Strength and Flexibility

Saturday July 13th, 10 am-12 pm & 4pm-6pm, with Ambra Vallo, at Yoga Roof Lugano South. In Italian with some English possible

Un intera giornata dove andremo a costruire forza e flessibilità

Sul tappetino, come nelle nostre vite, stiamo cercando l’equilibrio tra la nostra flessibilità e la nostra stabilità. Se abbiamo solo flessibilità nella nostra pratica di asana, questo può significare che non abbiamo abbastanza stabilità per mantenere il nostro corpo e le nostre articolazioni al sicuro. Se tendiamo più verso la forza, questo può significare che
abbiamo muscoli corti che non sono in grado di proteggere adeguatamente il corpo, poiché spostano le articolazioni fuori allineamento costringendole a sopportare un peso che non sono destinate a sorreggere.

Price for the full day: 89 CHF

Early bird for both Ambra’s workshops (Strength & Flexibility & Hippy Hips): 120 CHF by booking and paying before May 31th.

Reservation for workshops are binding. If for any reason you should not be able to attend a workshop you are signed up for, we kindly ask you to cancel your reservation with at least 24 hour notice. Should this not be the case, the class will be billed. 

Ambra Vallo: is a former principal ballerina with the Birmingham Royal Ballet. Throughout her career she enjoyed the chance to perform on stages all around the world. She turned to yoga on a path to recovery from injuries that naturally result from the strenuous training regime, and as well as becoming a hobby she also credits it with helping to enhance and prolong her career. 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, has worked with performers and athletes helping to rethink their traditional training regimes and introduce yoga to drive better performance and increase their enjoyment of sport and performance. Her aim is to guide others so as they may also experience the many amazing benefits of yoga to the body, mind and soul. At the moment she is the yoga instructor at Aston Villa football club.
