Studio Owner & E-RYT 500 Yoga Teacher
Adi Amar was introduced to yoga in 1994 and has been studying and practicing yoga sincerely since the age of 15. She completed her first formal training in 2001 at Mount Madonna under the guidance of Baba Hari Das.
Adi was hooked by the practice of Yoga as a mental, emotional, and physical healing system. In 1998, Adi had the fortunate experience to practice with Tim Miller and was instantly drawn to the Ashtanga Yoga method. After years of dedicating herself to the Ashtanga practice she began exploring other methods that would assist her in healing a major knee injury from skiing.
She started studying Iyengar Yoga and integrated a slower approach to her practice and teaching. As a result, Adi weaves detailed alignment within Vinyasa style yoga classes. Adi believes that consistent practice with open awareness is the window into reorganizing old mental patterns and tendencies that have been knowingly or unknowingly ingrained into how we operate and experience life. Through utilizing technologies for well being, Adi strives to inspire a passion for regular practice and taking responsibility for one’s own experience of living life to the fullest. Adi offers methods for individuals to extend his/her own growth and wisdom within inspiring classes that integrate the spiritual and philosophical teachings of Yoga.
Adi dedicates her daily sadhana to pranayama and meditation under the guidance of Sadhguru. She considers Baba Hari Dass, Sadhguru, Tim Miller, Bhavani Maki, Nicki Doane, Eddie Modestini, Mary Obendorfer and Eddy Marks as some of her most influential teachers. She has studied extensively within the broad scope of Hatha Yoga. She currently teaches Vinyasa and therapeutic group classes, private and semi-private classes that focus on individuals needs, workshops and yoga teacher trainings.
Adi Amar also teaches yoga online at Yoga Today. With beautiful places like Jackson Hole, WY and Sedona, AZ as backdrops, Yoga Today offers a large library of yoga classes on the Internet. Adi’s yoga classes give her viewers a variety of challenging, healing and meditative sequences that they can follow consistently.
