Adya’s graceful meditative style draws on a diverse range of influences and forms. She first trained as a teacher in the Vinyasa flow style at the White Lotus Foundation in California. Here she began a period of seven years of study and training while teaching at various yoga studios in California and Seattle.
While the flowing form of graceful Vinyasa is very present in her style, the soft restorative form of yin yoga brings a meditative aspect with gentle opening and melting into the asana. Here it is about surrender and breath, witnessing presence. While she has also trained extensively in pre-natal yoga, her most formative training took place at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Madras, India where she studied yoga therapy.
This work with Adya provides a sacred container to rest in presence and meet whatever arises, shedding layers of contraction and attachment, and embracing the simplicity of the moment. Witnessing presence unveils a natural movement towards wholeness, where thought, sensation and emotion are met equally in the field of awareness, and the awake presence beneath the movement of life shines with beauty.Source: pachamama.secure.retreat.guru
