Our Yogi Instructors
Adam spent much of his youth battling severe sporting injuries including operations to his ankles, knees and hip. Despite these setbacks, it was only when he dislocated both shoulders at the age of 24 that he decided enough was enough. He felt the immediate benefits of the yoga in his injury riddled body and for the first time in years he was pain free. It is because of these results that he now spends his days motivating and teaching students to overcome their own challenges. Adam’s classes are strongly rooted in physical awareness, as he believes we must heal the body first and then anything is possible!

“For me, yoga and music are a way of getting out of my head and into my heart. I fell in love with yoga initially just for the feeling it created in my body, I feel strong and powerful on the mat but the deeper connection to myself and the world around me is what keeps me coming back over and over again. Music moves me, the right song can immediately uplift and connect me and flowing yoga poses alongside uplifting beats is an experience that I can’t explain in words. It’s like every cell in your body vibrating at a higher frequency in perfect harmony.”
