“People have an idea of the body and they seek to improve it, care for it through diet, exercise, good relationships and fulfilling work but they do not always think of the body as the source of our psychology, of our thinking, feeling, and the orientation of our values. The bodied life is bigger than health or exercise, it’s how we are alive and how we manage that life, how we form our values and make meaningful choices. The body is the source and an orientatio for what an embodied life is like. Philosopher, dancer, painter, psychologist, body worker, it’s all about how voluntary acts can influence their life and their way of experiencing themselves and the world.” Stanley Keleman
Adam has been teaching massage courses and anatomy for yoga teacher trainees for six years around the world and has been practicing massage himself for over twelve. His original studies were in Ayurvedic Yoga Massage and Thai Massage, but his approach has been revolutionized by working with Anatomy Trains’ teacher James Earls. From working with Anatomy Trains, osteopaths, yoga teachers and breathwork practitioners he has developed a deep understanding of the mechanics of the body and sees subtle awareness as the key to transformation. He specializes in body reading, therapeutic bodywork and myofascial release. Structural Awareness Technique is the culmination of years of study and enthusiasm. He has lived in India for over ten years.
"I want everyone to develop a new understanding of their bodies - our body sculpts itself around its most common activities and its most frequent emotions. Through breath, movement, yoga and bodywork we can improve not only our posture but our integrity and our emotional well-being."
Adam is a member of the Complimentary Therapists Association.

"Yoga like anything can end up aroutine – simply going through the motions on your mat. Yet every time we roll out our mat it is an opportunity to learn something new about ourselves, to wake up to subtleties in body, breah and mind. When we bring awareness and a meditative attitude to our practice, the potential of our practice exceeds all possibilities. Yoga is a polishing of the mirror offering us insight into every muscle, every cell, every thought and every inspiration."
