I grew up sampling many forms of physical arts - from equestrian riding to gymnastics to dance to Judo to Qi Gong, to name a few. I have a very wide interest in fitness disciplines, but was finally introduced to yoga by accident while at drama college in Dublin, Ireland. Doing surya namaskars everyday before shiatsu class, somatics during voice class. I started practicing consistently in 2000, obtained my yoga certification January 2008 and have been teaching since 2008. I tap into my past training in the various physical disciplines to infuse creativity and an additional awareness that practicing yoga is not separate from dance, scuba diving, horse riding, etc. Each pose has a value to be acknowledged and each sequence a beauty to be felt, that acknowledgement and beauty transcends into one's being to recognize that yoga is not something separate from oneself.

"I experienced Amber as a teacher for one week in Mexico by the sea. Although I have practiced yoga in a variety of traditions for over 30 years, I found my one hour practice every day for one week with Amber to be refreshing and exhilarating! Amber has a peaceful presence about her that conveys the yogic philosophies to the beginner as well as those who have been working on it for a few years. She's warm, friendly, lively, and yet meditative. We had an added connection by being from the same area in Minnesota. This formed into a friendship. I can see from Ambers work that she is a universal woman who has exposed herself to many of the experiences life has to offer. She has both an introspection about herself as well as a knowledge of how to bring her wisdom and teachings to others. Amber is a born teacher, and the universe is blessed to be receiving all she has to offer."

"I met Amber at the beach in Cabo, Mexico. She taught yoga at 7am on the beach everyday. I was interested in learning as I'd heard it would be very helpful for my physical needs. (several surgeries, knees and back). Amber is so into helping others that she gave me time for private lessons on days she was not on the clock at the hotel where she taught. We would spend an hour together so she could show me how it's done. Not only did she do that but she wrote out sheets of instructions for me to follow once I got back to the states. She is exceptionally knowledgeable in all of the technics of yoga and I wish she lived near me so I could continue lessons with her."
