Vinyasa Flow with Amber B. Gregory – Sunday, July 1, 2018

South Shore Country Club, Hingham, MA

Join Type One as Amber leads our fun and inspirational summertime 75 minute Vinyasa flow sequence. This all-levels event will balance movement and stillness, in a peaceful setting on the grounds of the South Shore Country Club in Hingham, MA. Imagine the beautiful green rolling hills as the backdrop to this flowy event that will balance movement and stillness. The meticulously groomed grounds from the Outdoor Pavilion will offer a tranquil view of the 18th hole while binaural beat and zen garden music playing will create the ambience. Participants will celebrate the glorious Sunday Summertime morning while being led through invigorating sun salutations, twists, poses and core strengthening sequences. The class will close with grounding postures, breathing exercises and our final resting pose, Shavasana, to leave the class feeling reconnected, restored and reignited to take on the day!
Included with this special event is a healthy continental breakfast prepared by our wonderful partners at Raffael’s Hingham. Chilled juices, fresh fruit bowl, assorted mini muffins, yogurts and granola will be served!

Yoga is Amber’s True Passion
Amber’s practice found her over ten years ago and has followed her around with nurturing love ever since. With the completion of her 200 hour yoga teacher certification in 2007, she began to pursue her teaching career in yoga. First, managing the studio part-time and then, teaching as many classes as she could in and around Boston.
This journey through her practice has paved the path for many of the challenges she would face later on in a way that nothing else could have prepared her for.
In 2011, at age 35, she was teaching yoga and running a Bed & Breakfast on Martha’s Vineyard when she was diagnosed with stage 2/3 triple negative breast cancer. Her life was turned upside down. Planning a wedding turned into deciding on a treatment plan for the following year. 16 chemo treatments, two surgeries and 30 days of radiation is what followed. That is what her treatment looked like on paper, but she believes she was saved because of yoga, the community at MGH, and her “tribe.” Students would pop up with messages of love and support when she least expected it, at hospitals, on the street, along with various other places and in moments that you couldn’t predict if you tried. She practiced hot power yoga the day after chemo with a bald head, surrounded by her tribe.
This is what yoga is, a place where we can turn things off and look inside ourselves, without judgement or ego but with vulnerability and humble love. She is 7 years cancer free, a wife and mother of two small children. She has faith and hope and yoga taught her that.
