Who are the instructors?Amanda Collins: Amanda Collins is the founder of the International Feng Shui School, which is a certification-training program. Born and raised in Ireland, she has studied with leading Feng Shui masters from around the world. Amanda trained with renowned masters in China at the Compass School Feng Shui, where she studied Black Sect Tantric Buddhism, Land Form, and Traditional Feng Shui.

Alina Cruz: Alina’s love affair with Feng Shui is rooted deep in the energy work that she has been doing for the last 15 years. As a reiki practitioner and yoga teacher, she has been helping others learn to balance their personal energy in order to achieve a healthy, whole, and contented state of being. Once she was introduced to Feng Shui, she realized that this was the missing piece in creating a harmonized life and began studying it right away. Several years after beginning her studies, she completed her Feng Shui certification with the International School of Feng Shui. She now gratefully practices Feng Shui and shares her joy by helping others learn how they can do the same. Having been born in Ecuador, and having grown up both in the United States and abroad, she is bilingual and bicultural, and enjoys teaching in both English and Spanish.
Nicole Seidlitz: Nicole’s love and passion for Feng Shui started before she even knew about it. From an early age, she enjoyed decorating and arranging rooms in the house because, as her family notes, “she always paid attention to details in a room to ensure that the space ‘felt good.’ ”As a deeply intuitive person, she has been called on to practice different types of healing modalities throughout her life. Completing her yoga teacher training accelerated things and guided her to formal education and training in Feng Shui practice. It was divine timing, and she immediately recognized that it was one of her deepest passions. Her life had major shifts after implementing only a few of the tactics she learned during the first days of training. This turned her awareness, sharper than ever, to the impact that our living environment has on our lives and well-being. Inspired to help create more harmony in the world, she is honored to now share her knowledge of Feng Shui and help people all around the world live happier, loving, and joy-filled lives. Born in Ecuador and raised in Chile, Nicole now resides in California and loves traveling the world to teach Feng Shui in both Spanish and English.
