Our Team

Laura Kieley
Founder, Teacher, Student

Laura is fuelled by movement and mindfulness. The connection of body and mind, actions and reactions and the exploration into autonomous living is what influences Laura’s teachings, way of life and her commitment to the continued service of others.

Through Laura’s studies in yoga, business, psychology and living mindfully, the lessons learned have become a daily practice of living well and thriving.  Her dedication to living well is reflected in her daily choices and activities which influence her teachings. 

Laura found her passion for practicing yoga over 15 years ago which evolved to teaching over 11 years ago. After completing many yoga teacher trainings, in 2019 Laura founded The Practice, co-founded and co-owned by Amy Tattrie. The pair are passionate about creating a community where people move physically, energetically and mindfully. It's in this space where we explore our relationship to self, through movement and stillness. 

The evolution of Laura’s practice is what lends awareness to her everyday life. Spending time in nature, nose deep in a book, dancing with excitement, the enjoyment of good coffee, wine and company is where Laura finds pursuit in thriving and living every experience as wholly as she can.


Laura continues her journey of living mindfully and seeks every opportunity to continue this path. Her greatest passion is her community, family and being a support to others. Laura is so elated to have created and co-facilitated the recent addition of The Mentorship Program at The Practice. Laura also is co-creator and co-facilitator of Movement Teacher Training through The Practice.

Amy Tattrie
Founder, Teacher, Student

My favorite thing in the world is witnessing people reconnecting with themselves. Discovering what it really means to be in their bodies. How does it feel to be present with yourself, even in chaos; in movement and stillness? My mission is helping people discover their own power. Through movement and mindfulness, we can reconnect to our own personal brand of magic.

I discovered yoga at a time when I really needed it, and it took me on a journey that I never in my wildest dreams seen coming. Seven years later, I became a yoga instructor. 2 years later, here we are, still dreaming.

Facts: I love animals, walking barefoot, moving my body, and being outside. I run on coffee, chocolate and plants.

I teach The Practice, The Flow, The Restore, The Release & The Presence.

Teacher, Student

When I first came to the mat, it was a way to soften the tension generated from sport. Over the last nine years, my practice has steadily evolved and grown deeper, becoming as much of a workout for my mind as my body. My time spent on the mat now is where I practice trusting myself, exploring, and playing. It is my refuge and my anchor. As a Yoga Alliance certified 200 Hour vinyasa yoga teacher, I have learned from teachers in London, England, and Halifax, Nova Scotia. I can’t wait to share this practice with others.
