Amber Young, E-RYT 500
Amber was drawn to yoga to relieve her body from the daily aches and pains caused by sports injuries in her early 20's. "It has been key to keep my body and mind in a place of comfort and contentment."
Amber's first yoga teacher was her mother, Mercy Ananda, a long time yogini and kirtan musician and part of the Yandara faculty. Amber describes her mother as "one of the most inspiring women she has ever known."
For Amber, yoga is a way of life rather than a practice. As well as being a devoted yogini on all levels, Amber is an inspired surfer. She has learned to surf the waves of the ocean as well as the waves of life as yoga teacher, a householder, and a loving mother to her daughter Coral.
Forever in love with the flow of the ocean, Amber teaches and practices a fluid Vinyasa style, her students describe her classes as fun and dynamic with a strong emphasis on arriving in the present moment.
Since completing her first 200-hour training in 2008, Amber has had the priveledge to learn from and teach with all the amazing instructors at the Yandara yoga Institute. Amber has also received her 500 hour certification as well as a certification in Prenatal Yoga.
"If someone asked me to describe myself in three words i would say strong, silly and kind. To me, Yoga is freedom."
