The path of healing brought Amanda to yoga. After spending her teens and early twenties immersed in the study of herbalism, aromatherapy, energy medicine and shiatsu massage, Amanda landed on her mat. Since 2009 she has completed 1000+ hours of training in a variety of yoga methods. Amanda’s love of learning also led her to become a certified Pilates instructor and she continues to explore movement education as a way to heal and empower both herself and her students.
Amanda comes to her mat with honesty and a sense of humour. She believes that when we meet ourselves where we’re at, we can learn to celebrate and honour the process of becoming. Amanda strives to make yoga accessible and offers her teaching as an invitation to self-exploration and inner awareness. A class with Amanda isn’t complete without a few giggles (and a lot of props!).
When she’s not leading classes in studios and on retreats, Amanda is a part-time Birth Doula, a full-time Mom, and facilitator of Yin Yoga and Modo Yoga Prenatal teacher trainings.
