Amy Coppens

Growing up in Edmonton, I have always been passionate about sports. As a young girl I was playing every sport I could get my hands on, at times shuttling from dance to football practice. As I got older I focused my energy and drive on soccer, playing at the elite club level, both premier and major league and on to the varsity level. Following university, living on the west coast in Victoria I developed a passion for running along the ocean which turned quickly into training and competing in half marathons and marathons. As I looked to push myself again I took on triathlon training 3 years ago. After completing 3 Half-Ironman’s I went on to accomplish my goal of completing Ironman Canada in 2013 in Whistler, BC. Currently I focus my training on triathlon training, while always looking... Read the profile >>

To me yoga is not something I do, it’s how I live; it’s not something I teach, but rather what I share. From my very first class in the fall of 2010, I knew there was something special about it; I often say, “It spoke to me like nothing before.” After a lifetime of competitive sports, hockey, track & field, mountain biking, rodeo, pounding heavy weights in the gym, and hard living including 16+ yrs. of football up to, and including, CFL training camps and practice rosters, injuries were taking a great toll on not only my physical body but mental state, as well with 3 major knee reconstructions, multiple concussions and spinal fusion; I had no idea what was to come once I started this amazing new journey of peace and softness. Like most athletes, my yoga practice... Read the profile >>

As a yoga teacher, I often tell my students that each class is different - will be a journey and you'll discover something new about yourself every time you come to the mat. Let go and see where your class will take you. When I attended my first yoga class in 2003, in the basement of our public library with my family by my side, there was no way I could fathom where my journey will be taking me. Exploring Ashtanga yoga, I enjoyed the physical aspect of the practice. While attending schooling for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in 2005, my sister suggested I try a Bikram Yoga class - let's just say it didn't really work out that well. I gave it some time, let go of that first class and tried again. As they say timing is everything and my second encounter was a far different... Read the profile >>

Moksha Yoga

I have traveled, met many amazing people, experienced fun adventures, and learned so much along the way. And through all this my passion for teaching yoga has blossomed and only gotten stronger. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to travel to India in 2010, for Moksha Yoga Training, and spend time with an incredible group of individuals where I got to be immersed in a magical culture, live yoga everyday, and encounter a journey of self-discovery. In 2012, I traveled to Sedona, Arizona to deepen my own practice and grow as a teacher under the guidance of Baron Baptiste. This Level 1 training was absolutely incredible and has changed my life! In 2013 I attended Level 2 in Tulum, Mexico and it rocked my world! I am beaming with excitement and cannot wait for my next... Read the profile >>
