CHARLOTTE, NC

For Students: Body Positive Yoga Workshop

Have you ever been frustrated in a yoga class – not because you couldn’t do the poses, but because you felt squished or balled up, instead of spacious and open? You probably just need a few simple tricks to make the poses work for your body!

This workshop is designed especially for bigger-bodied yogis who want to be empowered to step into any class with confidence, knowing they have the tools to make yoga work for their unique body type.

In this workshop, we’ll explore things like: How to keep your chest out of your face, twisting and folding when you have a belly, and other “sticky spots” like sun salutations and inversions. We’ll help each other find safe alignment and freedom in poses, learn to modify yoga to fit our bodies, and have some laughs along the way.


For Teachers: Body Positive Yoga Workshop

Learn how to craft and language a yoga class that is truly welcoming for students of all shapes and sizes. This yoga teachers’ workshop will include both practical asana instruction and discussion. We’ll debunk stereotypes and discuss how to create an environment of safety, agency, and consent. We’ll also explore common challenges faced by larger-bodied students. We’ll practice asana modifications and ways to use yoga props to help your students get the most out of your class.

Amber will speak from her experience as both a larger-bodied yoga student and teacher, and together we’ll build a toolbox to make your classes more welcoming and inclusive. Bring any and all questions that you might hesitate to ask your students about how to make the practice work for them – we’ll troubleshoot them together in this body-positive yoga lab setting.

MADISON, WI

Radical Self-Acceptance Workshop & Yoga Class

Join me for a 1-hour accessible yoga class followed by a 90-minute discussion on Radical Self-Acceptance.

With thousands of images of “perfection” shot at us every day, it can be easy to compare ourselves with others and internalize the constant judgment and scrutiny of our bodies. Even during our yoga practice, it’s often easy to compare ourselves to the “ideal” body or look. Whether you’re at home, at the gym, at the yoga studio, or just moving around in the world, feeling self-conscious or even hateful toward your (normal! human! imperfect!) body is sometimes unavoidable. Drawing on mind-body, self-awareness, and practical self-care techniques, we’ll discover ways to boost confidence, get in touch with our inner badass, and foster a healthy self image. Please bring a pen and something to write on.

Class only: $20, Discussion only: $10, Attend both: $25
