Adam has been practicing Ashtanga yoga since 1998 and teaching since 2004. He is one of few practitioners to have completed the Advanced A (third) series in Mysore, India, under the guidance of Sharathji Jois. In 2012 Adam received level 2 authorisation to teach the intermediate series.
He has taught and lived primarily in London, with short stints in Vancouver, Spain, Crete and India, as well as teaching workshops internationally.
Adam’s teaching is committed to the facilitating the individuals experience of yoga. Teaching is approached with a lightness of touch and an open mind.
Outside the sphere of yoga, Adam is a continuous student of philosophy as well as having worked previously to teach as vegetarian chef. He now runs (and teaches on) Keen on Yoga an online workshop and classes platform he started with his wife Theresa.
You know the expression ‘behind every good man…’ well, Theresa has been the solid foundation behind the development of my teaching. She has supported me getting up at crazy times, and dedicating hours every day to self-exploration; as well as being the driving force behind my first visiting Mysore, that earned our respective accreditations there.
She is herself an inspiration in her integrity and commitment to the practice of yoga, never wishing to teach (though qualified to do so), she has kept up her daily practice for the past 15 years, choosing instead to bring yoga into many lives by tirelessly developing and running a number of yoga-centres; the foremost being Purple Valley In Goa, India, where we met when she employed me as a chef.
Her unwavering commitment and belief to the yoga-lifestyle of integrity and dedication have been a great strength and source of inspiration to me over the years since we met. It is a testament to the quality of this that she has had such a positive outlook throughout her journey with breast cancer, and created meaning out of this time to again share yoga all we do together.
