Yogaeira™ is a one of a kind practice created by Amber Campion. In 2010 the practice birthed simply as a fusion of yoga, capoeira, and thai bodywork. Today, though still rooted in Yogic and Capoeira philosophy, the practice has evolved into a practice much richer in content and purpose.


Yogaeira™ : Dynamic Release Method supports clearing the pathways towards Evoking purpose, Empowering truth and Embodying potential. The effects of the practice seek to revitalize the nervous system and keep dis-ease from evolving into one word: disease. It is a balancing and grounding flow fusing both Yang (active) and Yin (passive) energies. 


This unique yoga practice uses tools from martial arts, bodywork, & energy work, as well as powerful motivational & transformative mind over matter techniques used by high end performers, such as professional athletes, in achieving a higher state of consciousness and ability. An integrative and holistic experience that incorporates transformative mind/body tools such as Pranayama (breath work), Kundalini kriyas, Qi Gong, Meditation, Affirmations, Anchoring techniques, Visualization, and the healing powers of Bodywork, such as Thai massage and SMR (self myofascial release).


Partner work as well as call and response chanting are also part of this practice at times.  It is a physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually transformative practice that is challenging, yet accessible. 


Yogaeira™ creator, Amber Campion, has immersed herself since 2006 in the practice of cultivating awareness and mindfulness through the  ancient arts of Yoga, Martial Arts, & Bodywork. Her ability to create sequences that are creative, technical, focused, and playful make her accessible to all levels of practitioners. 


The practice of Yogaeira™ moves you through slow (like moving through water) organic movements, such as waving of the spine and moving around the mat 360 degrees, staying low to ground and finding one’s own “mandinga,” or natural expression/magic within the flow.


Yogaeira™ is a balance between discipline and play and requires a deep focus and kinetic awareness while also staying in tune with your inner fluidity and instinctual call of movement.  Students have the opportunity to cultivate deep core strength and an inner sense of lightness.  Headstands, handstands, arm balances, backbends, and signature Yogaeira™ postures such as Negativasana and Queda De Rins Asana are playfully and mindfully explored.


Everything is simply an invitation to explore.  Each student should come with an open mind and acknowledge themselves as their own master in which they know their bodies best. However, trying new things is encouraged, especially the things that bring up fear and doubt, as these are the places in which your potential will really begin to develop and shine.

In Yogaeira™, the practices of yoga, martial arts, and bodywork meet in spirit and purpose. These practices seek and encourage self-awareness as well as a deep appreciation and clarity of the power that stems from union/community/relationship/partnership. The physical practice of yoga, martial arts and of bodywork require focus and discipline and with time, the practitioner will see improvement not only physically, but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Music, prayer/gratitude, respect, community, philosophy, spirit, energy and the open invitation to all, are a few commonalities of these three arts.

About this sequence:

Athletic and vigorous at times. This sequences pace was created to help the practitioners heart rate speed up, building endurance and cardiovascular fitness (capoeira conditioning) with moments of holding for the breath to deepen (yogic breath). It is a dynamic practice, however you are given options to hold or take more basic versions so you can be where you are at and build up to the full practice with time.

At times you will move 180 or 360 degrees around the mat working on agility and coordination as well as deep listening and focus.

DVD Special Features

Technique Tutorial: In this chapter Amber will teach some of the more challenging signature postures and transitions, as well as explain how to properly practice the pranayama she offers in this DVD. Pranayama (breathwork) is offered throughout the flow, helping to release dopamine to enhance mental clarity and focus.


Self Bodywork Techniques: This chapter will guide you through 3 of Ambers favorite self body work techniques that will help you to maintain a healthy mind and body.  Body work triggers your parasympathetic nervous system, turning down your "fight or flight" reactive mind and releasing serotonin (enhances calmness, improves mood, lessens depression) and endorphins (the body's "natural high" which gives pain relief and pleasure when released).


Capoeira Demonstration: By Palmeira (Amber Campion) & Cabrito (Josh Trinidad)
