Amica's first taste of yoga came when, as a child, she accompanied her mom to yoga classes, where she developing a taste for movement, relaxation and focused practice. Amica studied dance--both contemporary and creative movement--for over 12 years and moved to Toronto in 2003 to purse a professional career in the arts.
It was her passion for movement that led her to begin practicing yoga in her late teens, initially as a means of complementing her dance training. These classes deeply affected her, and soon she sought out different styles of practice and various teachers in the city before discovering Ashtanga yoga and The Downward Dog Yoga Centre, where she felt a true connection. The practice intrigued her and she felt compelled to direct energy to its study.
Amica completed her teacher training at Downward Dog in 2006, marking the beginning of a devoted and loving commitment to explore, teach and continually rediscover its many benefits. On her journey, she feels blessed to have had the strength and support of the practice to carry her forward in its truly magical way. Amica continues to learn and build her practice with the help of her teachers Ron Reid, Diane Bruni, Delia Triolo, Marla Joy, and David Gellineau.
