Off to Harbin Hot Springs..daily yoga needed! Def some moderate weakness and tightness (calcification/estrogen-ization) in this body to be addressed..I'll go further with it when I get back to Lima with daily personalized yoga-pilates work guided virtually via skype by Amber Zuckswert.
I was extremely impressed with Amber's physical capabilities (strength and flexibility), her holistic health knowledge, and her positive vibe and presence after attending the San Fran weekend retreat she led along with Bethanne Wanamaker. I could easily find an inexpensive personal trainer in Lima for yoga and/or pilates, but I feel that paying more for the opportunity to work personally (even though virtually) with someone that I know is extremely dedicated to what she does and truly knows her stuff, and also understands nutrition in a deep way and does it in the way that I also found works best for maximizing total health, flexibility, vibe, and resonance (raw food and superfood based), is very important to me. This kind of wise investment in myself should pay me back many times over in multiple ways!

I want to tell you that I had a fantastic time with you in Mexico! After that trip I realized that I had forgotten how to play. I also enjoyed all the chats we had on yoga, food, outlook on life, what you wanted and just hanging out, what a pleasure. I came back happy and renewed. I reassessed some of the things I was doing and have made a few changes to keep the experience alive. I lost ten pounds, started eating organic and bought a Vitamix. Thank you for the inspiration. All the best to a beautiful woman, inside and outside.

I would like to share my experiences with my Pilates Trainer Amber Zuckswert. My major life commitment is to stay flexible and continue to participate in all the sports I enjoy. Given sixty eight years of a great life with accidents abound and lots of great memories, Amber Zuckswert keeps me in touch with the flexibility felt when I was eighteen years old. This is truly a gift. Amber understands what structural components in one’s body blocks movement, and how to release these frozen positions. As a great instructor, I recommend her 100%.

"Amber really knows how to make you work and motivate you to work harder! She is very knowledgeable about the body and has great insight into the mechanics of the body, she really maximizes my Pilates workout! I feel confident in her as an instructor because she is very aware of and sensitive to the needs of my body. Thanks to her, I am feeling stronger than ever!"

"Pilates with Amber was an incredible experience! 6 hour-long sessions helped me learn to slow my mind and listen to my body, and I moved and used muscles I didn't know existed! I've always been a huge fan of yoga but the one-on-one pilates training was an entirely different experience. I learned more in one session with Amber than in one-month of yoga, and I began to feel the impact on my life and body immediately. I'd recommend Amber to anyone who's looking to incorporate a consistent fitness routine that works, especially those who've tried yoga or dance programs in the past."

"I've tried years to find the right type of work out where I would actually look forward to the next one. Thankfully I found the perfect combination with Amber and pilates - it's the best experience I've ever had! She tailors each session to help me reach my goals and carefully watches my movements so I don't cheat, which I often like to do. She's a fantastic instructor who pushes me to my strive harder and get better each time we meet. If you're looking for a dedicated instructor who's experienced, professional and pushes you farther - Amber's the best you'll find!"

"Amber has uncanny knack for pushing me to my limit, motivating the heck out of me and keeping a smile on my face, all at the same time. She's unbelievably knowledgeable about all of the intricacies of the human body and nuances of movement, and not afraid to geek out about the sacrum and the psoas. Plus, she gives me the workout of a lifetime every single week; what more could you ask for?"

"I just got done with an awesome body weight pilates workout with Amber from Epicself. I have been a regular reader of the blog for quite some time now and almost always find something interesting to think about reading it. Recently, I was excited because she launched a Virtual Pilates exercise session using the amazing skype service.
After spending two whole days deciding what to say I submitted the application for a free one hour session and lo and behold I actually got chosen!"- Read the rest of this review here...

"Just took a Pilates class online. Such a great concept when stuck back home for spring break! And now I can say I did something of benefit when I return to my dance rehearsals and classes! :D Thank you Amber Zuckswert! It was awesome! Those of you who missed out need to tune in next time."
