This training may be for you if….
You feel called to go deeper into the vitality and receptivity of your own body.
You are called to hold space for other women to become more connected to their bodies.
You crave work that fulfills and nourishes you…..
work that allows you to share from the essence of who you are.
When you sense into your heart, you feel a deep desire to offer your gifts in a way that brings more embodied joy, satisfaction, and connection to the world.
“On a daily basis, I am astounded by how nourished I am by my work.”
– Meghan Morris, founder of Amba Yoga
Amba Yoga was created specifically for women. Most yoga styles practiced today come from the male lineage of yoga. These practices were designed for the male body and system. In Amba Yoga, women learn how to become receptive and open to the life force energy within our bodies.
The Amba practice is based in the way nature moves. We use the five elements, cycles of the moon, and rhythms of nature as our internal compass, creating balance in movement and energy.
Amba Yoga guides you into your body’s knowing. Connecting to our pure joy of movement and to the truth that lives within our bodies is not specific to one system or culture. The language of the body is universal and timeless.
In the Amba Yoga training, you will learn how to sustain your energy and continually replenish your body with nourishing life energy. You’ll learn how to teach from your unique essence, bringing your natural enthusiasm and spirit through the structure of the Amba Yoga system.

Teacher Training Testimonials
“In this training, I’ve learned that if you’re not connecting to yourself, you’re not really connecting to anything.”
“Through deepening my practice in this training, I’m no longer worried about my future. I’m not concerned about the past. I’m just here.”
“I’ve become more aware of the abundance inside myself and in my life.”
“I feel so well equipped with tools I will now have for my whole life.”
“Amba Yoga teaches you how to let go of being small…how to take up space.”
After this training, I’ve become more conscious of the reality that I’m creating around myself. I’m opening more to the love and support that is already in my life. I noticed I have been creating a reality that’s harmful to me. I’m now going to go ahead and create a super epic reality! This community has helped me to catch the things that I miss.
–Ayla Joy Weber
“I realized how important it is for me to get into my body and release stagnant energy. Activating the energy in my body always makes me feel better, filled with energy, and more confident. Going back to accessing the primal energy is really important for us as women. In other areas of my health, I take care of my body through food and exercise, but I don’t do it for joy. I’m just doing it because I have to. This training, I learned that it’s really important to do the practice because I want to do it, not only physically but also to give myself love and support along the way.”
“I feel much more confident in my own unique practice, which doesn’t look or feel like anyone else’s. I’m feeling where my unique essence is helpful for the world. and when I’m helping myself and doing these practices, I’m helping everyone else in my life. Taking this time for me also spreads into the people around me, without any effort.”
“In my life, I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist. With the other yoga practices that focus on perfect alignment, it’s really stressful. Being a perfectionist is very stressful. What I love about this practice is that you can just let go into the flow. The embodied, organic, free flowing, feeling aspect of this practice is freeing me from judgement of right or wrong. Focusing on the flow of life energy and feeling is healing.”
“I’m learning to listen to my body on a deeper level. I can build energy from a more internal place.”
“I’m remembering to drop into my body and feel where it feels good to move. This practice can be applied to your real life on a day to day basis, remembering to breathe and feel in your body. I’ve learned to take the pressure off to have my yoga look a certain way, and to drop deeper into the feeling of it from the inside, to move at a pace that feels good to me.”
“I’m learning how to speak out, to connect to my power, and feel my strength. When I was little I used to be really confident, and I would tell everyone what I wanted. Somewhere along the way, I must have lost that. So I know I have it in me somewhere. Through this training, I’m reconnecting with my ability to express my truth and feel my core energy.”
