Fabio Pinna

Fabio started practicing cyr wheel as a circus artist in 2008, at a time where there were no teachers of this discipline, and technique was an exciting journey of self teaching, trial and error, injuries
and frustration.

 

Due to the very high demand for this innovative discipline he started teaching in 2011, and quickly discovered that his students wouldn't have had to deal with all the same troubles he did. He since developed a teaching method rooted in movement science, analytical thinking, and neuroscience, approaching the cyr wheel purely as a balancing apparatus (as opposed to an acrobatic one), to
speed up learning times and reduce injury rate as much as possible.

 

Since 2012 he teaches workshops and classes around Europe with his project Cyrtraining (www.cyrtraining.com). Before circus he was a breakdancer, a gymnast, a traceur (a practitioner of parkour), a practitioner of eastern martial arts, and generally an all around movement nerd.

Emiliano Ron has devoted many years  various aerial techniques, choosing to specialize on rope.  With an academic background in Cinematography Arts (Editor and Director of Photography) and spending his adolescence mixing his passion for martial arts, punk rock, books and skateboarding, he decided to leave everything and become a circus artist.  Learning with great teachers and training alongside others he has become a living legend on the rope.  Currently he divides his profession as an artist and teacher; creating new movements and developing a particular eccentric and unique style.  A freak on the rope. Raw, wild, brutal and different

Act Creation

Ambra Vallo

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), Forrest Yoga (200hrs), Tripsichore (200hrs), and Dharma Yoga (800hrs). 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.

 

Aside from being a facilitator, and a practitioner, Ambra also hold 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 fore-paw standing Border Terrier frequently gracing her Instagram posts (@ambrasana).
