Rocket Yoga – Inversions & Arm Balances Workshop with Ambra Vallo
Following on from the successful April workshop, Ambra is back with another Rocket Workshop. You ask, we deliver:) In May, flip your world and see it from a different perspective – upside down. New to inversions? Let Ambra show you safe and easy ways in and out of balances. For seasoned flying Rocketeers, practice some new drills to discover new possibilities.
Rocket Yoga is a playful and uplifting style of yoga, designed to create incredible strength, flexibility and balance. If you’ve been practising for a few months and are ready to step it up, you’re going to LOVE this. Not suitable for yoga newbies…but as Ambra likes to say, “This is yoga practice not yoga perfect….”
Created in San Francisco, Rocket has gained global recognition as a feel-good experience to open the body and clear the mind. Prepare to release your inner child and take your energy levels to new heights with arm balances, back bends and plenty of giggles.

Ambra 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), Rocket Yoga (300hrs), and Dharma Yoga (500hrs). Ambra’s teaching is fun and spontaneous following the lineage of Larry Shultz 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.
Aside from being a facilitator, and a practitioner, Ambra also holds a Masters in Philosophy in Sports Psychology. She is a trainee with the Yoga Sport Science, and loves spending time with her beloved Baxter, a four-paw standing Border Terrier frequently gracing her Instagram posts (@ambrasana).
