Amber Barry inspires people to live mindfully, with her healthy and relatable approaches to yoga, stress management, and everyday well-being. As a Keynote Speaker, Peak Performance Coach, Founder of Westside Yoga, and Host of Crazy Healthy Radio, she inspires her audiences to adopt self-care practices, that are founded in the ancient discipline of yoga.
Amber discovered yoga in 1998, after a car crash that left her suffering and living in severe pain. She had broken bones all over her body, including her neck, collarbone, shoulders, and pelvic bone, and a traumatic brain injury that caused significant (but temporary) memory issues after the crash. Through daily yoga practice, she learned mindfulness techniques that healed her mind, body, and spirit, and transformed her life. Yoga empowered her to completely rehabilitate her body and her mind. She now lives pain-free, and is thriving.
A former marketing executive, Amber began her teaching and coaching career in 2001, and has been an outspoken advocate of mindfulness, movement, discipline, and plant-based nutrition ever since. She has spoken to thousands of people around the world, at businesses, universities, and religious organizations, about mindfulness, intention-setting, and the importance of managing stress.
Amber founded Westside Yoga in Atlanta in 2015, and it quickly became her community's #happyplace--a sacred space where everyone is invited to drop their burdens and connect with their innate bliss. Since its inception, Westside Yoga has transformed countless lives with its unique and fun approach to yoga.
Here's what our clients are saying about our Mindfulness Trainings:
“Amber’s teachings have helped our employees and clients release stress, and improve their overall wellbeing. Amber provides a wealth of knowledge that helps all of us live more authentically, and to our fullest potential.

“Amber Barry is a truly unique and special person. Her knowledge, energy, and love are thread throughout her teaching. Amber delivers a whole mind and body experience, resulting in improved mental and physical well being. She lives and breathes what she teaches, and it shows in how she dedicated she is to helping her students get the most out of their practice, and how earnest she is in what she teaches. I have come miles from where I started in yoga, due to Amber’s friendly and non-judgmental approach to life. Acceptance, patience, peace, love and strength are virtues that come alive in training with Amber. This what she is meant to do, and many will benefit from her gift.”

“I was introduced to Amber’s teachings while on location in Atlanta for a film shoot. Making a movie involves a hectic schedule with a lot of long hours, little exercise, and a lot of unhealthy food. In the middle of that maelstrom of bad health, Amber was a ray of light. She fit private yoga sessions into my busy shooting schedule. During those practices, she made me, a relative beginner, not only feel comfortable from the first moment I hit the mat, but giving me the tools and confidence to make the practice a daily part of my life. Almost a year later, I still practice what I learned from Amber every day — even now from my home in California, 2,000 miles away. I also arranged a private yoga session with her and one of our A-list actors and he raved about her as well. Amber is a brilliant instructor, and I highly recommend her business!”

“I have studied yoga on and off for several years and with different coaches. Amber Barry is by far the best and most well-rounded coach for whom one could ask! She is always well-organized, knowledgable, and detail-oriented, and her methods are effective and motivating. I have become a continuous student of yoga thanks to her efforts, and my results speak for themselves!”
