I have always relied on physical fitness to help me emotionally and physically. I was looking for a specific style of yoga that would best suit my mental, physical, and spiritual needs. Ironically, I couldn’t find a yoga studio in the Bay Area that I felt provided that on a deeper level – until I went to Adeline Yoga. Once I was in class, I immediately knew that this was where I was meant to be.

I keep coming back to Adeline Yoga because the teachers knowledge is so in-depth that it keeps me curious. I appreciate the discipline and accountability teachers hold for their students. The classes are well structured, rigorous, and calming every single time! I know I will always feel better after going to class. Yoga has made me a happier and healthier.

I was a long time practitioner and came to Adeline Yoga because I needed a more advanced, spiritual and energetic depth to my practice. I studied twice in India and I believe that unless the teacher has an anatomical, philosophical, and spiritual depth to their teaching, then they are not teaching yoga.

The teachers at Adeline are not only friendly, they care.  They notice each and every student’s pain or situation. I feel respected by the teachers. There is a level of trust I have with the teachers, students and studio.

I am aging, and I feel like my body is one I can count on because of yoga. My body feels empowered. Going through menopause, I think, what do people do without yoga?!

When I began at Adeline, I did a lot of running and wanted to see if I could lessen the pain in my lower back and extend my running career into my 60’s. I went to one class and was hooked!

I always feel so much better after I go to class. It eases the pain in my stiff joints – and I like the mental clarity and calmness I get.

For me, Adeline Yoga is a bit of a spiritual oasis. I love it when I can take some of that calmness into other areas of my life – like work. I also feel good about introducing my family to the practice. My brother and I are the two stiffest people in class, but we are getting more flexible and love yoga!
