We will explore the effects of posture, thought, breath and meditation on our physiology which leads to an integration and harmonization of our psychology. Discover wholeness through pranayama, meditation, asana and structural integration. Through exploration of science and traditional wisdom you will gain a clear understanding of the best practices to balance, align and integrate all layers of your being.

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.

Audrey is also a dedicated yoga practitioner rooted in the Ashtanga tradition and currently studying in the Iyengar tradition. She has also studied Nutritional Therapy. Audrey believes that health is inherent to the human body. She also believes that knowledge is power, when coupled with curiosity and humility. She herself is a perpetual student. This passion for learning gives her the opportunity to absorb knowledge, and create a thriving healthcare practice founded upon a balance of science and traditional wisdom. Through exploration of anatomy and physiology, and experiential learning, each of us is empowered to know ourselves in our multidimensional existence. Audrey‘s family has had a residence in Jackson Hole since the 1940s, and she has been a full-time resident in Wilson since 2001. She holds a deep love for nature and wild places.
