How do I properly run anaconda python3 from git bash?

  anaconda, git-bash, python, windows

I’m relatively new to python and anaconda. I’m trying to execute the anaconda python3 version from git bash on windows. $ python doesn’t give an error but the process seems stuck and it doesn’t return the prompt.

Executing in both the windows and anaconda prompts works fine. E.g., in anaconda:

(base) C:UsersAmanda>where python

(base) C:UsersAmanda>python
Python 3.7.6 (default, Jan  8 2020, 20:23:39) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)] :: Anaconda, Inc. on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

I have added C:UsersAmandaanaconda3 to my system path.
