Welcome to Amba Yoga

 

WHAT IF . . .

our bodies are not just a practical means to get it from here to there?

WHAT IF . . .

our bodies are not something we need to transcend in order to awaken?

WHAT IF . . .

as we really got to know our bodies, and travelled into the center of every cell, we would find the brightest light in the entire universe, and the most real love that exists?

When you get deeply in touch with your body, you simply feel more IN yourself.

The Amba Yoga practice is not about looking a certain way, or fitting into a pose that doesn’t feel right. It’s about sinking into the feeling of aliveness in your body, and letting your presence and breath infuse into your tissues so deeply that your body moves from her innate desire toopen….like a flower blooming.

Amba Yoga is for you if you are:

Looking to develop a loving relationship with your body
Craving nourishment and radiant aliveness
Wanting to feel more alive, confident, and relaxed
Desiring a deep connection with life, the earth, and nature through your body and breath
Sensing a call to awaken the sacred feminine energy that lives within you
Seeking to unwind stress and tension to feel lighter
Ready to feel more freedom, vital energy, and enjoyment from your yoga or movement practice.

What to expect at a class:

Luscious, fluid movement
Nourishing yoga postures and breath work
Whole body and core strengthening
Free form dance as a celebration of life
Deep rest to unwind, replenish, restore
Sharing with group or partner at the end of class to connect with the other women in the circle.

What is the feminine path of yoga? Why is it for women?

In the male lineage of yoga, enlightenment is the goal.
In the female, earth based path of awakening, rich, vivid aliveness is the goal.

How to take class:

The Amba Yoga practice is designed for women of all ages and body types.  You are encouraged to customize the practice for your body and sense into what it needs. The class can be as gentle or as energetic as feels right for you.

The primary goal of the Amba Yoga practice is that you enjoy yourself. You will be guided to let go, trust yourself, and find the movement that feels good to your body.

A note from Meghan Morris, founder of Amba Yoga:

Right now, more than ever, we as women are being called to shine our light into the world.

To do this requires us to reconnect with the truth that lives within the wilderness of our bodies.

I created Amba Yoga for women to have a safe, nurturing, and playful space in which to unravel, open, strengthen, and remember the feeling of being whole, alive, and connected to the earth. Amba a space for you to come home to your breath, body, and heart as you harmonize with the rhythms of nature.
