Inspired by 20 years in the worlds of medicine and yoga, Erica bridges her unique experiences as a Yoga Therapist and Physician Assistant to share a holistic perspective of health and wellness. She is a gifted leader and facilitator who provides valuable and fulfilling experiences for her students.

This program was built under the management of Cambio's YTT Director:

Amber first became enamored with yoga as a three year old when her mother would come home from classes at the Y and show her poses. At some point, her mom wasn’t able to keep up with yoga as a single parent. For Amber, this is where the desire to make yoga accessible has its earliest roots

Later, in junior high and high school, Amber became interested in both metaphysics and eastern philosophy and noticed that everything seemed to lead back to yoga. She started with meditation and breathwork, finally tried asana at home with videos, and eventually became brave enough to take Kundalini classes at a Seattle community center. It took her years after that to summon the courage for studio yoga. All of the magazines and videos showed one body type (and age, gender, skin color, etc.) doing very advanced poses. Studio yoga seemed inaccessible and intimidating. This is where the spirit of Cambio was really summoned as Amber would catch herself daydreaming about a yoga studio that was donation and community based…one where every single person felt welcome and included. The idea seemed a true flight of fancy at the time as she hadn’t even become a yoga teacher or done any formal yoga training.

She finally started a 200 hour teacher training in 2005 and then took another in 2007. One of her teachers, Deanna Brown, taught donation classes from home, which showed Amber that it could indeed be done. As an elementary school teacher, she couldn’t afford to do a regular studio practice and, despite realizing not everyone in yoga class looked like the people in the magazines, she had never found a studio that really felt comfortable and welcoming—like coming home. She couldn’t even begin to imagine what it was like for people with greater financial, physical, or social-construct barriers. And so, in 2009, she began this crazy, beautiful adventure with her brother, Austin, to make yoga accessible to all in the Colorado Springs area. 

Amber is a forever-student. She has done 300 hour/yoga therapy trainings with both Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga and Ayurveda and Inner Peace Yoga Therapy. She is a Registered Experienced 500 Hour Yoga Teacher and Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance as well as a Certified Yoga Therapist with International Association of Yoga Therapists. In August of 2020, she completed a 300 hour Yoga Philosophy training with Embodied Philosophy. 

Through her trainings, her goal is to continue to make quality yoga and yoga teachings accessible to ALL. The more she learns, the more she can share with this amazing community. She is especially passionate about teaching yoga philosophy, practices beyond asana, and yoga history in Cambio teacher trainings, where she has used her yoga learnings and her Masters in Teaching to co-create curriculum that she hopes allows students to go deeper into the yoga tradition, to transform and inspire, and to ultimately realize that they are already whole.

Her life’s mission is to use the powers of love and creativity to contribute to the lives of others. She is humbled and grateful to be able to serve others by being a steward of Cambio. It is such a cherry on top (to say the least) that she gets to do this work with her brother, Austin, and a brilliant, dedicated team of teachers, program leaders, and fellow yogis.

Beyond yoga and Cambio, Amber loves to hike, spend time with loved ones (animals included!), read, and do creative projects around her home.
