Namaste friends ♥
We all go through sticky things off of our mats and if we are new to the physical practice of yoga, we fail to comprehend what brought us into that space to begin with. I promise you, on the mat is where all the magic happens.
What I know is that, my personal battles off of my mat are what fuel my relationship and energy with my mat. I’ve been in a place where I’ve felt alone, stranded and like nothing will ever change. Sometimes we need a purpose and a reminder of our self-worth.
I’ll place my hands on my chest and remind myself that my heart beat is my purpose, and to lead everything I do on and off the mat with an open heart.
I am excited to be apart of this environment so others can remind themselves of their purpose. Each class we will match breath with creative movements while letting go of what no longer serve us. I enjoy keeping things light and fun so we can move and get out of our comfort zones and share some laughter.
*WE ALL HAVE PURPOSE*
Hey there! I’m Amanda Foran, the Owner/Operator and Head RMT here at Carp Massage Therapy and Yoga!
I’ve always had a passion for helping others and I get great joy in doing it for a living. There’s truly no better feeling than when a client tells me I’ve made a difference in their life!
In 2015, I opened Carp Massage Therapy because I had a vision to create more than just a Massage Therapy clinic, I truly wanted a facility where people could go to improve their overall wellness.
In 2018 the vision became reality and I’ve expanded to include even more massage therapy services and a yoga studio! I have also teamed up with some of the best local companies dedicated to improving people’s well-being to put on the greatest Wellness Workshops around!
My clients range anywhere from newborn babies, to 96 year-olds. Whether it is relaxation you're seeking, relief from chronic or acute pain, sports injuries, prenatal or even infant massage, we’ve got you covered!
Welcome to Carp Massage Therapy & Yoga!
I am many things: wife, mom, daughter, jewelry-maker, business owner and public servant.
I am also a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200) who has been practicing yoga for over ten years.
After falling out of poses because I was too busy making mental lists, I realized that to practice yoga requires stilling the mind and finding your breath. I fell in love with yoga at that moment and have never looked back.
I truly believe that self-care is imperative in combatting stress and improving resilience as we move through this busy life. Yoga and meditation have been my anchor through thick and thin and I feel honoured to help guide others in their practice.
Our new location is set on 2 beautiful acres in the Village of Carp.
In the backdrop is the picturesque KIN Vineyards. Yoga, massage & wine anyone!?
This charming, rustic wellness studio is home to 3 serene treatment rooms, and a full-size yoga studio.
We encourage our clients to stay, enjoy the scenery and really take a break while they are here!
