Have you always wanted to try yoga? Are you a regular yoga student who would love to introduce your friends or family members to yoga? Have you practiced yoga in the past but are now feeling out of practice?
This series is for you.
Yoga: The Basics is a 4 session series designed for people who have never practiced yoga, returning students who would like to ease back into a regular yoga practice after a hiatus, as well as regular students who would like to improve their knowledge and offer moral support to friends and family members
This series consists of 4 classes which will introduce the practice of yoga poses as well as modifications, breathing, and the basics of yoga as a healing art form. Sessions on Saturday, January 6 & 20 will allow for discussion of integral anatomy and alignment and opportunities to ask questions. Sessions on Wednesday evening January 10 & 17 will build upon the format of SoulSlow and SoulZen, respectively, so that upon the completion of the series, you will feel confident entering our various mixed level classes.

Over a decade ago, a psychiatrist recommended Amber try yoga to alleviate anxiety. At that time, she buffered herself with Xanax and numbness just to get out of bed in the morning. Yoga has been one tool among many which has breathed her back to life and helped her heal everything from back pain to a broken heart, divorce to depression, anorexia to alcoholism, and other ailments in between. She revels at every opportunity to share with others the same practice that continues to heal her. A trained counselor and former public school school teacher, she tailors her classes to meet the unique needs of students on the mat before her. It's not uncommon for her to teach a handstand tutorial in one private session and chair yoga in the next. She specializes in teaching yoga to people with limited mobility, injuries, and those who’ve experienced trauma. Seasoned with poignant anecdotes and childlike laughter, her classes blend methodical sequencing with spiritual nuggets that everybody can digest. When you roll up your mat following her class, you feel both empowered with strength and inspired with humility.
She believes we’ve each been given a spark of the same phenomenon that causes our hair to grow and our hearts to beat; yoga teaches us to live from that sacred space. To learn more about Amber, find her at ambershumake.com or Connect with her on Instagram ( @ambershumake ).
