Amba Movement Teacher’s Training
No trainings currently scheduled. Check back for future dates.
The world is rapidly shifting, as women are stepping into our feminine power.
The time to harness that power is NOW.
In the Amba Movement Teacher’s Training, you’ll learn to embody your fullest potential, and help other women do the same.
More than any other practice, Amba has helped me to feel more alive and comfortable in my body. Amba helps me to feel and move my emotions so they don’t stay trapped inside of me. When I feel stuck and I practice Amba, the movement creates a space for fresh ideas and inspiration to flow through me.

Do you ever feel like. . .
You crave a deeper connection with your own body?
You desire to rekindle your true source of power within?
You want to feel less alone, isolated, and overwhelmed by life?
You wish to move away from criticizing and doubting yourself and into embodying your inner beauty, loving confidence, and soul power?
You’d like to help other women find this connection with themselves?
In the Amba Training, I learned that my body is waiting for me, all the time. Like the earth, she is there, steady and waiting for you to come back to her. Amba is coming back home to your body in a pure and genuine way in any moment you choose to put your presence there. And in there is joy and pure aliveness.

“When a woman’s heart, body, and higher self are one,
she becomes an unstoppable force of truth, vitality, and love.”
– Meghan Makena, founder of the Amba School of Embodiment
Hi there! I’m Meghan Makena, the founder of Amba. Growing up as a little girl, and into my teens and early twenties, I suffered form a deep disconnection with myself: I loathed my body, I knew I wasn’t fully IN my truth, and I was painfully out of touch with my feminine power.
For over a decade, I looked everywhere I could to find a solution to this deep, existential pain: I went to dozens of healers, tried therapy, traveled to India, did juice fasts, studied yoga with master teachers, and could not find a solution.
It wasn’t until I discovered the empowering embodiment practices that I now teach in Amba that I was able to feel whole within myself and at home in my body. Out of this personal healing journey, I discovered my calling to empower other women to heal themselves, and Amba was born.
Amba Movement was created from a vision of a world in which women are. . . .
Deeply nourished and fulfilled from the inside out
Living for internal satisfaction rather than performance
Devoted to living in alignment with their truth
In tune with their own bodies, and the rhythms of nature
Open in their hearts to feel the immense love of the Earth
Radiantly alive, empowered, confident, and whole
Never have I felt so supported & safe while being vulnerable. Meghan has guided me gently & firmly to go deeper, feel more & feel more empowered. My self confidence is growing, my teaching skills improving & feeling so much more at home in my body. I feel more nourished as my body aligns more with her true self & connecting to the earth. The group of women I continue to meet at Amba Training have been some of the most welcoming women & many truly have become friends. The Deep Nourishment Amba practice has been life changing & something I crave.
As a teacher and guide, I’ve learned to hold space for others while staying connected to myself.

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 movement look a certain way, and to drop deeper into the feeling of it from the inside, to move at a pace that feels deeply satisfying to me.
– Madeline P., 2017 TT Graduate

+ Amba Embodiment Circles It is highly recommended to begin Amba Circles before or during your training, to get the most out of the training. Amba Embodiment Circles is an add on program to the teacher training, and a pre (or post) requisite to be able to truly share the depth and authenticity of this practice from an embodied place within yourself. Amba Circles are an additional cost on top of training tuition, and many participants begin their Amba Circles journey before they begin the training, so that they have experience in the practice prior to learning to teach.
A note from Meghan Makena, the founder of Amba and the primary teacher of this training:
“Right now, women are being called to connect more deeply to our feminine power and wholeness.
I created the Amba School of Embodiment for women to have a safe, nurturing, and joyful space in which to unravel, open, strengthen, and remember the feeling of being whole, alive, and connected to the earth.
Amba is a space for you to come home to yourself through feeling and remembering that you are sacred, wild, and loved.”

This Teacher’s Training was as enriching an endeavor as I have yet to come across.
The training took me to a whole new level of relationship with my body. I grew to be able to “hear” what it had to say to me, honor that, and incorporate it into my consciousness and heart.
The training was intellectually stimulating, physically enjoyable and rewarding, but the most surprising treat was the relationships that grew out of the time we spent training together.
I am so much more comfortable in my skin, able to really tap into my earth body and hear her, and I am grateful to Meghan for her constant enthusiasm during the training.
It was a life enhancing experience that I am happy to carry with me now and into my forever.
