THE INDABA SUMMER IMMERSION WITH AMBRA VALLO

Manifest a week of pure yoga magic all set in the beauty of Puglia, Southern Italy, enjoying ‘la dolce vita’!

This immersion is a light and fun way for students to gain a more in-depth knowledge of all aspects of yoga. Alongside a daily full asana practice, meditation and pranayama, you will learn the correct alignment of poses, focus on anatomy, learn yoga philosophy and explore aspects of yoga such as the energetic and subtle body.

Hosted by Indaba’s 200hr YTT lead teacher Ambra Vallo, her fun and spontaneous teaching follows the lineages of Dharma, Ashtanga, Forrest and Rocket yoga.

Our breathtaking location is the ‘Agricola Samadhi’, a last generation organic farmhouse located in southern Puglia complete with yoga shala, organic kitchen garden, spa and swimming pool just 20 minutes from the most beautiful beaches. There is also lots of activities such as horse riding, biking, trekking and sailing to try locally.

Freshly prepared brunches and dinners are served almost exclusively with seasonal ingredients from the organic garden or other local organic products. Each meal will be served on the sunny terrace overlooking the land where the organic fruit, vegetables and extra virgin olive oil are grown. The farm prides itself on serving fresh sattvic vegetarian and vegan dishes to help you feel light, balanced and energised during your holiday.

Lead Teacher Ambra Vallo

She 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.
