Adarsh Williams

Smart Yoga - Adding Intelligence to Your Practice
with Adarsh Williams

4-day Intensive: 2012/11/8 – 11/11

Smart Yoga is not a style of yoga; it is a way of adding intelligence to your yoga. One of the biggest challenges facing yoga students is how to practically apply the techniques talked about in a typical yoga class. This Immersion will focus on making a clear connection between yoga and practical anatomy.

Although the goal of yoga is a mental state of balance, it is clear that we use the vehicle of body and breath to arrive. Therefore it is helpful for those practitioners to have a good foundation in practical anatomy so they may use the body in a way that is most efficient. When the body moves well, the breath naturally deepens and the mind becomes clear.

This course is open to all levels. Experienced beginners will enjoy a safe and detailed introduction to the practice, while intermediate to advanced students will benefit from expert instruction and hands on adjustment.

Each day will consist of two yoga practices - the morning session will start with prelude practices including kriya (cleansing) and pranayama, and follow by a vigorous vinyasa yoga practice. The afternoon session will consist of exercises based on yoga, Pilates, and AIS to bring the anatomy to life.

Daily Schedule:

Morning Session
8am - 9amPrelude practices - kriya, pranayama, mantra, sitting meditation
9am - 11amAsana class - alignment focused vinyasa practice
Afternoon Session
1pm - 2pmChanting & Yoga Philosophy
2pm - 4pmAsana Refinement class: using yoga anatomy to clearly understand how yoga works; the science of flexibility, strength, & balance; and how to go deeper. 

About Adarsh

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.
