Registered Senior Teacher


Ambika is an Australian based senior yoga teacher and course presenter. She discovered yoga as a dancer and performer and trained in an ashram studying Yoga and Meditation. This classical approach gave her as much knowledge about Meditation, Mantra, Chanting and Philosophy, as it did Asana. Yoga became a way of life for Ambika, not a stretch/fitness class. 

She was  taught 5 simple points: 

  1. Proper Exercise (Asana) 
  2. Proper Breathing (Pranayama)
  3. Proper Diet (Vegetarian)
  4. Proper  Relaxation (Savasana)
  5. Proper and Positive Thinking (Meditation) 

Having lived with claustrophobia, Ambika understands the importance of connection with breath and clearing the mind, and yoga has given her the techniques to take control in situations where she may feel discomfort. She completely and wholeheartedly swears on yoga as a way to calm the mind, and wants to share this gift with others. She's also on a mission to help students understand the deeper intention of yoga. There's so much more to yoga than downward facing dog!

She writes and develops the courses for the Teacher Trainings at The Yoga Social and she spends her weekdays teaching yoga and meditation classes (large and privates) and her weekends training teachers (old and new).

She's also a crazy cat lady and lover of David Bowie :)

"Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success."

Swami Vivekananda

what people are saying about Ambika Chadwick

Adam Breman

Ambika is an amazing yoga communicator, approachable and experienced. "Beeks" as she is fondly known as, breaks down the teacher training course into manageable chunks and clearly describes many aspects of yoga. Compassion and understanding is so important in the yoga industry, this was clear to me from her teachings. Students felt they could ask many questions to Beeks. Thankyou Ambika for allowing us to practice yoga in a safe and playful environment yet challenging us to grow on our own journey.

Rebecca Rossi

Ambika is an inspiring and very knowledgeable teacher and yogi. She isn't just an instructor, she is a friend to all and those who get to study under her are incredibly fortunate."

Ellen Dixon

I have had the privilege of studying my 200hr YTT with Ambika at The Yoga Social for 6 months in 2016. I have got to know Ambika well over this time but it doesnt take more than 5min to know that she will welcome you with open arms, encourage you to explore, respect your experiences and opinions and somehow trick you in to thinking you can concur the world one shoulder stand at a time. Ambika will inspire you with her larger than life character at the same time as keeping you grounded with her down to earth attitude. I am incredibly honoured that I was given the opportunity to learn from someone with such tangible passion, such extensive experience and as much love to give as Ambika. Fingers crossed some of it rubbed off on me!

You know how people tell you something has literally changed their life and you nod and smile in a non-committal way because you really don't understand what they are talking about? Well, now I understand this sentiment after completing The Yoga Social Teacher Training.
