Her teacher, Yogrishi Vishvketu graced her with the name Madhu which means honey, nourishing and pure.

When Amanda first started yoga she was a 20-something year old looking for a way to relax. She did various types of yoga in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (ashtanga, kundalini, hatha), and determined that hatha yoga was the best fit for her at that time. She practiced yoga on and off through her pregnancies and after, and became serious again about yoga in 2012. Yoga has taught Amanda that through postures (asana), breath work (pranayama) and meditation, anxiety becomes more manageable, strength becomes apparent, and an overall sense of wellbeing is inevitable.

Amanda Madhu now facilitates trainings as well all of which can be found on the Trainings page.
