A little bit about me
Adrienne dove headfirst into a daily yoga practice shortly after her son was born in 2006. She gained her RYT certification at Cityoga School of Yoga and Health in 2012 and has enjoyed teaching ever since. She extended her education under the loving guidance of Marsha Pappas in Yoga for Stress Management, Somatics, and Nidra acknowledging the powerful healing effects yoga has on the brain and how beneficial it is for the nervous system in reducing stress, relieving anxiety and depression, promoting better digestion and sleep, inspiring a more positive connection to the self and others.
In 2014, after sustaining injuries from a car accident which temporarily left Adrienne unable to practice as she was accustomed, she settled into a daily Yin practice. This pivotal point in Adrienne’s life forced her to look into the depths of slow, deliberate movement, meditation, and pranayama as healing sources. She fell in love with a more passive approach to the body, recognizing the lengthy benefits of a well balanced fitness regimen.
“Moving slowly on the mat is smart, strong. The body requires time to accept the suggestion of a shape & find alignment specific to your unique body. Giving yourself time in a pose or a transition not only allows you the space necessary to reestablish breath control, it enables you to strengthen what is needed and soften what is not, facilitating a full-spectrum connection to your practice and a deeper balance within.”
