What To Expect From Class
Adam’s yoga classes begin with challenging and intelligently sequenced asana (physical postures). He encourages practitioners to explore their physical boundaries and limitations while treating the body and mind with respect and compassion. Through precise and creative explanations of movements Adam seeks to inspire his classes to open up deeply to their present experience, trusting in the inherent power of self-observation and lucid awareness.
After working intently with the physical body Adam’s classes transition to more subtle practices that focus on harnessing the energetic potential of the breath. These techniques are called pranayama (literally translated from Sanskrit as “energy expansion”). Less obvious and less well-known in the West, pranayama is nonetheless a fundamental aspect of yoga practice and a powerful method of decreasing stress, increasing concentration, and expanding consciousness. Classes conclude with a few moments of complete stillness, providing the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of the practice and to develop the ability to concentrate deeply.
Ultimately Adam values self-guided practice above all else; through teaching group classes he intends to provide an effective framework for each individual to move through while offering the space and freedom for intuition and creativity.
