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, Insight 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.

Since then, her devotion to the practice has been unwavering, and her joy when sharing these tools, magnetic.
