Meet The Trainers

Amber first became enamored with yoga as a three year old when her mother would come home from classes at the Y and show her poses. At some point, her mom wasn’t able to keep up with yoga as a single parent. For Amber, this is where the desire to make yoga accessible has its earliest roots.

Later, in junior high and high school, Amber became interested in both metaphysics and eastern philosophy and noticed that everything seemed to lead back to yoga. She started with meditation and breathwork, finally tried asana at home with videos, and eventually became brave enough to take Kundalini classes at a Seattle community center. It took her years after that to summon the courage for studio yoga. All of the magazines and videos showed one body type (and age, gender, skin color, etc.) doing very advanced poses. Studio yoga seemed inaccessible and intimidating. This is where the spirit of Cambio was really summoned as Amber would catch herself daydreaming about a yoga studio that was donation and community based…one where every single person felt welcome and included. The idea seemed a true flight of fancy at the time as she hadn’t even become a yoga teacher or done any formal yoga training.

She finally started a 200 hour teacher training in 2005 and then took another in 2007. One of her teachers, Deanna Brown, taught donation classes from home, which showed Amber that it could indeed be done. As an elementary school teacher, she couldn’t afford to do a regular studio practice and, despite realizing not everyone in yoga class looked like the people in the magazines, she had never found a studio that really felt comfortable and welcoming—like coming home. She couldn’t even begin to imagine what it was like for people with greater financial, physical, or social-construct barriers. And so, in 2009, she began this crazy, beautiful adventure with her brother, Austin, to make yoga accessible to all in the Colorado Springs area.

Amber is a forever-student. She has done 300 hour/yoga therapy trainings with both Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga and Ayurveda and Inner Peace Yoga Therapy. She is a Registered Experienced 500 Hour Yoga Teacher and Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance as well as a Certified Yoga Therapist with International Association of Yoga Therapists. In August of 2020, she completed a 300 hour Yoga Philosophy training with Embodied Philosophy.

Through her trainings, her goal is to continue to make quality yoga and yoga teachings accessible to ALL. The more she learns, the more she can share with this amazing community. She is especially passionate about teaching yoga philosophy, practices beyond asana, and yoga history in Cambio teacher trainings, where she has used her yoga learnings and her Masters in Teaching to co-create curriculum that she hopes allows students to go deeper into the yoga tradition, to transform and inspire, and to ultimately realize that they are already whole.

Her life’s mission is to use the powers of love and creativity to contribute to the lives of others. She is humbled and grateful to be able to serve others by being a steward of Cambio. It is such a cherry on top (to say the least) that she gets to do this work with her brother, Austin, and a brilliant, dedicated team of teachers, program leaders, and fellow yogis.

Beyond yoga and Cambio, Amber loves to hike, spend time with loved ones (animals included!), read, and do creative projects around her home.

Austin Richman :: Cambio Co-Founder, Lead Teacher :: E-RYT 500
 
Austin believes that any sincere practitioner of yoga can benefit from taking a Tecaher Training and part of his intention in training is to forget what you know and start with an open and clear mind, as he takes the journey along with the student. Working with teachers in training is something he has been fortunate to be doing over the course of the last decade having his hand in helping well over 200 students make the profound transformation to become teachers. His teaching style is philosophical and practical and his ethos is "don't take my word for it, find out for yourself!" The trainings he and his sister Amber have developed are meant to meet the student where they are at and designed with multiple teaching styles incorporated throughout to suit any and all learning styles. He and Amber have worked hard to make sure that their trainings offer both the pragmatic aspects to help one excel in the profession but also well rounded in all the work that goes into self-care to ensure that the trainee comes out with intentions toward achieving their own personal excellence. Austin is an uplifting, philosophical, and challenging teacher who also just so happens to cherish making people laugh. Austin's overarching Yoga philosophy is that we all do yoga and it is a tool meant to aid us in achieving our hghest potential as well as a pathway toward clarity, peace and joy.
 

 lora 1191bLora Lantz :: Lead Teacher :: C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, YACEP

Lora brings over 13 years of teaching experience to inspire her students to discover their brightest selves both on and off the mat. Her classes are inspired by everyday life experiences with well crafted playlists and hands on assists. Through creative sequencing Lora will ask you to do things you never thought you could and loves to see students surprise themselves, no matter what their level of practice. Lora offers a different kind of vinyasa sequence. You won’t know what’s coming yet you know you’re in safe hands as her friendly voice guides you through this adventure. She will meet you on the mat with a heart full of compassion and a smile. Be prepared to move, sweat, laugh, feel, and maybe even sing along from time to time.

Lora's yoga practice was originally inspired in the basement of a gym by a handful of talented instructors. She eventually made her way to Hawaii to study with Baron Baptiste and completed his Level One Teacher Training. Additionally, she holds a current 500 hour E-RYT Yoga Alliance registration. Since her trainings, her teachings have been influenced by many wonderful instructors like Brandon Cox, Kathryn Budig, Rusty Wells, Richard Freeman, Austin Richman, Becca Roodhuyzen, Monika Kaufman, and most of all her fuzzy faced cat, Sofi. If it’s not fun, forget it! You can never get bored in yoga- there’s always something to learn, expand upon, deepen, or explore. Through consistent practice we can find freedom, freedom from our stories that hold us back and through this process together, we can smile, laugh, cry, fall, and celebrate. Shine Brightly!

 

 

 

Testimonials

"I loved my 200 hr training to pieces and I didn't think anything could top it but this program did just that! I felt supported every minute and I didn't think this kind of sangha / friendship is possible. It is truly the best thing I ever did!!!"
 
"The structure, content, and support of cambio’s 300hr Teacher Training is brilliantly efficient. They offer tools of self-transformation for teachers to apply to their own lives as well as to share with their students. My knowledge of yoga philosophy, application of teaching methodologies, and ability to lead different practice styles have all grown dramatically. Under the guidance of the program facilitators, my practice has deepened and evolved in ways previously unfathomable. This program is so much more than a teacher training; it’s a gift that’s finally allowed me to come home in myself."
 
"Cambio's 300 hour teacher training is for anyone who wants to dive deeper into yoga and it's lessons, yes. It will make you a greater teacher, yes. But it is truly for anyone who wants to know themselves more deeply. This program will change you, support you, nurture you, transform you, and it is for you. So give yourself the gift."
 
"This training was the best decision I could have made to support my yoga teaching training. Not only have I grown as a teacher, but I have the confidence to branch out in my teaching to support my students and future clients in deeper ways. And best of all, I have a myriad of ways to take care of my mind, body, and soul."
 
"This program is life changing. I am at a loss for words - from a person born with the gift of gab! I feel like I found myself. The Me I was always supposed to be. A paradigm shift."
 
"LIFE CHANGING!!! I went into this wanting to learn more about how I can help others. I came out of this program with so much more. I learned that I needed these tools for myself first. I applied many of them and I can say I'm forever changed for the better. Every module that was taught goes beyond the mat. I'd also mention that paying for continuing education of any kind can be a risk. This program is more than worth the monetary investment. I walked away with an abundance of knowledge. Working with private clients was something I never thought I had the capability of doing. Having completed the 300 hour program, I'm more than prepared. If you have received your 200 hour certification and there's a small part of you that is interested in the 300 hour go with your gut!! Just make sure you do it at Cambio! In the words of Rumi "You are not meant for crawling. So don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."
