She strongly believes in the power of yoga and says that if yoga and meditation were taught to all children then we would change the world in one generation!
Yoga has been around for more than 5,000 years and comprises three basic elements – movement (posture), breath and meditation.
The word yoga means union in the ancient language of Sanskrit.
Its purpose is to unite the mind, body and spirit into one functional and harmonious experience.
Time spent on your yoga mat is a time to reconnect to your inner self. It is a time to stop and be in the present moment and still (even if in movement).
Today, we live hectic lifestyles and we exist by ‘doing’ rather than ‘being’.
We are constantly looking outside in the external world, for joy, peace, love and acceptance. When we commit to a yoga practice, we start to find that all the things we desire exist inside us.
It may sound like a cliché, but this is a common feeling experienced by students who come to class, time after time. When you practice yoga regularly, it affects you more than physically. It is the one exercise that affects not only every single physical system in the body but it affects the way that you relate to yourself emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Yoga postures (asanas) allow us to stretch, improve our flexibility and balance and enable us to be aware of our bodies. We use the breath (pranayama) to help us focus and calm our mind. As a result, health is improved, energy returns and stillness is restored to our minds. There a many different types of yoga and schools of teaching and belief but generally most of what is taught in the West is hatha yoga. Adele has learnt a variety of styles, which she incorporates into her fun, relaxed sessions.
Whether you are new to yoga, or have been practising it for years, Adele delivers a class that will suit you. She stresses that yoga is not a competition, so she encourages people to work at their own pace.
She also teaches intensive workshops at a range of locations and runs amazing, restorative retreats to the beautiful British countryside, where you can experience the true bliss of yoga.
