Hi, I'm Amber, a specialist in the field of Physical Education and Mindfulness Based Studies. By infusing the knowledge from all my experiences and credentials (see below) I have created a cohesive program that teaches self awareness, emotional management and vibrant health through physical movement.
I have always felt a tremendous amount of inspiration to move my body. As the Mary Poppins of the teaching world I've covered the map- as a teen in sports, I was an award winning captain. As a pioneer in the use of technology in the classroom, I documented my collaborative approach to dance on YouTube with over 120 videos as a young professional who knew that this was the way to connect with kids long before it was popular. I've taught over 8,000 hours of Physical Education, Yoga, Dance, Leadership and Health in public & private school systems. I've studied dance in West Africa, was a young women's leader in a Buddhist mindfulness organization, and was a principal dancer in a classical modern dance company for 11 years. I continue to study Meditation, Mindful Movement and Dynamic Leadership with a master teacher who has been teaching for over 45 years.
Join Me With Joy!
