Amber was a dancer for 11 years, always fascinated by movement and sports. Her mother, Liora Houbara, is a Dietitian specialising in Chinese medicine and herbs and an NLP Master. Amber’s yoga journey began in a studio in her home town of Tel Aviv, Israel. She was inspired by her teachers in the ‘way of yoga’, that it is not only a physical workout, rather a work-in. She began practicing Hatha, Vinyasa, Integrative yoga (inspired by Iyengar), Kundelini, and Ashtanga. It was when she started practicing Mysore (with Shirly Caspi and Alit Bar Sade), that she learnt and tapped into her own self practice. Her thirst for exploration of life took her to travel the world and this further enabled her to strengthen her self practice.
In 2015 through suffering abdominal pain, she found relief with deep Kriya Yoga and this inspired her to share the magic of yoga with others. She decided to do her first YTT in Bali Indonesia in 2016 and started teaching only private classes and small groups along with workshops, as she felt it was the right way to begin to teach yoga.
In 2017 she returned to Israel for a visit and had the honour to participate in an Intensive Yoga for Teachers Course with Maty Ezraty. Maty has been a huge inspiration in Amber’s yoga practice. Maty encouraged her to explore Iyengar, so Amber enrolled in Beginner Iyengar and Iyengar for Joints and Spine for 6 consecutive months, and only then stepped up to Iyengar Level 1.
In 2017 Amber also joined her good friend Noga Weiss on her first Yin YTT. Noga also introduced Amber to Cranio-Sacral Therapy and to Adolf Brown, who later became one of her CST teachers. In 2019 Amber began training in Cranio-Sacral Therapy in a small study group with Adolf Brown and Chris Skeidmore in Bali.
In 2019, Amber also attended her first Vipassana course in Malaysia. She found that it deepened her understanding of yoga, buddhism and moreover - why and how we practice for our own salvation. Vipassana, incorporated with yoga and energetic work, has become part of her life practice.
Amber’s Yin journey along with her Vipassana practice, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, and her knowledge of NLP and Chinese Medicine has integrated into a nourishing Yin Yoga teaching that she is excited to pass on to others.
In 2020 Amber deepened her self practice and began teaching in studios in Australia as well. Amber has completed a pranayama course with AJ and Indra Mohan, and deepened her understanding of it. In 2021 Amber started practicing with Matthew Sweeney and she has been inspired by his beautiful way of understanding and respecting one’s body and mind. Amber is certified for Sound Massage by Peter Hess Academy Australia (2021)
Through the journey of exploration, training, practice and open mind and heart, Amber’s teachings have found their course and continue to strengthen.
“Besides the reason that amber an amazing human being she’s a great yoga teacher.
Before my yoga lesson, she asked me about my yoga experience, if I have any injuries, what kind of yoga I’m practicing, and what do I seek from yoga.
With my answers, she made me a yoga lesson that was the best for me at that time. During the class, she explained and show me how to fix basic mistakes that I have done without even noticing (I’m practicing yoga for few years with different teachers) and we worked on that until I got it right, it was the first time that a yoga teacher notice and explained me about my mistakes.”
