Product description

About the Author

Amber B. Skylar is a single mother, army veteran, yoga teacher, yoga studio owner, first-time author, and motivational speaker. She champions the human body’s capacity for healthy adaptation and invites women to speak out and overcome societal limitations. Enduring poverty, emotional turbulence, and trauma in her youth, Amber grew painfully conscious of the significance and injustice of social stratification. Years later, dealing with the effects of anxiety, depression, homelessness, rape, and post-traumatic stress disorder, she undertook an intensive study of the human body—in particular the nervous system—as a means of survival. Amber was raised in a family headed by a single mother in urban Ohio. Attempting to make sense of an austere, violent, and abusive childhood, one day she sat on a rooftop and promised herself that she would write a memoir of her life in order to speak on behalf of the silent. Just twelve, the promise reflected the purity of her heart and the nobility of her vision. Almost forty years later, the radiant and haunting memoir Colors of Amber powerfully realizes that promise. Smoldering for decades, Amber’s voice burns incandescently. Amber is the founder and master teacher of Roots Yoga Studio (Yoga with Amber) in Sterling, Virginia. As a Yoga Alliance Registered School, Roots Yoga Studio provides yoga teacher training and leadership programs, workshops, and daily classes. Training and classes are designed for therapeutic benefit and emphasize navigation of pain and stress for productive daily living. She also presents to corporations and others organizations, and works with private clients. Amber B. Skylar resides in Northern Virginia with her pet cat Kikio.

5.0 out of 5 stars The unexamined life is not worth living - Socrates 15 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An amazing easy and engaging read about the author’s "colorful" portraying of events and the effects of growing up the way she did as a female and the struggles women face in a predominately man’s world (especially in the Military). I had to think about the women in my life - sisters, nieces, girlfriends – dealing with their challenges and encounters growing up female. It helped me better understand from previous relationships from a different prospective, and how their background affected their choices beyond the typical vain blaming and judging - or referring to a person's life as "baggage" (daddy issues, jealousy, controlling …). This story closely examines a life - the broken spirit, but also the author’s ability to regain strength - and will force us to bring into retrospect the events in our own lives that shape our decisions and direction. Whoever reads this cannot escape self-examination. It's written that well.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We all love stories of triumph over adversity and Colors of Amber doesn't disappoint. Her memoir takes the reader into the heart and mind of a woman who proves that strength, determination and above all, love, can get us through even the hardest times in life. This is the perfect read for book clubs, women's groups, DV counselors and those needing an inspirational guide through the colors of their own lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and inspiring! 27 Jan. 2014
By lisa kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an amazing story of strength, courage, love, triumph... Very beautifully and poetically written and proof of the resilience of the human spirit and heart to overcome challenges. It will inspire you and give you faith that a person can not only get through difficult times again and again, but can come out the other side with greater love (for self and others), courage, strength, and generosity to help others heal. Read this book, share it widely. It's worth it.
