My road to becoming a yoga instructor began soon after college when I experimented with many different types of fitness––simply trying to find the active lifestyle that felt authentic to me.
I attended my first hot yoga class in an attempt to up the ante on my fitness routine. But fitness was only a small part of what I gained from the practice. It was the healing, nurturing aspects that kept me coming back.
After a childhood bicycle accident, I struggled with migraines and frequent neck pain. Through regular practice, yoga has helped reduce the frequency of my migraines and relieved my neck pain significantly.
Feeling compelled to spread this health and wellness to others, I left the corporate world to attend teacher training.
I am a certified RYT-200 yoga instructor, and am eager for you to come vinyasa, sweat, and share your story with me.
Amber teaches Power, Yin and Stand Up Paddle Yoga and is our resident Acupuncturist. She is also on the editorial staff at DoYouYoga.com as a writer. Amber was named 2015 and 2016 Glide SUP Yoga Ambassador and 2016 Mind Body Brand Ambassador.
Amber's nature inspired Vinyasa style Power yoga classes are built for all levels, and will challenge your body, and your mind. She uses her vast knowledge of anatomy to accentuate particular fitness aspects, and pairs fast, strengthening Power yoga with slow, deep, mindful "Yin" yoga aspects. Each month introduces a new intention based around traditional yoga philosophies, and each week the flow changes slightly to center around a related peak pose, or flow.
Having found yoga via a need for personal stress relief and a love of movement, Amber began practicing in 2005 in our Bikram room. Her practice became more dedicated in 2011 when she fell in love with Power yoga. A solar powered lover of the outdoors, Amber started teaching here in 2013 after hiking (and yoga-ing) through the Costa Rican Rainforests. Also the owner of a local acupuncture clinic, she treats orthopedic injuries and women’s health using yoga as movement therapy to compliment to her clients recovery and continued wellness.
With an emphasis in each class on helping you find YOUR pose in each shape, as pertaining to your body and mind, Amber works towards helping everyone find more clear seeing- calm abiding moments.
”Amber leads a challenging flow with lot's of balancing, binding, inverting and strengthening. Her class is great for all levels. She inspires you to try new postures and deepens your body mind awareness. Be prepared to see physical, and emotional changes quickly!" -Nicole
