Welcome Back Ambra!
We are saving the best for last in 2022 – capping off this great year with the amazing Ambra Vallo! Ambra visits us from London where she resides and teaches yoga, and is a former principal ballerina with the Birmingham Royal Ballet.
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).
In Austin Ambra is teaching an introduction to her signature Hatha Raja Vinyasa Krama teacher training. Our 3 day training at Yoga East Austin will count towards 25 CE hours of her 200 & 300 hour programs.
It is intended for beginner and experienced yoga practitioners, and will provide a glimpse into her more complete teacher trainings she offers in Europe and online. You do not have to be a teacher nor desire to be one to enjoy this 3 day training weekend. Simply, you just have to enjoy practicing and learning yoga to participate. Ambra is one of the best in the world and we are happy to spend this time learning from her.
About the training:
Hatha refers to the mastery of the body, Raja refers to the mastery of the mind. Vinyasa is the principle of synchronizing movement and breath, and Krama means steps or stages.
Hatha Raja Vinyasa Krama is the practice of mastering body and mind, synchronizing breath and movement, while using a wise progression into proceeding poses.
Rather than performing each asana as an independent pose disconnected from the whole, vinyasa krama mimics the flowing energy of the universe. The mind, body and breath are unified into a state of harmony. Vinyasa krama also uses variations of each asana to open the potential of the mind and body.
Ambra uses all of her learning, from all of her teachers, to put together the sequencing for the classes in this training. Each morning will consist of a complete practice and each afternoon she will breakdown, workshop style, hip, spine, and inversion asanas. Each day will include 2 asana practices complete with morning and afternoon kriyas, pranayama, and meditation, plus a daily afternoon workshop.
