About Amber

A native of USA and relocated to Singapore since 2006, Amber has had a passion for moving the body from early childhood with gymnastics & dance. This love, combined with more than 17 years of study & practice in the areas of Yoga, Ayurveda & Meditation, as well as a PhD in Biomedical Engineering in the field of stem-cell tissue repair, contribute to Amber's unique perspective on healing & self-discovery through the combinatorial influence of scientific and ancient wisdoms. Since 2000, Amber has studied directly under the tutelage of many Masters, learning to share Osho Active Meditations (using sound & movement), as well as has been certified in Yoga-Dance, Universal Yoga, Hatha Yoga & Yin Yoga, Reiki, Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga & MIndful Birth, Elemental Yoga Therapy and Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counseling.

In 2009, Amber founded a community in the heart of Singapore known as Satsanga (www.singasatsanga.com) where she offers weekly active meditation classes, yoga, kirtans & community events, as well as Elemental Wellness consultations (1:1). Her beautiful partner, Daniel, joined her at Satsanga in November 2014, and together they are running Satsanga and sharing many heart offerings.
