Yoga instructor Amber Wilcox is a 200-level certified yogi with Yoga Alliance. She received her certificate from My Vinyasa Practice in October 2020. Amber has taken yoga for over 3 years both online and in-person in various styles and types. Her teaching experience and studies are focused on the style of Vinyasa with specialty interests in trauma-informed and adaptive yoga. Prior to yoga, Amber spent 18 years training classically in various dance styles.
Although originally turning to yoga as a means of managing both anxiety and depression—yoga transformed through Amber’s life experiences. Overcoming a traumatic burn injury in April of 2020, Amber used her yoga practice to help with treating and managing her scars. With burns on over 20% of her body, yoga has helped Amber overcome her injury physically—but more importantly to her, mentally. Amber began her journey through yoga in-person only taking hot Vinyasa classes locally in her hometown of Ormond Beach, Florida. During the on-set of COVID-19, she began practicing yoga online both locally and across the globe. As a result, Amber has virtually taken yoga in all 50 states of America, several countries, and continues to expand her practice each day.
