"I am a 35 year old Husband/father of two and I work in the construction Trade. Amanda's approach to wellness therapy has be very helpful to me in my personal and professional life. I have become more confident, focused and can handle the stresses of everyday life with a positive approach. Thank you Amanda."
I have had the great privilege of attending both energy healing sessions and workshops facilitated by Amanda. I am ever grateful for the compassion and wisdom she delivers with everything she does. The first of such experiences with Amanda was at a Creating Confidence Workshop for Women. I have since followed up with private energy healing sessions to help me navigate through a difficult time, but those words alone don’t come close to describing the deep transformation that I feel afterward. So I will try to explain the essence of my journey now. Amanda is extremely gifted. She in turn offers the knowledge she has obtained thru her gentle and fluid words of truth and light and by light I mean a way of seeing things clearly, to have an unobstructed window of self-reflection, self-worth and deeper understanding. She has guided me along my path of seeking to become the greatest version of myself despite life's setbacks. In fact, I can say that what I initially felt were setbacks I now consider to be stepping stones. What I felt was pulling me down was actually propelling me forward. She creates a strong sense of community within her workshops, as her group events unite and empower those in attendance. I am grateful for all the support, strength and healing I gain by being in her company. I am a huge advocate of stepping out of routine for self- care. I believe it is the greatest gift one can honour themselves with along this very sacred journey.
I started my journey with Amanda ... note the word journey ... with weekly Yoga practice. I was interested in the Yoga Amanda was offering because it was just that ... practice. I was interested in experiencing Yoga, not as an exercise, but on a more deeper and connected level, on a spiritual and energetic level. Amanda is such a beautiful person. She is an empowering, spiritual, calming, inspiring, confident, powerful woman. She meets you just as you are. I am so grateful and honoured to be going through my journey with her. Now as I writing this ... I realize that was just what I had been asking the universe for in my journey women empowering women ... this is part of the reason this universe has brought us together. As I started Yoga practice with Amanda, I realized that she has so much to offer, and I had much healing to do. We started Reiki sessions. Reiki sessions have healed me on an energetic, emotional, spiritual level and again has been such a valuable part of my journey. They have really helped me come in tune with my true self, the essence of who is really am ... beyond the container of this body. I have had many ah-ha moments. I am able to trust ... trust my self, trust my path, trust the greater good. My session have helped me reach a place of self love, self care, self compassion. They have helped me give myself permission to be who I am, permission to feel, to cry (this a biggy ... I can cry now), to speak. I have learned to tune into my body, learning what is my body pain vs. what is going on around me, or what am I feeling. Getting out of my head. Learning what responsibilities, energies, "stuff" belongs to me and what belongs to others. It is pulling back the layers ... past life experiences, current life experiences. Being imperfectly perfect. Being beautiful in my own light. I have also participated in the Creating Confidence retreat and the monthly Women's Circle. It is another part of my journey. To unite with women. To heal as women. To empower each other. So as you see this is a journey ... of integrative wellness.
What a wonderful time we had yesterday morning!! It was beautifully facilitated. We were nurtured and supported from beginning to end.
Amanda’s Creating Confidence workshop was a game changer for me, honestly. It was empowering, emotional and raw at times. I left a changed woman with a warmer heart, with the belief that I have the power to make myself HAPPY. She left me with tips and lessons that I use daily to feel the best in every moment. I’m looking forward to future workshops with Amanda, she is a wise, compassionate spirit! Thank you so much!

I recently had my first Reiki appointment with Amanda. I was immediately met by warm-hearted Amanda and her lovely, safe and sacred practice space. I felt this, coupled with Amanda's guidance, allowed me to sink into a deeper level of humility and vulnerability which facilitated a deeper healing experience throughout the session. I was particularly impressed with the time Amanda took to prepare the space and her intentions before I arrived. This level of attentive care was palpable and generated the sense of being deeply honoured. Amanda's presence and intentions were very clear, and her intuition, wisdom and healing transformational. Amanda is a truly gifted facilitator and healer. Deep gratitude for your gift to our community!

“I just want to say how grateful I am to have found Amanda. I came to her about six months ago when I hit rock bottom from depression. The depression was caused from an accumulation of life problems that had not been dealt with and it was interfering with the way I was functioning in my day-to-day life. The life coaching in combination with the Reiki sessions, her genuine kindness, empathy, soft securing voice and advise, has helped me gain back my confidence and move forward in a more positive, and appreciative direction.

"Prior to attending the Creating Confidence workshop, I was suffering from anxiety. The workshop gave me the skills, confidence and support I needed to work through the issues that I was facing and helped give me the courage I needed to start a brand new business.
"I have had the privilege of participating in several of Amanda's sessions over the last few years. Each time, no matter the topic or group dynamic, I am consistently amazed at Amanda's skill of pulling everyone's "true story" from their inner being to ensure they're truly moving forward with relevant motion. Amanda is extremely skilled at seeing past people's initial thoughts and helping them delve deeper into the true meaning. Her belief in her practise, uplifting approach and ability to create a trusting environment is truly a gift and I am grateful for each lesson she has guided me towards"
Amanda hears me without making me say aloud the painful words. Her (yoga) classes have done me the world of good with thought provoking homework to make me think and learn more about myself to help me grow.️
I have experienced the honour to have received one-one work, as well as the healing journey of Chakra Dance with Amanda.
Amanda provides her yogis with a comfortable environment to perform the purest type of yoga, allowing each of us to connect with each other in a respectful, warm, thoughtful, yet challenging class. She creates a safeness, allowing each of us to perform to the best of our ability. Amanda exudes what I interpret a yoga class to be! I leave feeling fresh and loved. She reaches into my soul and helps me in ways she will never know! Namaste.
Amanda has been integral in making my transition to my new home and province a supported one. Amanda's class is therapy for my body, mind and spirit. She is a bright warm loving light who challenges us physically while reminding us to be kind and loving to ourselves. I look forward to every class as I know I will feel more balanced and at peace when I leave.
Amanda, you are a wonderful Yoga guru and your kindness and knowledge have been so helpful to me in my journey of healing! Thank you! Looking forward to your wonderful classes and events!
I’m truly grateful to have experienced this magical day with you and the rest of the ladies. My overall experience was life changing. You put immense time, energy, love and compassion into creating such a sacred space and experience. I felt safe, gently guided and supported to share my true self and my story. I really enjoyed the group activities and feeling the love and support from the other women.
