Kate Seaman

Kate Seaman

Instructor - Studio Owner/Operator

Kate Seaman started practicing yoga at Acadia during her undergrad many years ago.

The flow through postures, connection to breath and quiet restoration of balance caught her attention and keep calling her back to her mat.

Yoga is not simply a workout, it is a wellness lifestyle that leads you to look for the good in all people and all things.

In May 2012, she graduated from the Sol Yoga 200 hour YTT program and continues to teach and practice. Any style that flows calls her name: vinyasa flow, prana flow, hatha, power flow, yin and even beginner classes. Her noontime offerings are vinyasa flow.

Practicing yoga and the art of ‘being kind to yourself’ can be a challenge. We strive to have perfect postures in yoga, perfect families and perfect careers. It is through being kind to yourself and finding time for yourself, that you lighten up, watch things evolve at their own speed, let go of being perfect and instead connect with every moment. Yoga helps you open yourself up to being your ‘best self’. This, in turn, helps you to be a benefit to others in this World.

Amanda Cox

Instructor - Studio Owner/Operator | Chair Yoga Certification; Pregnancy & Post-Partum Certification

Amanda’s first introduction to yoga was during her teens when she stumbled upon an illustrated book of yoga. Her passion was ignited and stays with her throughout her yoga journey today. Sometimes struggling to maintain balance in her life, yoga always reminds her that the answers can only be found within. She completed her 200hr certification at Sol Yoga Kentville in May 2012 and has been teaching weekly classes since June 2012. Recognizing that our society tends to feed an increasingly popular collective addiction to being busy, classes with Amanda reach out to anyone wishing to cultivate balance in their lives, both on and off the yoga mat. Teaching from an open heart, Amanda continues to learn & grow from her students as well as from the incredible community of instructors at Therapeutic Approach Yoga Studio Halifax where she completed her 500hr Advanced Level certification in July 2016.

Joy Waterbury

Joy Waterbury

Instructor - Chair Yoga Certification

Joy Waterbury describes her yoga practice as a meditation in motion. As a retirement gift to herself, she obtained her 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training through Sol Yoga in 2013. Joy then completed Chair Yoga Teacher Training with Julie Palmer.

The popular image of yoga may be that of a young person twisted physically up like a pretzel. But that need not be the only image. Those who are older can enjoy a lifelong yoga practice with ease and awareness, and Joy offers this opportunity.

Karen Roberts

Karen Roberts

Instructor

Karen‘s personal yoga journey began after taking her first (formal) class in 2002. She was however, introduced to yoga at a very early age by her mother who practiced regularly at home in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.
Having successfully completed the 230 hour YTT with Helen Wilson, thus began her teaching practice throughout the Annapolis Valley. Firmly rooted in the Anusara-inspired tradition with a strong emphasis on yoga therapeutics as taught to her by Anusara teachers Doug Keller and Desiree Rumbaugh, Karen blends Prana Flow Yoga as taught to her by Shiva Rea, in a light-hearted, spiritually centered class with an authentic inquiry into the nature of being that helps her students discover their full potential and keep their practice strong and vital at any age. She strives to maintain the highest integrity, compassion, and intention in each of her classes.

Tanya MacInnis

Tanya MacInnis

Instructor

15 years ago, Tanya took a body flow class and her interest in yoga was sparked. Having been an athlete all her life, Tanya sought strength through fitness. Weightlifting, boxing, basketball, and sprinting were a few of the ways she stayed active. It was when she turned to yoga for relaxation and muscle release that her connection with inner strength began to grow. More recently, as a runner and triathlete, yoga became the best way to help tired muscles recover from the wear and tear of training.

Yoga restores balance for the body and mind- releasing stress and compression, while bringing rejuvenation in with the breath. Tanya’s classes are designed to build strength and stamina with balance and peace. They are restorative and supportive for continued growth and progress on and off the mat.

Tanya completed her YTT 200 with Therapeutic Approach Yoga Studio in July 2016. Join her as she shares her passion for yoga with us!
