Amber was first introduced to the physical practice of yoga when taking belly dance classes nearly 5 years ago. She quickly found that she wished the yoga portion of the class was more than just a warm up and cool down and decided it was time to explore yoga on its own.
After exploring several local studios, Amber found a home at Yoga Shakti. Under the guidance of the experienced teachers at Yoga Shakti, she developed a consistent asana practice.
Excited with the changes she was seeing in her body and eager to learn more about the ancient practice of Yoga, Amber enrolled in Yoga Shakti’s 200 hour Teacher Training program and graduated in 2018. Though she initially sought out Teacher Training to deepen her own practice, she discovered a true love of teaching through the course of the training and followed it up by completing the Mentorship program with Andrea Rasla. In her teaching she hopes to create a space for students to turn inwards, strengthen their bodies, and become more in-tune with themselves in a way that translates off the mat.
Amber loves to teach Level 1 classes and hopes to build a foundation for her students to continue deepening their practices for years to come. An avid traveller with a background in anthropology, you’ll likely find Amber exploring new places and cultures when not on the mat.
