Amber is founder of Alma Yoga. With Alma, meaning soul in Spanish, she aspires to help people reconnect to their inner world and encourage them to express their uniqueness – on and off the yoga mat.
Being a dynamic woman that loves to dance and move – yoga helped her to also find stillness and feel more grounded. Years ago she immersed herself in a Yoga teacher training in Costa Rica. In a small town on the Caribbean coast she founded Alma Yoga and started teaching daily to both locals and tourists. Since then she can’t imagine a more beautiful yoga practice than in the midst of nature.
Her teachings are fresh, flowing, creative and can be challenging. She focuses on correct alignment in poses – so that your practice remains safe and is more beneficial. In 2017 she finished the advanced study of Yoga therapy, which enables her to use yoga as a tool for people who suffer from stress, trauma, depression and psychosis. This knowledge is interwoven in her classes
Debbie is founder of OHMat, Dutch Design Yoga Mats, a 200RYT yoga teacher, Thai Yoga Massage therapist, co-founder/teacher of other Yoga retreats and writer at Holistik online magazine. She has studied Yoga (philosophy) for more then 10 years in India and other parts of the world. It was since 2014 when she stepped out of her comfort zone and lived for a while in Bali. There she passed her teacher training and started to teach Yoga in a local temple of a Jero Hindu Priestess. And continued ever since as a nomad Yoga teacher.
Through renunciation, for getting better health, she found her Spiritual path that has lead her home. A peaceful place that she found untouched in her heart. Students share that she gives inspiration in her teachings to go deeper. Not only in the poses, but also to reach within. Her classes are a variation and always guided by her intuitive heart. She will hold the space for you to safely grow your heart desire.
