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.
MJ started practicing yoga at a young age and began her formal studies while in college. She always knew she wanted to share her passion and the impact it had made on her life. She attributes yoga to saving her life in her teenage years when suffering from an eating disorder and a broken back. She went off to college and took time to travel, connect, and create. In 2017, after opening her eyes to the possibilities of our world, she graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor’s degree in Photography and Foreign Language. Her education continued when given the opportunity to intern as a trauma-informed yoga instructor at the Children’s Law Center in Denver. That internship has played a pivotal role to reaffirming the power of yoga and why she not only wanted to, but needed to, share it with the world. She moved to Jackson in 2017 and has since worked in social services and have been instructing to a variety of people (all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, languages, social status, age, etc).
Yoga is for everyone and MJ strives to be able to share it with you no matter if it’s your first or millionth time on your mat. She offers both public yoga classes as well as private instruction. Every time you come to your mat you’re invited to move away from the casual and the habitual and towards the intentional and self-aware. This is where the magic exists, in present awareness and outside of comfort zones. Let’s create magic together!
