What it is:
Each semester of Amba Embodiment Circles is a journey for women who want to feel more alive, deeply nourished, and are looking to go deeper with your embodiment practice. Learn how to bridge the presence, joy, deliciousness, and love you experience in your practice with your whole life – bringing that connection into your relationships, your work, your day-to-day tasks. The same group of women meets together for a mini retreat twice a month, for several months. In each circle, there is time for sharing and discussion of the circle topic, as well as guided Amba Movement practice (fluid movement, feminine yoga, dance, breath work, sound, partner exercises, and deep nourishment earth meditation). Rather than drop in classes, a semester of Amba Embodiment Circles is a journey that takes women deeper each time. Each session builds on the previous one.
Who it’s for:
Amba Embodiment Circles are for women who want to go deeper and access the full range of embodiment through deepening your connection to your body, heart, and essence. In Amba, you’re guided to explore and embody all 3 aspects of the feminine: sacred feminine (your essence), wild feminine (your body) and loved feminine (your receptive heart). The Amba Circles are for women who are ready to develop more consistency or richness in their practice and are seeking to weave the depth of connection found in these circles through their whole lives. This is a program for women of all ages who crave the community of authentic, supportive movement practice.
What it’s about:
AThe steadiness of regular practice is key to learning how to live in the consistency of nature’s rhythms, and allows you to go deeper over time. We are constantly jumping out of ourselves in our modern culture – jumping in and out of relationships, practices – and because of this, we can miss out on the richness and depth that we can get from going deeper into ourselves. In Amba Embodiment Circles, you’re guided to go deeper into the universe of your body, and to keep finding deeper gems within you. This process is like nature: It takes time.
This year in the Amba Circles has been hugely transformative for me. I feel more connected with myself, more in alignment with myself. I had set out intentions for myself and I realized I actually have reached them. The tools that Meghan has given me has allowed me to reach those goals. And hearing the shares of all of the women in this group what they are going through and how things are affecting them is just so powerful. I can’t wait for these classes each week. I have this thirst for this practice, I can’t get enough! it just makes me feel so good inside.

What do you do in an Amba Embodiment Circle?
Embodiment Circles begin with an opening practice that usually includes breathing, meditation, and body awakening. You’re then guided through an movement journey. Each circle will be custom crafted based on the women in the circle, the phases of the moon, and the seasons. Every circle ends with quiet time for writing or meditation, and a sharing circle at the end.

When I first learned about Amba I was experiencing a complete disconnection from my body. I tried different kinds of yoga and it wasn’t doing it for me. Amba made me feel like there was hope. I didn’t realize how much lack of connection I had, until now. In my relationships, I’m much calmer and much more open to connection with others. I didn’t realize that my lack of connection to my self was also translating to a lack of connection with other people. I’ve also found I’m more sensuous. Overall, it’s increased my vibrancy, enthusiasm, and energy.

Amba helps me to align my body, mind, and spirit so that I can be present in my heart, and more accurately express it to the world. When I’m able to do that I’m able to more fully live my purpose. Being able to move and flow with my body brings me an amazing joy that I have been longing to share with the world. Since doing Amba Embodiment Circles, I feel more at peace, alive, and I have an amazing love for myself that I did not know was possible before.
