About The Teacher

Amelia's journey as a teacher started 12 years ago, having been trained in Pilates, Fitness and Personal Training. She worked with a diverse range of people and communities. At that point she realized how much she loved to help people have a better, active life and decided to study a degree in Exercise and Sport Sciences, in Spain.

In 2013 she completed her 500 hrs YTTC at Kranti Yoga, Goa, India. Initially, it was to complement her field of work and studies. However, during her training she developed a completely different point of view about the concept of health.  She realised that health is not just about the physical body but the mind and soul also. Through Yoga, Amelia found balance in her life.  She started to incorporate aspects of yoga philosophy not only on the mat but also in her everyday life. 

After Amelia's initial extended, in depth studies of yoga in India, she returned home and realised how much she missed The Yoga Village. She returned to assist on the YTTCs in order to develop herself as a Yoga Teacher.  Passionate about anatomy, she was quickly able to apply her knowledge in the Ashtanga Yoga practice, helping students on a daily basis to overcome the many obstacles faced physically.  

As a teacher, Amelia is unwaveringly attentive and possesses the rare gift of making learning fun and enjoyable. Ask her any question about functional anatomy and her creative response will provide you with the most accessible answer. Amelia is sure that her purpose in life is to help and inspire other people to believe in themselves and challenge their existence.
