Workshops: Yogic and Therapeutic
Humans are made for connection.
We learn best in the community of others.
Amber's Workshop Appoach:
Amber aims to cultivate a satsang, or spiritual community, in her workshops. Where boundaries soften in our selves and with each other. Amber does this by being real, vulnerable and egalitarian in her approach. She is learning in the workshop with you all and encourages questions and discussions. Emotional expression, as well as sharing life challenges are all welcomed! The aim is to leave with more knowledge on the particular topic, with greater self-awareness, and inspiration to take into your life.
Ayurveda, Dosha Test
An introduction to the sister science of Yoga, called Ayurveda. It is an ancient Indian medicinal practice that is known to be the "science of life."

This workshop is done in community and is either a good ice breaker to unite a group, or for getting a group closer.
Participants will learn about how the word yoga, means connection, and the profound importance of connection. This includes with the self, the Divine intelligence (or its many names), and the connection we have with each other.
The workshop consists of doing a series of asanas in the unifying energy of a circle. Participants will engage in human touch and often use their neighbors for balance and support to effectively hold the asanas.
Conducted only in person.

Healing Limiting Core Beliefs
Amber has devised a process to quickly and easily identify the three main limiting core beliefs that nearly all humas suffer for.
In this workshop participants will learn:
• Core beliefs live as the root of many addictive, impulsive, disengaging, self sabotaging and unserving behaviors
• How to trace back our behaviors to our thoughts, feelings, core belief(s) and nurture that early wound
• How to weave this awareness and healing process into our daily lives
• To become more empowered
• How to create and use loving affirmations
• How to become our own best friend and main provider of love
Loving Soft & Hard
Do you struggle with setting boundaries with those you love?
Is one of your loved one suffering from an addiction?
Do you feel responsible for your loved one's feelings?
Do you end up sacrificing yourself too much, to help others?
Do you suffer in silence?
Are you feeling a lack of support?
If you are experiencing any of these things, you could be what we call in psychology, experiencing codependency.
