More About DRM

DRM: Dynamic Release Method is a complete mind/body/soul recharge practice that fuses yoga postures, breathwork, meditation, mindset techniques, internal martial arts, and self-myofascial release using tennis balls. 

Dynamic: a force that stimulates change or progress within a system or process.

The effects of DRM seek to revitalize the nervous system keeping dis-ease from evolving into one word: disease. It's a balancing and grounding flow fusing both Yang (active) and Yin (passive) energies. This method is designed to build both intelligence and deep release in the physical, emotional, mental, and energetic bodies. Based on the principle of balancing polarities:

Sthira (Stability/Integrity/Refinement)

Sukha (Mobility/Flexibility/Expression)

DRM gracefully guides students to safely develop physical strength, create space for deep release in the body and mind, as well as cultivate the flow of inner power (vital life force), also known as Prana or Qi.


What People Are Saying

Real. That is what I think of when I think of Amber and her teaching. In and out of the studio, on and off the mat, she is true to herself and her work is a reflection of that. She is badass in her own practice and in the work she creates. She is motivating, inspiring, creative, funny and authentically, REAL.
— Sloane Kusmack, Yoga Instructor

Amber is a divine leader and powerful teacher - DRM is one of the best workshops I’ve been to for myself and for learning more about yoga philosophies and techniques! Knowledge from various styles of yoga was presented and each technique was taught with emphasis on form. Definitely take this workshop if you want to expand your understanding of deep emotional release and relaxation.
— Apoorva Rastogi, Engineering Programming Manager at Apple Inc.

I would travel far and wide to take class with you again. I’ve never met a teacher who has come close to the magnificence, presence, skill, and art of your classes.
— Elisha Sophia, Yoga Teacher & Healing Food Chef

“What is real for you?”, she asked the class. “What is real for you right now?”
I admire the authenticity that Amber brings to her teaching. She really does embrace “the beauty and brutality of life”, asking her students to bravely confront whatever they are facing so that they can move forward again. Her no-nonsense attitude reassures students that they are not alone in whatever challenges they are facing. She sugarcoats nothing, but brings humor into her stories at exactly the right moments. While Amber demonstrates some of the poses as she speaks (often just using some arm motions to show how the spine should move, etc.) the vast majority of the time she is walking at a measured pace around the room. The degree of vigilance that Amber employs with regards to her students allows her to correct alignment immediately, and to get a strong sense of how the class is feeling both mentally and emotionally at any moment.
I love that Amber invited her students to engage in “contemplative movement”, listening to their own intuition about how their body should move. At first this instruction seemed difficult for people to follow, but by the end of the class the students really seemed to be totally entranced, listening to their internal voice (perhaps for the very first time). Her classes really take on the art of theater in many ways, and without realizing it her students flow through moments of reflection, of humor, of effort, and of release. It is truly a gift to experience.
