Integrative Kundalini Yoga

This holistic class integrates pranayama, meditation, toning and mantra practice, asana (postures), functional stretching, and  deep relaxation.  Each class has a particular focus to support you to feel the best you can in body, mind and spirit.  Rooted in a Kundalini foundation, this class integrates various other practices and lots of space to explore the movements to help to support you in evolving your own yoga.

This is a learning based practice, where we explore different body systems, and different yogic teachings.  This class also intends to offer you space and flexibility to explore your own unique guidance and needs, in a safe practice with support every step of the way .

This class is offered Saturday mornings online through the zoom platform, from 9:00 – 10:15 am.  Recordings of these classes are also available.  In addition, Amber offers this in one – on – one private, or small group sessions (either online or in person).  She loves working with you to create a practice that meets you where you are.

Mindful Movement, Meditation and Relaxation

A mindfulness learning – based practice of breathwork, gentle yoga, movement, and meditation.  We start each class connecting with our breath and setting intentions to serve as an anchor for each session.  You will be guided through some very gentle postures and somatic based movement reconnecting you with your body and encouraging easeful movement.  This is a learning-based practice which intends to help you to foster a deeper understanding of what your unique body needs through alignment based practices.

The meditation portion of our class will be a seated guided practice drawing on  various mindfulness based techniques to bring you deeper into the calm oasis that lives inside of you – it is there, it just gets hidden sometimes.

We begin to understand the patterns of our mind through practice, and invite a less reactive way of being in the world.  Our practice ends with an extended  relaxation to help you integrate the session and deepen your relaxation.

This class is offered online live through the  zoom platform, Tuesdays from 2:00 – 3:00 pm, as well recordings of the classes are available.  Amber also offers this practice one – on – one (in person or through zoom), to support your unique needs.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is a nurturing yoga practice for times of overwhelm or when we just need to reset.

It helps us to restore equilibrium, as we center back into our breath and body – aligning the physical and mental aspects of who we are.

The practice is about returning to your true nature, that place of infinite calm that lies deep within each of us – complete ease – where we can truly let go and heal. With each posture we drop deeper and deeper into that reservoir of calm available within each of us.

Restorative yoga is a passive, gentle style of yoga using props to support the body for longer holds. We start with some gentle movement and stretching and then progress into the supported restorative postures.

The class is a gentle style of yoga using props to support the body for longer holds, and is often accompanied by a foot massage (only offered with permission), or gentle holds to help deepen your relaxation experience.  Amber also offers personal one – on – one sessions where she integrates restorative yoga with massage, based on your unique wellness needs.

Yin Yoga And Qi Gong

 This class combines Qi Gong, Yin Yoga and energy medicine; helping you to feel balanced, nourished and vibrant.   

 Qi Gong practice combines gentle movements, meditation, and breath practice.   Yin Yoga is also a gentle practice of longer held seated or lying down yoga postures stretching the fascia, which is the connective tissue that unifies the entire body.   All of these self care practices merged together encourage the harmonious flow of energy throughout the body, supporting all of our body systems. This gentle way practice also supports the flow of Chi through our meridian channels.  

This class is for all levels because we work gently, at your level and encourage your life energy to flow. 

Karma Classes

We hold special monthly classes where all proceeds are donated to a chosen charity or local families in need of extra support. The suggested amount is $10, but no donation is too small. Check our blog for upcoming karma yoga dates.

Amber also offers one – on – one sessions combining massage, meditatation and yoga – based on your needs.  More details to come.
