Amber started doing yoga during residency in 2010 as a way to exercise and release stress. This became one of her favorite ways to practice self-care. In the summer of 2018, she had the amazing opportunity to complete my 200-RYT with emPower School of Yoga funded by the VA (her employer at the time). In addition to teaching with SWY, she is grateful she was able to incorporate yoga into the mental health care for Veterans at the Murfreesboro VA before starting a new position with VA Connecticut in 2020.
She has taught The Phoenix outreach classes at the SWY studio and has worked with The Red White and Blue outreach classes. She now teaches virtual chair yoga with Rolling Hills. Some of her favorite classes to teach have been at Cheekwood; outdoor and in their mansion with beautiful views!
“I love teaching with SWY because of their growth mindset. SWY is an advocate for community wellness and connection as well as teacher development.”
