More about Amber Gean


Yoga choose me instead of me choosing it.
I had always had an interest in yoga, what it was and how I could understand it better.
At the age of 20 in the year 2000 I took a yoga teacher training with Larry Schultz. That was when I really felt yoga take hold of my life and that was where I was introduced to the Rocket practice.
When I began practicing teachers like Larry Schultz and Pattabi Jois were still alive and you had access to more teachers like Tim Miller, Johnny Kest, Chuck Miller and Maty, Beryl Bender Birch and Lino Miele. It was a time when yoga was on the cusp of being really big and I sought guidance from as many teachers as I could study from. Larry was and is my favorite tho.
Yoga and the practice gave me a connection to my purpose.Yoga turned me into a wandering gypsy and has brought me to places all over the world. I assisted in yoga trainings in  British Columbia at It's Yoga Vancouver and began traveling regularly to It's Yoga San Francisco. Currently both those studios are closed however I still plan to return to those cities to train yogis in Rocket sequencing.
I have  also traveled to India to visit Buddhist monasteries. All these doors opened up because of yoga.
There is a difference of staying strong and being spiritual in touch with yourself that difference is yoga. It guides you to the inner teacher. liberation. It guided me to open my studio in 2007 in Cincinnati named Yoga ah. Yoga ah Studio offers Rocket Yoga classes everyday. We are one of the few studios in the world that offer these types of classes exclusively. We also have developed Advanced Rocket Teacher Training and currently have had yogis as far as Australia to learn The Rocket.
As we see some of the older yoga instructors passing, it is even more important to continue the teachings.
My mission is to bring more people together thru yoga and The Rocket. The trainings make this real, they have the power to bring people together. The whole idea of yoga is to create UNION not only with ourselves, but also each other. By having compassion and community for our brothers and sisters we can begin to heal the planet.
Often people walk into It’s Yoga with worry, stress and tiredness written all over their faces but when they leave, they show the effects of Ashtanga Yoga: they feel better and look better, lighter, freer, more relaxed and energized. This is why to me, teaching Ashtanga Yoga is a kind of self-realization; every time I lead class I, as a teacher, grow and express the insights of my own yoga. I see people take in the practice from various angles and develop, change and transcend their limitations, realize their possibilities.
