Amber (Veteran/First Responder)
Amber Miskovich is a veteran, firefighter, certified yoga teacher, medic, massage therapist, mama, and dreamer. She never thought she would be doing yoga, let alone teaching yoga, but here she is, doing both!
After her second child, Amber was at her wits end with a colicky baby and stressed mind and body. She had difficulties sleeping. A friend recommended yoga. This was the first time she tried yoga. She soon discovered that it allowed her body to rest. Yoga also helped her mind relax. This experiment with yoga not only helped her sleep, but ultimately changed her entire life.
Amber's passion is to bring healing to those that feel they are the least healable, and to those least likely to walk through a yoga studio. She offers free yoga to military service members, first responders, and frontline healthcare workers at her two yoga studios, The Wonder Within, in Westerville, Ohio. Amber is certified in Baptiste Power Yoga, and teaches a variety of classes including iRest Yoga Nidra, Yin, Restorative, Power, and Flow yoga classes.
The pose featured on this greeting card is a Side Plank (Sanskrit: Vasisthasana). It strengthens the arms, wrists, abdominal muscles and legs, as well as improves balance and focus. This card highlights fire fighters who so selflessly serve their communities and nation in times of disaster.
