Amanda Osterberger

Owner / Soul & Style Mentor

Amanda is the owner of Amarah! She grew up in Camp Hill, PA and moved to the Pittsburgh area for college at California University of PA. She received her undergrad and graduate degrees in Criminal Justice and worked for many years in the field. When she had her son, Cooper, she decided it was time for a change of pace. She has always been creative and imaginative and certainly has an eye for fashion, which led her to begin her career as a fashion consultant. Amanda wanted to empower other women, just as she had been empowered by inclusive, fashionable, flattering, and affordable clothing, and for the last 7 years she has been spreading the joy that it brings. Amarah was conceived when realizing that there was a need for inclusive fitness and fashion in the area. She wanted to create a space where everyone felt welcome regardless of age, race or fitness ability. Combining her love for fashion, lifestyle, and fitness, Amarah was born. Amanda has lived in the Brookline neighborhood since 2012 with her husband, Joe, their son, Cooper and their daughter, Saylor! Their family is grateful to be able to provide a service that is very in-need here in the Brookline neighborhood. 

Melanie Ondek

Certified Instructor

Mel teaches SOULfusion and SOULstrength at Amarah. She is an ACE certified Group Fitness Instructor and Certified SOUL instructor who has been teaching since 2016. As someone who often left group fitness classes feeling ‘not good enough,’ when she became an instructor, she decided that it would be her priority to ensure that each and every student, regardless of age or athletic ability, would leave class feeling stronger and more confident than when they entered. Outside of her time at the studio, she works in city government and holds a Master’s Degree in Public Policy. She’s a Pittsburgh native, decade-long vegetarian, and currently lives in Brookline with her partner Jeff, and their menagerie of animals including 5 chickens, 2 cats, 1 dog, and 3 fish.

sierra constantine

Certified Instructor

Sierra leads Buti Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga Flow classes at Amarah. A dancer since the age of 3, Sierra studied various styles of dance with a foundation in ballet. She has been moving in some way, shape, or form her entire life until she and her husband decided to start their family. After the birth of their third child, she knew she needed to get moving again. It took a little while to become disciplined and keep a steady routine, but once Sierra was introduced to Buti Yoga she was hooked and became a certified instructor since December 2017. In June 2019, Sierra continued her movement journey by attending the Buti Sculpt+Bands Certification. Sierra is a certified yoga teacher, receiving her RYT-200 in 2020. She resides in Brookline with her husband Ed, their three children Lilianna, Valentina, and Leonardo, and their Daschund-Chihuahua mix, Jack.

Renee salicce

Certified Instructor

Renee teaches Vinyasa Yoga Flow at Amarah. Renee was born and raised in Brookline and is a lover of all things yoga and meditation. When Renee is not busy being a mom to her daughter Olivia, you can find her on the mat practicing, working on her next fun sequence, or wrapped in a blanket reading yoga books. Renee found yoga a little later in life (rather, yoga found her).  She dropped in to a yoga class at Amarah in support of a new business in her community, but found so much more -- what started as a place to practice, became more like a home. As yoga grew in her soul, she knew her next step was finding the time to go through yoga teacher training. In May 2019, she received her 200-YTT certification. Renee is always excited to bring her energy and fun new sequences to share with her students.
