Creating safer, braver spaces for people to explore embodiment, growth and transformation.
With her passion for sparking freedom in people, Amanda founded SomaPsych in order to share the knowledge and skills she has acquired from years of study and teaching in the mental health and yoga space. Amanda and the incredible facilitators that work with SomaPsych have come together to cocreate online and in person teaching portals, programmes and events, out of their shared passion for sparking freedom in every single person they come into contact with.
SomaPsych brings together science and facts with the power of the subtle energies and internal knowing that we can't quite explain but innately know play a key role in navigating this life. It's a place for you to learn tools and techniques to make attainable and sustainable changes in your daily life, rewiring old patterns, and beliefs for a more authentic and powerful you.
SomaPsych focuses on integrated wellbeing that supports body, mind and everything in between. By implementing a trauma-informed approach in all that we do, we hold and encourage braver spaces that facilitate curiosity, growth, and transformation for all. We believe in walking alongside people while holding hope as a possibility every step of the way. We offer tools, techniques, and insights for restoration and balance, individual care and exploration, as well as promoting social and systemic change so the collective can evolve and thrive. Just as soma and psyche is the intersection of body, mind, and spirit, SomaPsych is the intersection of the individual and the collective.

Born and raised in Canada, Amanda’s interest in Mental Health started while studying at college where she was able to open a mental health student support centre on campus. As Amanda’s curiosity for mental health developed, so did her interest in the practice and theory behind yoga. You could say this changed Amanda’s life, as it allowed her the space, tools, and knowledge to develop a new relationship with herself.
‘What else is out there? What don’t I know about? What else can I dive into?’
As a multipassionate and forever-curious individual, Amanda started to bring together all the tools that resonated deeply with her and allowed her to transform. As she combined these tools and teachings, she was able to create a new life for herself.
With Amanda’s years of experience in Business, Holistic Nutrition, Yoga, Mindfulness, & Neuroscience, she is able to combine her expertise and passion to facilitate an empowering space for personal transformation.
Amanda has run many workshops and trainings in the traditional and alternative healing spaces over the years combining her knowledge for business, holistic nutrition, yoga and more!

Stories from our Community
The structure of the course is very well organized, makes sense and flows perfectly. The Mindfulness section, neuroplasticity and the trauma-sensitive parts were eye-opening and enlightening.
LOVED how Amanda described and conveyed the message/points. She articulates it well, makes sense, enjoyable and easily accessible to anyone.
I loved absolutely everything but mostly the journey from the self, through the self, to the self. You have changed my life in 10 days. I am so excited to go out into the big wide world.

I'm a range of emotions today, raw, vulnerable, infinite, expanded, observant, introspective. My friend, my teacher Amanda, thank you for being a guiding light along the path of life. Words simply don't express my full gratitude for this experience with you, and, the beautiful souls who shared the space of being 'truly' present.... so much love, so much to give, so much to continue to learn. Each day has been a step closer along the path in the journey toward home.
Talk about an integrative practice, When her intuition isn't guiding her to tell you exactly what you NEED to hear, her brain is sharing with you how to balance your body through nutrition and neuroscience as well as body work. Amanda's Session are always so helpful and just what I've been searching for.

I love the authenticity of every teaching offered throughout this training. Amanda is a honey pot of knowledge and offers her experience in such a beautiful, empowering way.
It's hard to put on finger one what I loved most about this training but one thing that will stay with me throughout my journey is the empowerment, sense of ownership and knowledge of self that Amanda embodies and encourages for her students. This will be a message I carry through my teaching and life.
