After studying various forms of bodywork, and graduating from Ohashiatsu school in NYC in 2010. The knowledge of Shiatsu with regard to Meridians & the Five elements was parallel to the aspects of Chakras, Nadis, and Five Elements as taught in Ayurveda & Yoga. Ambria learned to unite these practices in yoga classes by sequencing vinyasa classes with relation to the five elements, changing seasons, and times of day, and created class themes weaved with sequential postures, to help find balance and rejuvenate the body for practitioners.
A few years ago, while teaching yoga teacher training in Spain, she returned to Canada to help her Father with a miraculous recovery from a brain injury. She is currently sharing her love for yoga with a Neuro-Diverse group of people in Southern Ontario and working on recordings and writings for future release.
She is grateful and blessed for the guidance of incredible teachers: her parents, Sri Dharma Mittra, Tao Porchon Lynch, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, David Swenson, Master Ohashi, and the written teachings Patanjali, B.K.S. Iyengar, Swami Rudrananda, and Dr. Vasant Lad, all inspire her with their ongoing worldwide teaching opportunities.
