Background

Amber is a certified yoga and meditation teacher based in New York City. Her passion and curiosity around these practices has led to more than 15 years of experience in the world of wellness. She has trained in Mindful Awareness, Buddhist and Vedic meditation, Vinyasa and Iyengar Yoga, Physiyoga, as well as Aromatherapy.

Growing up in southern California as a dancer, volleyball player, and snowboarder, Amber first sought out yoga as a way to complement her athletic pursuits. It quickly became clear, however, that the benefits of yoga went far beyond physical exercise. It required a certain kind of focus and attention that left her with a quiet mind and a deep sense of peace. Eager to understand the inner workings of the practice, she jumped at the chance to study with the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA, earning a B.A. in Sociology with Honors from the school. Since then, her devotion to the practice has been unwavering, and her joy when sharing these tools magnetic.

Teaching Philosophy

I teach yoga and meditation simply because it has brought an immense amount of joy, equanimity, and compassion into my life. Because I have been lucky enough to study with deeply knowledgeable and authentic teachers, I feel called and honored to share these invaluable lessons that help guide us all back home.
