About the Teachers


Amanda took her first Moksha Yoga class back in 2009 and was hooked from day one. When she decide to do the teacher training in Montreal 2011, she had no idea how much it would change her life. Amanda continues to be inspired each and every day by fellow teachers but as well as the dedication of the students from each studio she teaches at. Since her training in 2011, she has continued to dedicate herself to learning. She has completed her Moksha Advanced training in 2012 and Moksha Flow in 2013. She is also trained in Acro Yoga, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, pre/post natal and Aerial Yoga. When Amanda is not teaching/practicing, she enjoys other types of physical activity such at Aerial circus arts, hula hoop dance and pole fitness. Travelling the world is also one of Amanda’s biggest passions

“Yoga is a way of life. It is about being your truest self in all situations. it has helped me to find myself and where i belong. Yoga is a personal journey which allows you to become aware of the things that are important to you. Through my practice i have discovered more about myself and my body and about my place in this world. It has taught me, and continues to teach me, how to let go of the things that I cannot control as well as the things that no longer serve me. It has taught me to appreciate both what I have and who I have in my life.

Every time I step on my mat, i know that i am on a journey to something new. Yoga is a place of no judgement or expectations. It is a place where I feel free to express myself through breath and movement. It is a place where i feel accepted and it instills in me a feeling that I can take with me anywhere i am in this world. I practice yoga because I love the way it makes me feel. It grounds me down and keeps me connected with who I am. Yoga has taught me patience, both with myself and the people around me. Yoga has also shown me how to be a better person than i was yesterday.” – Amanda Rae
