Amber Hagberg – Lead Facilitator
​Amber Hagberg is a international yoga teacher living in Costa Rica, where she has called home for the last 4 years.
Back in 2008, yoga came into her life at a time of desperation and deep depression where she had no purpose or desire for life. Through the profound transformation that transpired and continues to evolve in her life, Amber’s mission became clear.
She continues to study yoga and learn more about herself so that she is able to better serve her students and give back to yoga what yoga has continuously and unconditionally given her for the last 10 years. She knows that yoga is changing the world, one practice, one human at a time.
When practicing yoga with Amber, you can expect to be taken on a journey inward towards your heart in a space where you feel held and safe to come and be exactly as you are where you are. Amber believes that the yoga mat practice is just the beginning.
​The fruits of the practice come when we use the tools and lessons, we discover and uncover on our yoga mat in our daily lives. “We are all in this together. One heart beat, one breath at a time.” – Amber
