Amy Thiessen

Each voice carries a unique gifta resonance which we offer through word, expression, and communication. With over 17 years of experience as a musician, yoga teacher, coach and facilitator Amy Thiessen uses a holistic approach to awaken voice and communication through the integration of somatic awareness, discernment, devotion, and vocal techniques.

Amy’s work/performances have been featured in print (Gaia, Globe & Mail) radio (CBC, CKUA), television (Travel Alberta, Stampede Sessions, Born to Explore, Epic Rides) as well as global and local conferences (Embodied Yoga Summit, Mind-Body Therapy Summit, Ted X), international festivals (Wanderlust, Bali Spirit fest) and alongside international facilitators Megan Currie and Janet Stone.
