Amy Hoare Nassar
Amy is a somatic trauma recovery specialist, trained in the modalities of Trauma Centre Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) and Somatic Experiencing (SE). With a deep commitment to equity and belonging within the healing journey, they offer one on one or group sessions. These modalities offer a trauma-sensitive approach , empowering individuals to reclaim agency within a safe relationship. Through deep listening and attunement, Amy emphasizes choice-making, present-moment awareness, and taking informed, effective action.
Identifying as queer and gender-fluid, Amy uses she/they pronouns. As a white second-generation Canadian born to Irish immigrants, she maintains a strong connection to her Irish heritage while being aware of her white settler identity within Canada. This understanding drives her ongoing exploration of its implications and her commitment to fostering inclusive and decolonized spaces. Amy lives and works in Toronto (also known as Tkaronto)—a land graced by the history and presence of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee. In her work and life, she prioritizes honoring, learning from, and collaborating with the Indigenous communities that are the traditional stewards of this territory.
