned my attention toward mamas and creating more awareness, programs and support for daily self-care.  I have helped mothers:

✔️ Create a sustainable, personalized and revolutionary self-care practice.

✔️ Learn how to listen and respond compassionately to their body, mind, and heart.

✔️ Overcome obstacles and old beliefs that get in the way of daily self-care.

✔️ Reunite with their creativity, peace and joy.

I’ve now been fortunate to bring this unique blend of mindfulness, movement and creativity to mamas across the country through my online classes, programs and Radical Self-Care Membership.


I believe...

Radical Self-Care is not indulgent; it’s essential to your health and well-being.

And you, my friend, deserve this kind of care, not because you are a mother and wear many hats, but because you are a human being with human needs.  Your birthright is daily radical self-care.

You might feel that you don’t have the time, energy or support for a daily self-care practice - but it is possible and I’ll show you how.  Through mindful movement, daily guidance and coaching, you’ll find your way.  And you’ll have me and a community of mothers supporting you on your journey!
