Leala1

Leala Enfield

Leala’s yoga journey began in 1992 in NYC. Her first yoga class sparked a sense that there was much more to life than what the world had presented to her. Within a year, she had moved to the remote side of Maui where she met David Williams and began a three month intensive study of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. She went on to develop an steady home practice. Living in community on Maui and traveling, she taught whoever wanted to learn, including the Secoya indigenous people in the Amazon tributaries of Ecuador.

During this time, Leala began practicing Vipassana meditation, attending numerous 10 day silent retreats. In 2000, Leala attended an Ashtanga Yoga teachers training course with renowned instructor David Swenson and in 2003 completed her 200 hour training through Trinity Yoga.

After moving to Alberta’s dry climate, intensive physical yoga practices began leaving her deeply fatigued. Leala began seeking a more holistic approach to yoga, one that would synergize her love of meditation, mindfulness, breath and embodied movement. She had a dream where she met and merged with an Indian sage who fused yoga and meditation into heart centered awakening. A few weeks later she met Yogi Vishvketu and began her journey into Akhanda® Yoga.

In 2006 Leala founded Prana Yoga Studio in Edmonton, Canada where she hosts workshops and trainings with Yogi Vishvketu every year. Leala is the Director of Training for the Akhanda Yoga Teacher Training program at Prana Yoga Studio. Along with owning a busy urban yoga studio, Leala has raised a family, guided international yoga retreats, and taught numerous YTT programs in both Canada and India. Leala’s passions include practicing yoga outdoors, hiking, swimming and quality time with her husband and their two vivacious daughters.

The benefits of yoga are precious and far-reaching. The invitation is to be profoundly open inside while holding vibrant presence for boundriless, limitless growth and evolution.

Soledad Agosto

Dancing and movement are a part of life on the island of Puerto Rico, where I grew up. As a child I knew the innocence of relaxed breathing. But I really discovered the power of breath when I was 19. After a yoga practice, during Savasana (corpse pose) as I was lying still on the floor, letting the gentle flow of the breath move my body, I felt the edges of my body open up and melt away. I realized my body started to open and surrender. My mind followed and I experienced  a new openness that set the pattern to further investigate the real meaning of what was happening.

Soon after that experience a series of painful events changed my life and my world as I had known it came to an end. I had a choice to open or close to the pain. Somewhere in my heart I chose to open.

I spend the next few years learning all I could about different types of yoga and massage. After finishing a BA in Anthropology I started a long trip to South America and was introduced to Vipassana Meditation. These silent 10 day meditation retreats were an amazing tool that showed me to be still, see and discover the world inside. In the years that followed I continued my studies in massage therapy, I study two years of Anatomy and Physiology in the Medical School of the University of Buenos Aires, I worked assisting classes in a renowned Massage Therapy School and had my private massage therapy practice in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

My first Yoga Teacher Training was in the Iyengar tradition, then I started teaching in 2007. I had the opportunity of attending the Yoga Teachers Training with the whole hearted Yogi Vishyketu in 2010 while I was pregnant with my first child. Being pregnant open up a whole new world and I became a passionate student of women, birth, female bodies, babies… Since then I’ve been learning and teaching yoga to pregnant women and moms and babies.

My husband and I own an alternative health clinic: Integrated Therapies (integratedtherapies.ca) We helped in the creation of two children: Orel and Pina.

Amanda Madhu Whiting

Amanda had been practicing yoga off and on since her early 20s, but after back surgery in 2009 restricted her range of motion, she found her way back to yoga full time. When she first started back, touching her toes seemed like an impossibility, but, like many discoveries through yoga, there is no such thing as an impossibility.

Yoga is a daily part of Amanda’s life both on and off the mat. Amanda has come to realize that the asana (postures) of the practice only skim the surface of what is available to be learned. Forever a student, Amanda has a thirst to continue learning and is on a lifelong learning journey that encompasses body, mind and soul. Her passions include mindfulness, loving kindness meditations, yin yoga and healing the physical body.

Amanda obtained her 200 hour training at Prana Yoga Studio under the delightful Yogi Vishvketu, and has certifications for both Prenatal (RPYT 85 hour) and Yin Yoga (115 hours). Amanda now has the pleasure of assisting the Prenatal Teacher Training through Om Mama Yoga. Teaching yoga has truly rejuvenated her and she loves being able to share all she has learned with the world.

Jennifer Janvier

Yoga is both the path and the tool to uncover space within the body and the mind. Within this space lives the truth. We are whole, unburdened, and blissful. My journey to yoga was sparked during my time as a birth doula. Witnessing and holding space for women as they gave birth in a powerful and connected way, ignited a curiosity in the connection between our physical body…

…the mind, and spirit. Deepening my understanding of the physical body I completed a massage therapy diploma in 2011. My passion for anatomy and functional movement began here. During the remedial exercise component of the program I was introduced to Akhanda yoga. Akhanda yoga opened up the world of pranayama, meditation, and mantra, along side the physical aspect of yoga.

This was the bridge between the physical body and the spirit that I was looking for.

I continued to deepen my practice and completed my 200hr yoga teacher training at Prana in 2017.

Always curious and wanting to dive in deeper, I’m currently working to complete my 300 hr teacher teacher training.

I look forward to sharing and continuing the journey to wholeness with you.
