We took one of the best Instagram Live classes with teacher Amber Stratton of Pure Yoga.

And you know that we love taking class! If you’ve been a reader over the past nine-years, you know we’ve tried classes all over the USA and Canada… NYC, LA, Chicago, Toronto… and now we’re having the experience of meeting teachers online – specifically through Instagram Live.

Nothing at all beats the incredible experience of taking a LIVE class with a teacher. It’s just that simple. Their voice, touch (yes, remember that?) their energy and how it permeates every inch of the room.

During our time of staying at home, staying safe – all of our favourite teachers and studios have headed online. IG Live is a particularly brilliant way to deliver a class… and at around 10am, noon and 5pm… our alerts go bananas! 

This week we found a teacher completely new to us: Amber Stratton of Pure Yoga based in Ottawa. And get this… it’s like you’re in the studio with her. She’s an amazing teacher that takes over this gorgeous space and teaches you to move, sweat and cry (why not – no one’s watching!).

It’s one of the few classes I’ve experienced lately where you really get transported out of your bedroom/office/yoga studio and can let go. She takes over the space with her clear instruction and her incredible selection of music. Someone actually asked during class if Amber ‘could DJ her life?’ Weirdly I had the same question but I was too busy sweating to type it as a comment.

Rigorous, repetitious and easy to follow with INCREDIBLE tunes. The class I took is called Ritual. 

Enjoy and thank you Amber!
