Adam is a yoga teacher and practitioner living in Los Angeles, CA, who brings hatha vinyasa yoga together with the joy and devotion of bhakti yoga. He leads a heart centered yoga practice, mantra meditation classes, and kirtan. He began his yoga journey with Yogamaya New York and is heavily inspired by the teachers at the Bhakti Center NY – Rhadanath Swami and Kaustubah Das. He has also studied with and sat in kirtan with Bhagavan Das, Jai Uttal, and Govindas. For the last 9 years he has taught yoga and led kirtan full time in Los Angeles while hosting local and international retreats. When he isn’t teaching, you can find Adam in the kitchen or catering an event with his company Common Good Hospitality, or hiking SoCal with his husband Blake and dog Frances.
Spirit & Form Yoga:
“There are many paths up the mountain but they all lead to the same peak.”
In this class, Spirit & Form, many lineages of yoga are incorporated into one practice. Even though there are many paths within the yoga tradition, they all lead to the Self. The rythmic chanting or kirtan of bhakti yoga is seamlessly infused with hatha yoga and kriyas. The combination of these practices is an element for true inner expansion. If you’ve been practicing physical yoga and you feel you’ve plateaued or your practice feels flat, it’s not that it isn’t working anymore, it’s a sign you are ready to move towards these more subtle practices. At Spirit & Form we use asana or postures as a stepping stone into the higher limbs of yoga to experience life on a deeper and more connected level. It’s through this deep inner connection, a direct result of the purification of body and mind, that we also start to create the transformation of the outer world we all seek. Use the synergy of bhakti, hatha, vinyasa, and kriya yoga to accelerate your practice into deeper and more expansive ways of being and living.
