Body Positive Yoga Workshops

Loved the class

“Loved the class and the way Amber taught it. Explaining poses, demonstrating poses and allowing us to experience the variations in our own bodies. The education on language was so helpful and enlightening. I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in broadening their class to include more yogis.”
