Adelah's introduction to yoga was purely as a physical exercise that could help her recover from a knee injury. After years of egocentric asana-focused practice (that only led to further injury!) Adelah began to explore the other limbs of yoga and her practice evolved into considerate, loving and thoughtful movement guided by breath.
Adelah felt inspired to teach yoga to share it with others who didn't feel like they belonged in yoga studios and couldn't see how yoga might benefit their lives.
Adelah teaches a vinyasa flow style, with more emphasis on the flow and freedom of movement. You are given the space to listen to your body and learn how to move in response to it's needs.
