Amy Rees MacKay just loves practicing yoga with friends. Nearly 10 years ago, she found herself in a puddle of sweat on the floor of a Bikrams' yoga studio totally in love with the effects of the heat in the body. After practicing Bikrams in Vancouver and Hong Kong, Amy moved out east in 2008 and began spending her time at Moskha Yoga Halifax. Moskha Yoga encompassed everything that Amy loved about hot yoga and added a foundation of mindful compassionate action. Hot Yoga + activism = heaven. Amy has moonlighted as a high school drama teacher and a middle school English teacher, for which she earned a BEd and a BFA. However, these days Amy spends her days at home with her two kids, Hazel (3) and Henry (1). With a hot yoga studio in the basement of her very own home, Amy MacKay is living the dream.
