An Introductory Workshop to Postnatal Yoga with Amber Sawyer, Mar 3

Orchard Central
Sunday, 3 March, 2019
2pm - 4.30pm

Are you an expecting mum and would like to prepare for your postpartum recovery? Have you been pregnant and/or are a postpartum woman (whether recently or many years since giving birth)? Would you like to dive deeper into the postpartum recovery and care from a yogic perspective, whether for yourself or for working with others?

Please join us for this introductory workshop on postpartum yoga in which we will explore gentle and effective ways to reintroduce a mother to her new body, to rebuild the pelvic floor and stabilise the core, to manage diastasis recti, and to regain strength and flexibility of the body and mind. This is an excellent opportunity to go deeper into the exercises given in our weekly occurring postnatal yoga classes, as well as to become more familiar with postpartum integration.

This workshop will include theory and practice.

Pregnant mothers are most welcome, as well as women who have miscarried, newly postpartum or many years postpartum, anyone (male/female) working in the birth related field, or yoga teachers looking to expand their knowledge on how to work with postpartum practitioners.

Regular price: $120
Early Bird (by 14 February, 2019): $100


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 20 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.

As a way to find balance among the rigours of a PhD program, Yoga found Amber in 1999. The practice quickly became a way of life, a refuge, and a catalyst for incredible transformations and opportunities. In the years to follow, Amber began to study Ayurveda alongside her biomedical research, finding the bridge between Eastern and Western practices, and further deepening her love of Yoga. Since 2000, Amber has studied directly under the tutelage of many Masters, learning to share Active Meditations (using sound & movement), as well as being certified in more than 900 hours of Universal Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Reiki, Prenatal/Postnatal Yoga & Mindful Birth, Elemental Yoga Therapy and 1400 hours of Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counselling. Among the wealth of trainings that Amber has completed, they include experiences with Krishnamarchya Yoga Mandiram, in the heart of the Anapurna Mountains of Nepal in remote monastic villages, 8 weeks of noble silence and practice in a traditional ashram of India, mentorship with world renowned Ayurveda Acharyas and Vaidyars, pilgrimages to the feet of Masters, and personal study for more than a decade with Sannyasins and other Teachers.

In 2009, Amber founded a community in the heart of Singapore known as Satsanga where she offered and organised weekly active meditation classes, yoga, kirtans, international retreats & community events. For more than 8 years, Amber dedicated to the blossoming of this community, holding space for conscious growth in this urban landscape. After the birth of her little one and the beautiful entry into motherhood, Amber shifted into her current offerings, which include mothering her star-baby, supporting her family, continued work with group immersions and retreats, festival participation & organisation and working on more individual basis through her new venture, Embodied Elementals. This work is a holistic platform for empowering others to find their inner and outer harmony through a variety of practices including breathwork, nutrition, constitutional analysis, yoga, meditation and daily rhythms. Part of this dharma particularly focuses on empowering women to have a conscious pregnancy, birth experience and preparedness for motherhood.

Amber currently resides in Singapore while also traveling internationally, in partnership with her husband (and Little Yogini), to share dance, conscious movement, yoga, meditation, love, laughter and light world wide!
