Amanda Cooley

Yoga educator and instructor Amanda Cooley has been cultivating her yoga practice and living a yoga lifestyle for over 16 years. She earned her yoga certification in 2008 and is designated with a CYS-500hr certification through The Yoga Studio College of Canada. She loves adventure and has travelled extensively. In 2010, Amanda lived at The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram in India where she immersed herself in Bhakti: the devotion of yoga. Amanda is a speaker and workshop facilitator who specializes in movement as medicine. She has lectured for several health organizations, been a guest instructor for various yoga teacher training programs and she has been a featured speaker on a number of podcast shows. In 2017, Amanda made an appearance in BIG Adventure 2017, a tourism magazine for Northeastern Ontario where she showcased the sport Stand-up Paddle boarding. She was also the first to pioneer SUP Yoga (stand-up paddleboard yoga) in her home town of North Bay. In 2018, Amanda graciously accepted an award for Enterprising Women – Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and in that same year she began to host monthly Moon Goddess Workshop focusing on the women’s health. Amanda loves that yoga can be modified and adapted to every individual no matter what stage of life. In her teachings she focuses on precision of alignment, and seamlessly cues her students into postures safely and comfortably so that all ranges of motion are taken into consideration. She offers a gentle, slow paced yoga style that incorporates deep breath work and she values yoga as a tool for rehabilitation. Amanda ran a thriving yoga studio in North Bay Ontario for 8 years which allowed her to grow and be part of a like-minded yoga community and she is now excited to take her yoga practice online so people from all over can access her teachings.
