(SYT / BWY Teacher / Adv R&R® Restorative Yoga Trainer / iRest® Yoga Nidra Level 1)
Having studied various styles of yoga, Adelene’s practice in the recent decade has been greatly inspired by her teachers Judith Hanson Lasater (Senior Assistant to Judith H. Lasater) and Donna Farhi (Senior Associate to Donna Farhi). She also had the opportunity to work with world renowned experts Elise Miller and Marcia Monroe on the application of yoga for scoliosis.
Adelene integrates her experiences in her teachings, and is particularly interested in the therapeutic application of yoga. Using an alternative, non-invasive approach through this practice, many people with physical and emotional challenges have discovered a new-found freedom within themselves. Adelene's teaching focuses on anatomy, organic support and healthy alignment, with an emphasis on breath and spinal integration within the body, promoting a harmonious relationship with gravity.
She is absolutely committed to a balance of both active asana and restorative practices. Restorative yoga has been and still is a big part of her practice to restore and reset balance at every level. Adelene is glad that she started her journey and has more to learn each day. Yoga is a journey of continuous, liberating experiences. Yoga is for everyone, there is no destination but the present moment that one is experiencing. Yoga heals and nurtures the inner world of our hearts.
Adelene continues to study and assist her teachers with great respect and gratitude to their generosity and kindness, who has influenced in her practice, teaching and living yoga. This practice is a precious gift that she looks forward to sharing everyday for the rest of her life.
Adelene currently teaches classes, workshops, retreats and teacher training in London UK and internationally, and offers private sessions on Yoga for Scoliosis / Backcare, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Yoga Therapy.
