Founder and Animal Expert at Sama Dog

Founder, Sama Dog

Amanda Ree is a certified meditation teacher, 500-hr yoga Hatha instructor and Ayurvedic health practitioner since 2001. Her spiritual studies started at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers and in 2006 she began working and studying closely under Dr. Deepak Chopra. As a lead educator, event host/emcee and leadership team member at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, Amanda has had the great fortune to learn from many of the world’s leaders and top experts in health and wellbeing. Amanda was born with an innate soul-connection to animals, and this bond was deepened at three years old when she was saved from drowning in her backyard pool by the family dog. At age ten, Amanda persuaded her family to purchase the neighborhood pet store in Lake Tahoe, California, where she served as the smallest yet most knowledgeable employee for the next decade.
