Studio Owner & E-RYT 500 Yoga Teacher
Adi Amar is the owner and director of the Teton Yoga Shala. She has been studying and practicing yoga since the age of 15 and completed her formal training in 2001 at Mount Madonna under the guidance of Baba Hari Das.
In 1998, Adi had the fortunate experience to practice with Tim Miller and was instantly drawn to the Ashtanga Yoga method at the age of 18. After years of dedicating herself to the Ashtanga practice Adi began exploring other methods that would assist in her 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 now incorporates a balanced approach between Vinyasa Yoga and detailed alignment. She integrates supported postures into her classes that build stamina and assist one in the internal experience of Yoga. 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.
Adi offers specific tools for each individual to extend his/her own growth and wisdom within challenging and inspiring classes that integrate the spiritual and philosophical teachings of Yoga. Adi believes that the practice is the teacher and aims to inspire a passion for looking within and sensitizing to what you are experiencing. 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, Wyo. and Sedona, Ariz. as backdrops, Yoga Today offers yoga classes on the Internet. Adi’s yoga classes give her viewers variety of challenging, healing and meditative sequences that they can follow once or many times online.
