Amy Q. – Yoga Instructor

Starting my wellness journey well over 8 years ago, I first turned to healing practices such as yoga to help deal with the chronic pain I was experiencing within my physical body. Upon the realization of the deeper healing that was happening within I became hooked. During my BSc at the University of Alberta I enjoyed studying earth sciences, psychology, business and select topics from the Arts faculty which have helped to shape my current philosophies around healing, the natural world and the power of the mind. I completed my 200 hr yoga teacher training in the spring of 2017 with the Sattva School of Yoga. Since then, I have taken numerous workshops to deepen my understanding of how I can better serve my students and clients. All yoga sessions focus on developing alignment, strength and connection between the body, mind and breath, an invaluable tool for any health and wellness journey.

I’ve always liked problem solving and understanding how things work. I find the interactions between the muscles, fascia, brain… fascinating; how an issue in the feet can create pain in the back, tension in the shoulder can trigger a headache, or stress can upset the stomach. 

My goal is to find and treat the root of the problem rather than just the symptoms, and get you back to living pain-free. You’re not you when you’re achy!
