About Your Ropes and Chair Yoga Intensive Teachers:
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. Learn more about Adi HERE
Ainslie discovered yoga in 2005 in her high school library. She threw herself into the study of yoga at a local vinyasa studio and began working behind the desk shortly after. She fell in love with the challenging, graceful movements and has not taken a serious break ever since. In 2011 she completed her first 200-hour teacher training with Adi Amar and Angela Tong.
Since then she has been teaching yoga full time in Jackson Hole, completing an additional 300-hour training at Teton Yoga Shala and attending many workshops. She considers herself very lucky to have studied under Eddie Modestini, Barbara Benagh, Eddy Marks, Mary Obendorfer and most influentially Adi Amar.
Ainslie spent several years exclusively studying vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga but after a hip injury in 2013 she realized the capacity for the practice to truly heal the body in ways she couldn’t imagine. She began teaching more toward populations with injuries and chronic pain and feels so much more fulfilled in her day to day work teaching private students and supported group classes.
“Yoga Koranta (yoga ropes) helps in that way to understand the new horizons which open for the body as well as the mind.”
“Teton Yoga Shala was my school of choice because of the schedule and immersion style training they hold. I am beyond grateful that I chose this school. The quality of training, the focus on anatomy and proper form, the teacher to student ratio, and the serene mountain setting are among the multiple attributes that make this school top notch. I will continue to recommend Teton Yoga Shala to anyone and everyone looking to become a RYT.”
“What an amazing yoga school. I took a 200 hour YTT. All I can say is how grateful I am for Adi’s patience, knowledge and energy. All the teachers that we had in our program were outstanding. They are truly living their yoga.”
“Adi and Ainslie are diligent, patient, and effective. As a 50-year-old inflexible road warrior, I seemed to hurt myself too often. Trying to maintain Jackson-esque activity was a pain in the (lower) back. After two years of regular sessions in ‘Ropes and Chairs’ at the Teton Yoga Shala, I can ski, hike, bike, and even fly with more strength and comfort. Far fewer injuries and more confidence allow me to increase my weekly exercise and enjoy the mountains more often.”
