Commit to yourself this year.
Begin 2018 embarking on an individualized Yoga Intensive Program to create grounded, lasting change in your body, mind, and relationships over the course of only 7 months!
Liberate and Transform Emotional Patterns That Are Not Serving You. Deepen Your Spiritual Practice.
The 5 elements are:
Earth – transforming pride & stubbornness into the wisdom of equanimity
Water – transforming irritation & threat into the wisdom of clarity
Air – transforming anxiety & criticism into effective action / joy
Fire – transforming attachment & addiction to passion/compassion
Space – transforming numbness & ignorance into wisdom / love
When emotions are liberated we begin to touch the pristine awareness in ourselves and live in freedom and relieved of suffering. We will work through the mandala to understand what emotions are and to transcend reactive patterns of emotion and behaviour.
IS THIS PROGRAM FOR YOU?
~ Are you ready to deepen in Yoga, self-awareness & self-development?
~ Are you ready to free yourself from limiting thoughts, emotions, and behavioral patterns?
~ Do you want to study, learn, and practice Yoga & Meditation at your own speed, in your own environment, but still have access to support from an experienced, knowledgeable facilitator?
~ Are you looking for more personalized support on your spiritual path?
~ Want to learn more about Yoga but a Yoga Teacher Training Program isn’t right for you?
~ Looking to gain insight on and untangle yourself from cyclical patterns repeating themselves in your life and relationships?
~ Do you have old traumas and fears that are blocking you from living and loving fully?
If YES is your answer to one or more of these questions, then this program is designed specifically for you.
I can share with you from personal experience how this yoga intensive program came to be. Most of us circle around in Yoga communities where you can attend as many yoga-asana classes as time and your life allow, and attend endless workshops, yet somehow only scratch the surface of the transformational benefits of Yoga. Despite attending numerous Yoga Teacher Trainings, I still felt I was missing the big picture – I would come out of retreats, trainings, and workshops experiencing an elevated level of awareness, peace, and connection within myself – only to come tumbling down from my high horse minutes after entering back into my daily life! I needed something to help me integrate and stabilize the powerful teachings and experiences that were creating these dramatic and subtle shifts inside. Despite all the tools I had, it was only when I entered into this focused yoga-intensive approach that the wisdom I was accessing began to inform and permeate into my everyday life. I saw lasting changes in myself and in my relationships – in the moments where awareness was collapsing and threatening to propel me off into old reactionary patterns and behaviours – I was able to stop, listen, and access new responses to my environment during the critical moments when it was needed most. In my 13 years of Yoga study & practice, it is the very material I am sharing in this Yoga Intensive Program that has assisted the most in creating grounded, lasting change in myself and my relationship to the world around me.
HOW DOES THE YOGA INTENSIVE PROGRAM WORK?
The program is spliced into five 40-day segments with 3 days of rest in-between each:
Jan 1- Feb 9th EARTH ELEMENT
Feb 13th – Mar 23rd WATER ELEMENT
Mar 27th – May 5th AIR ELEMENT
May 9th – June 17th FIRE ELEMENT
June 21st -July 30th SPACE ELEMENT
At the beginning of each 40 day period, you will receive recorded guided audio meditations & yoga-asana sequence recommendations for working with and liberating each element within you. It is recommended to practice the guided meditation every day for the 40 days, or, for as many days as is accessible for you.
At your preferred convenience during each 40 day period, you will have two separate 1 hr Skype consultations with Amanda for personalized support in whatever capacity you and Amanda decide is most appropriate for you. This could be anything from understanding the theory of the practices, to unwinding and identifying particularly “sticky” or “tricky” emotional patterns that are dictating or replaying themselves in your life, to offering extra supportive practices that support the fundamental work you are doing during the sadhana.
Ongoing Weekly Email Support:
In addition to your private Skype consultations, Amanda will also be supporting you weekly via email (1 email per week, or, within reason as deemed necessary). This support can range anywhere from encouraging accountability and commitment to yourself, to answering your questions that arise within the practices, to integration and insight on how to apply what you are learning into your daily life, and, simply cheering you on!
Private Yoga Intensive Facebook Group:
Power in numbers. There is something immensely powerful about practicing in groups, or knowing that you are “in it together”. This private group gives you access to your fellow Yoga Intensive participants — to share your stories, experiences, revelations, insights, growth, and overall support for yourselves and one another! In Yoga, there is a sanskrit word for this. “Sangha” – translated directly as – the body of the teachings. It is with and through one another that the teachings stay alive and thrive!
7 Months of Life-Enhancing Yoga, Meditation & Self-Development Material:
All recordings and materials are yours to keep at the end of the 7 months – with the agreement that they are not to be shared with anyone outside of the program. You can return to the practices time and time again for the rest of your life! So essentially, a one-time investment gives you access to a lifetime of practices. I can share with you personally that I have returned to these 5 basic sadhanas again and again, and there is always more to learn, more to discover and uncover, more to grow, and more beauty, grace, and stillness to experience in myself. So I highly encourage you to go back and repeat the practices throughout your entire life!
- “Amanda is such a grounding, balanced, inspirational teacher. Patient and passionate, she embodies yoga and the “yoga bliss”. I really enjoyed the 5 elements Lectures which help tie the yoga practice to a way of life and a new self evaluation of inner disturbances and wisdom to self heal in a circle of supportive humans.”
- “Her teachings broadened my understanding of what yoga is. Her wisdom & knowledge is rare and unique for Western Canada – so refreshing and enlightening!”
- “Great cosmic connection as always. I always feel more divinely aligned with the energy Amanda presents and I can feed off of it in each session she offers. Always seeking more knowledge, I really appreciate Amanda’s dedication to her study, but also the way she shares and delivers her teachings with such beauty and grace. “

Why 40 Days?
Sadhana is a sanskrit word for daily spiritual practice. It is said that 40 is the traditional number of days needed for a sadhana to transform all layers of our being – from body to mind through to our entire consciousness. It is also said that it takes 40 days to fully form a new habit, and traditionally, each elemental sadhana is practiced for 40 days for a full transformation.

“All I would like to do is express my gratitude to whatever brought me to that first yoga class where you happened to be teaching. I’ve learned an incredible amount from you and I struggle for the words of gratitude…I know I don’t offer very much feedback verbally in our sessions but I hope somehow you know what your classes have meant to me…words don’t seem to do my sentiments justice, so I will just say thank you. Namaste.”Laura
