An artist and designer who initially came to the mat to relieve tension, Adam has personally experienced the miraculous range of therapeutic effects yoga offers, while also coming to understand his practice to be a vehicle through which he can inhabit the world more fully and express himself more deeply. Adam’s teaching comes directly from his daily experiences on his own yoga mat. He is grateful to be an avid student of Jim Bennitt and James Tennant and is strongly influenced by their approach to vinyasa krama (intelligent sequencing) and the application of Ayurvedic principles to the physical practice. He has also studied intensively with Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor. As a teacher Adam’s intention is for students to walk out the door with increased energy, focus, and inspiration for whatever challenges life might hold for them. In 2015 Adam released Wind Through Quiet Tensions, a book that chronicles his experiences with mental health and personal healing through yoga practice.
