Meet Meghan Morris of Amba School of Embodiment

Today we’d like to introduce you to Meghan Morris.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Meghan. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
It can be so challenging for a woman to live in deep connection with herself in this modern world. Growing up, my biggest challenge was being painfully disconnected from myself, my body, and my true nature.

As a teenager, I was isolated, depressed, struggled with eating disorders and was paralyzed by fear. I began to practice yoga in high school, which would be the beginning of a decade-plus long healing journey.

Of all the healing modalities I sought out, the most powerful tools were some of the simplest: movement, breath, and dance. I developed a new relationship with my body, in which I focused more on how I felt than how I looked. I learned practices that dissolved layers of stress and gripping, which opened up more space for me to experience my true essence.

Out of this journey, Amba was born.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My greatest struggle has been learning how to ground myself. I have a lot of energy, and it’s taken me years to learn how to harness it and use it effectively. When I was in my 20’s I went through extreme highs and lows in energy and emotions. Thankfully, through breath and movement training, I’ve learned how to stay steady and rooted in myself every step of the way.

Please tell us about Amba School of Embodiment.
I created Amba because I want to live in a world where women are deeply nourished and fulfilled, feel at home in their bodies, are in sync with their hearts, and are surrounded by the life-giving support of true. non-competitive sisterhood.

Amba incorporates feminine yoga, movement, and free-form dance to help women to source their unique power within. When a woman’s body and essence are in sync, she becomes an unstoppable force in the world.

Most yoga and dance practiced today teach you how to move from an outer form. Amba is different in that it is a guided exploration that brings women into sensing the movement that wants to arise from within them, leading them into a deeper sense of trust in their bodies’ intrinsic wisdom.

In Amba, I guide women into remembering that they are sacred, wild, and loved. Sacred – Connecting women to their higher selves and wisdom. Wild – Guiding women into their innate primal power. Loved – Teaching women to receive nourishment and support from themselves and the world.

Amba programs include an annual Women’s Embodied Yoga Teacher’s Training, full moon celebrations, monthly women’s circles, private mentoring, and online courses.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
I’ve enjoyed growing Amba every step of the way. While I’ve learned lessons, I wouldn’t change much. I am grateful for the wisdom that comes with experience. If I could go back a few years and tell myself one thing, it would be to trust the process.
