Meet the Harmony Team
OWNER & YOGA TEACHER
Amanda Rico is the owner of Harmony Yoga Haliburton.
She is a 550hr registered yoga teacher with the Canadian Yoga Alliance and a Yoga Medicine® Teacher. She is currently working toward her 500hr certification with Yoga Medicine®. She has completed trainings and certifications in Vinyasa, Hatha, Power Yoga, Restorative, Yin, and Ayurveda. Her clear and direct teaching style combines an understanding of alignment and anatomy to create an atmosphere where challenging movement, awareness, and breath merge to create a balance between effort and ease. Amanda is an Ashtanga yoga practitioner and brings her dedication and devotion to the practice into all her teachings. She practices and teaches from Ayurvedic principles, keeping in tune with the rhythm of the seasons to offer balance to the mind, body, and spirit. She was brought to yoga by her mother who has been a life long practitioner.
Born and raised in the County, Amanda is a happy and active member of the community. A natural born leader, she went to university for teaching! Her exposure to travel as an exchange student paired nicely with her new degrees, and she spent years traveling and teaching in Australia after graduating. Amanda stepped into her first yoga studio during her first year of university, but it was her time in Australia that her practice became more serious. Her practice ebbed and flowed (no pun intended!) with her lifestyle and movements around the world. She took a 200hr YTT in Costa Rica with the Marianne Wells Yoga School in 2017. This journey, the practice of yoga, and the yogic way of thinking has changed Amanda in ways she cannot describe. The training was initially for personal growth, but Amanda has since found a love for sharing her passion for life and yoga while in the studio. Amanda is certified with her Reiki Level 1 & 2. She also really loves the moon!
