Ambra Vallo -
is a former principal ballerina with the Birmingham Royal Ballet. She turned to yoga on a path to recovery from injuries and slowly over the years she fell in love with the more subtle, spiritual parts of the practice. Retiring from dance allowed her the time to focus on her passion and to undertake further training in Ashtanga Vinyasa (500hrs), Dharma Yoga (800hrs), Rocket Yoga (500hrs), Forrest Yoga (200hrs and Advance TT), Tripsichore (200hrs), and Gokul Vinyasa Yoga (300hrs).
Ambra’s teaching is fun and spontaneous following the lineage of Larry Shultz, Ana Forrest, and Sri Dharma Mittra. Since she retired from professional ballet she has been teaching regularly in teacher training courses, and has worked with athletes such as Aston Villa Football Club where she uses yoga to drive better performance. Her aim is to guide others so they may also experience the many amazing benefits of yoga to the body, mind and soul.
