She loves to practice a more stimulating yoga style in the morning to increase energy flow like Ashtanga or Vinyasa and a healing Hatha & Yin practice to wind down in the evening. With every practice she combines the rhythm of breath with movement, being mindful & present, connecting with your true self, bringing awareness to your alignment & healing to where it is needed most.

"The perfect yoga retreat balance"

The pace of the programme. Nothing felt rushed ... we had lots of time to wind down, have long chats with each other, go for a walk, spend time on our own, read a book, have a massage, take our time over meals, as well as feeling we did a good amount of yoga and meditation.

"Wonderful and rejuvenating retreat"

The location, the food, the yoga, the meditation and the company were just perfect. Amber cultivated a relaxed and open atmosphere and I felt such a familiarity with everyone there. I left feeling very calm and peaceful, which lasted for days, and I've learnt things about myself, about yoga, mediation and vegan food, which will last even longer!

"Just what I needed!"

The weekend retreat was great, food was delicious, really nice people all round and varied yoga & meditation sessions. It was lovely to be looked after and nourished, with time to read, reflect etc. The sound session on Saturday evening was amazing. Hopefully I can keep the relaxed mindful state going for a while longer.

"A serene weekend break "

The house was stunning with beautiful views. Amber created such a welcoming environment perfect to switch off and focus on the self for the weekend. The food was gorgeous and plentiful. And the mixture of yoga, sound and movement was a great combination. This was just what I needed to escape the hectic London life for a couple of days.

"A restorative and nourishing weekend "

This was the most wonderful experience I have ever had. Amber, was the perfect yoga teacher, calm but joyous, encouraging and therapeutic. I felt like a different person when I left. The food was beautiful and Rob was just the best cook ever.

Ali is a very gifted healer and her reflexology skills and massage was truly wonderful

"Beautiful birthday treat..."

Amber created a welcoming and nurturing atmosphere which allowed people to come together as a group or to spend quiet time reading and relaxing. She also led the yoga sessions and sound bath and qi gong. I particularly enjoyed the sound healing and qi gong, both of which were new to me. Alison gave me a fantastic treatment combining massage, accupressure and Reiki which left me so relaxed I slept for an hour and a half afterwards, and Rob produced delicious vegan food the whole weekend. The accommodation was fabulous too. Spacious and airy, with a wood burning stove and open fire it was both comfortable and warm.

"A dream experience"

I loved everything about this retreat and learnt so much in such a short time. The food was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed the raw food class and being able to talk to our amazing chef so openly. Each yoga class was completely different but amazing too and it's clear to see that Amber is a real specialist who adores what she does. She created the most beautiful and calming atmosphere from the moment we walked in the door, where everybody could do and be as they wanted. My mum and I did our morning meditations and yoga sessions in our pyjamas, it was that relaxed! By the end of the retreat I felt like I had found myself again and was completely grounded and inspired. I keep referring back to my positive affirmation that Amber asked us to create and it is changing my life. I will definitely be going to another of her retreats - it was an incredible weekend

The whole weekend from start to finish was perfect. Amber, Rob & Ally were a perfect team and a joy to spend the weekend with. Amber is a incredible yoga teacher. By the end of the weekend I felt like I had been taken apart and put back together properly, mind, body and spirit. The food, accommodation, structure on the days was just perfect. I didn't want it to end.. I will definitely be back.

"A Beautiful Experience"

Amber created a wonderful relaxed environment for the weekend enabling a group of strangers to become connected. Smooth clear instruction and well targeted tweaks to enhance technique were beautifully given and the mix of yoga styles made each session interesting and different and her mindfulness enabled an enhanced spiritual connection.

"Excellent Retreat and beautiful teacher!"

Amber is a great teacher: patient, kind, knowledgeable (she integrates a few different types of yoga) and the environment she creates is very holding and nurturing. She also offers great info on food e.g. how to make delicious raw food!

Richard Williams

The location, absolutely beautiful. A great mix of people, and with lack of phone signal and TV, we sat and "spoke" :) Just like it used to be.

I really enjoyed the mix of yoga, and learnt a lot of new things. Also learning that vegan food can taste so good.

"Life changing experience"

Everything about this retreat was amazing, I felt I took something new away with me from each session that I now apply in my daily routine. I felt at ease as soon as I stepped into the house, and this feeling was carried with me throughout the weekend. The house is beautiful, it's in a special place and the atmosphere there is so warm and cozy! The morning meditation outside overlooking the lake was incredible! I am fairly new to yoga, and I felt as though the sessions were perfect for all levels, with the opportunity to push myself when I wanted to, and the reminder to rest when I needed to and to listen to my body. I ended up doing a headstand which is a huge achievement for me! The massage I had was beautiful, and the wild lake swim although very cold was a complete rush, and the experience brought the group closer together! The food was incredible!! I felt completely nourished the entire time, and by the end of the weekend my skin was so soft! I'm putting that down to the morning juice! During my free time I also went on a walk up to the waterfall, a 15 minute drive away, which was beautiful!

I overcame a lot of anxieties, and pushed myself mentally and physically to the limit during this trip, and I feel so much stronger now. I have learnt so much about myself, yoga and healthy food, and I am already adapting this knowledge into my life! Thank you so much:)

I have been searching for the perfect yoga teacher in Hastings for some time now. I am happy to say that I have finally found her! I have been attending Amber's classes for a few weeks now. I love how she fuses together different styles of yoga, including hatha, iyengar and ashtanga, to create her own unique style of teaching. Amber is an engaging, passionate and mindful yoga teacher. She is very attentive to everyone in her class and ensures that they work to their maximum capabilities. She creates a beautiful relaxing atmosphere, with the use of candles, incense, chanting, tibetan singing bowls, bells, meditation and deep breathing exercises. Her instructions are flowing, soothing and calm. I leave each class on cloud 9, feeling amazing - relaxed, fully stretched and opened out and I can't wait to return the following week.

I just want to let people know how much of a B-E-A-UTIFUL weekend I had at the 'Awakening Spring Yoga Retreat' in the Lake District.

I had a completely serene experience the whole time. Set in the most breathtaking landscapes, our home was an old stone farmhouse which is found through a gap in a hedge and across a bridge over mini waterfalls!

Whilst in our little hideaway not a single bother from the outside world was allowed to penetrate the bliss we felt... I have never slept so well.

Through the early morning Qigong classes with Ivan I learnt a lot about myself and about the powers I hold within. I learnt how harnessing the earth's energy can put you in touch with yourself and everything beyond yourself which feels absolutely amazing.

I really enjoyed the yoga classes which were set in the most perfect atmosphere. Even as a beginner in yoga I had no trouble learning under the teaching of the tranquil Amber, as she addressed us softly, gently and fluently, guiding us through each movement. The evening yoga mediation sessions were so peaceful that some of my fellow retreaters fell asleep during the class.

I also very much enjoyed learning about natural, healthy nutrition in the raw food workshops, aswel as having fun whilst we made yummy snacks. By the end of the weekend I felt quite bonded to everyone in the group despite us having been strangers...

What I have gained from this experience cannot be measured, nor can the love I felt from Amber and Ivan in sharing their enlightening way of life! I've definitely grown closer to my own true self and have excelled on my spiritual journey. I can't recommend their retreats enough and will definitely be attending again! I hope to see you there! Peace and Love To All

I spent the most amazing week at Amber's yoga retreat in Menorca. Everything from the location and the food, to the activities and the company were absolutely perfect. We had wonderful daily Qi Gong sessions with Ivan on a beautiful cliff edge followed by great yoga lessons from Amber where I learned so much in just a week. The healthy, fresh and homemade breakfast and dinners were some of the best food I've eaten and were always served with such enthusiasm and a description of how it was made and where the delicious ingredients came from, which made each meal that much more enjoyable! Amber & Ivan also took us to see some gorgeous places where we explored caves and did yoga on the beach. Truly a fantastic experience and I left happy, relaxed, refreshed and very inspired. Thank you both!

Amber's teaching has completely transformed my yoga practice for the better. In class, she clearly and intelligently directs my awareness so that I now appreciate the purpose of each asana and have a stronger connection with my body and the movement of energy through it. Amber encourages us to be curious and explores different postures. The classes are intense, the work goes deep and stays in the body long after the class is over! I highly recommend her class.
