Amica started a daily Ashtanga practice in 2006. She found the practice challenging and intense, but the method left her feeling calm and grounded. Over the years Amica has studied with many experienced teachers and inspiring senior practitioners whose wisdom, kindness and passion for this practice have lit her way. Each has played a unique and integral part in her journey. She continues to work on her own practice with daily guidance from David Robson at Ashtanga Yoga Centre Toronto and through trips to Mysore, India to study with her Guru, Sharath Jois at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute.
Amica’s teaching abilities include both traditional Ashtanga classes and vinyasa, or flow style classes. In 2007 she completed a Vinyasa training with Downward Dog Yoga Centre and began to explore the art of teaching. In Amica’s guided flow classes she aims to create unique sequences that draw from her Ashtanga background and love for movement, breath, and music. She hopes to help her students build strength, flexibility, balance, and experience all the good that can be had from practicing yoga.
Amica is excited to share and explore yoga with the beautiful community at Mula!
