A woman’s circle to explore what beeing a woman means today by sharing. Looking at what femininity is its role in our every day living and self-realization. Making time to define priorities in personal and business life. Holding space for one another.

We will be sharing our own experiences as well as learning about different grounding practices and ways to bring passion and focus into our lives.
A mother and a yogini, Ambika is constantly finding balance between a natural calling for self expression in the world and the pleasure of being a full time mom and wife. She is currently exploring ways to simplify her life, to create a life where she is able to give more and to nourish herself and others with greater energy.
Originally from Latvia, Ambika’s yoga journey started at age nine, when she traveled to India and lived with her parents at an ashram in the Himalayas, for a year and a half. She was introduced to the Indian culture and the seeds were planted for her future yoga practice. After practicing hatha yoga for over ten years, and after living and working in New York, in 2011 Ambika received her yoga teacher training and certificate at Ananda Ashram in Monroe, New York. Since then she has been sharing the healing power of yoga through her hatha vinyasa yoga classes, which include pranayama, Sanskrit chanting, yoga philosophy and elements of yoga nidra and meditation.
A few years ago, while pregnant with her daughter, she felt naturally drawn to teach prenatal yoga. She took Ma Yoga Prenatal Teacher Training in NYC, as well as an apprenticeship program with Mia Borgata. With the understanding that birth is a uniquely individual experience, in her prenatal classes Ambika creates a balance between building strength and relaxation.
