I share a mindfulness-based approach to hatha yoga in Austin, Texas. Whether in a vigorous flow or a restorative stretch, the priority is to deepen awareness and alleviate suffering. I teach workplace wellness classes and private lessons. Beginners and those with physical limitations are always welcome. Because I love what I teach, I share our class themes under the “Journal” tab.

Please RSVP for classes and make appointments at amberasteryoga@gmail.com.

With much metta,

What’s an “aster”?

The wildflower aster is, for me, a beautiful symbol of the self. The name of this small, weedy wildflower translates as “star.” This one word holds within it both a sweet, tiny, fragile thing and a great, spectacular, cosmic being. Sounds a bit like you and me.

“The Greek word for ‘star,’ aster, is both a scientific and a common name. Asters are cosmopolitan in their distribution, growing in a variety of habitats from near sea level to the summits of the highest eastern mountains.” -Wildflowers in Color field guide

“All things by immortal power,
Near and Far
To each other linked are,
That thou canst not stir a flower
Without troubling of a star.”
-Francis Thompson
