Adarsh Williams teaches a contemplative style of yoga that embraces both modern innovation and traditional wisdom. Since 1995, Adarsh has been engaged in the field of natural healing and has received certifications in therapeutic massage and active isolated stretching. He continues as a student of Ashtanga Yoga and its sister studies of Sanskrit, Ayurveda, and Bhakti.

As an Authorized Ashtanga teacher, Adarsh has continuously traveled to Asia since 2001 for study and pilgrimage. Adarsh strives to pass on the precise method of Ashtanga as taught to him by his late Guruji, Shri. K Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. Believing that the best teacher is one who inspires students to "practice, practice, practice", his approach is individualized, compassionate, and respectful, allowing each practitioner to receive the appropriate attention without any one person getting lost in the crowd of students. He maintains the exact method of counting vinyasa, dristhi, pranayama, asana, and bandha which form the core techniques of Ashtanga.

Through in-depth study of human anatomy and physiology and formal training as a massage therapist, Adarsh is highly regarded for his sensitive yet deep adjusting style. He has experience working with a wide variety of students of diverse abilities, ages, and backgrounds. With a deeply held belief that anyone can develop a personal yoga practice, Adarsh is an energetic teacher who infuses his enthusiasm for practice and hard work in his students.

Prior to coming to Taiwan, Adarsh directed the Ashtanga Yoga Shala in Palo Alto, CA specializing in progressive instruction for beginner through advanced levels.

Ashtanga Yoga

Primary Series - The Full Vinyasa

You are invited to experience Ashtanga like never before!

What is “full vinyasa”?
You could think of this as one long Sun Salutation …

For each asana of the Primary Series, you begin in Samasthiti (mountain pose) and finish in Samasthiti. This means that you will be doing sun salutations continuously – always returning to the mountain pose, while going deeper into the 50 asanas than ever before!

It is not as hard as it sounds! In addition to the enhanced physical practice, full vinyasa develops a deep meditative flow. Along the way, you will pick up valuable tricks for tricky poses, lock down your jump-throughs and transitions, and correct your weak links, all while mastering your Ashtanga game.
