Once successfully passing our 200-hour yoga teacher training program, you will be given the direction and the necessary steps needed for you to register with Yoga Alliance as a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher.
Full participation is required to complete the program. This is a content-heavy curriculum that requires your commitment to seeing it through until the end. We do understand that life happens and time may be missed due to emergencies, our make-up policy requires you to schedule missed hours through a private session(s) with your trainer at an additional cost.
All assignments, quizzes, and independent studies must be completed and evaluated by the lead trainer.
Once requirements are complete and tuition is paid in full, students will be acknowledged as a NU LEVEL yoga teacher. Our yoga teacher certification is designed to fulfill the requirements necessary to become a Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher (RYT). Graduates can apply for Yoga Alliance certification once they have received their NU certificate.

My yoga journey began while searching to fill a void after retiring from a childhood of competitive dance. For me, yoga was love at first breath. I love the balance of backbends and forward folds, stretching and strengthening, work and relaxation. Yoga is the full package for me! I believe yoga is for every body type and level, whether it’s your 1000th yoga class or your 1st. My goal is to have the practitioner explore their body, safely finding their own edges, both physically and mentally.
Amanda gravitated to yoga as a way to cope with a wave of debilitating anxiety in 2014. As a professional dancer and choreographer, the physical practice resonated immediately. It was liberating to move in a non-performative way and there were clear gradual improvements in alignment, mobility and awareness as a result. Mentally, things seemed way more spacious. Amanda completed her Yoga Teacher Training in 2015, and has continued to lead classes locally and internationally. Her teaching style is always evolving, but is forever playful and intuitive.
Growing up immersed in gymnastics and dance, I've always been intrigued on how the body looks, feels and preforms. I have studied the mind body connection through: Musical Theatre, obtained a Natural Health license majoring in Aromatherapy and Reflexology, Reiki Master certified, Baptiste Power Yoga trained, Level 3 Thai Bodywork, and currently becoming a Registered Massage Therapist by 2020. As a Holistic therapist, I believe studying the body as a whole is the only way to find balance and source out the core issues that cause discomfort or dis-ease.
Fourteen years of practice, four years of teaching, and a lifetime of learning: that's me in a nutshell, your friendly neighbourhood yogi. I've taught in the GTA and Southeast Asia teaching Hatha, and have grown my yoga through shifting towards a practice that encourages being in stillness and managing self-distraction. Yin and Restorative teaches us how to balance the hectic pace of the outside world with the quiet of our inner selves — a concept that is challenging, sometimes uncomfortable, but altogether powerful and rewarding.
