I have found a place to study and grow and belong. Thank you for the sanctuary and for filling it with kindness and wisdom and terrific humans! – Alanna
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 that I felt provided that on a deeper level, that was until I went to Adeline Yoga. My roommate at the time explained what Iyengar Yoga was. Once I was in class, I immediately knew that this was where I was meant to be.
I keep coming back to Adeline 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.
I teach art and textiles for a living. Yoga has made me a happier and healthier teacher. My friends and family know my strong commitment to yoga and that the studio is extremely important to me. We somehow almost always work around my Adeline schedule and make time for each other. My dedication to practice yoga has inspired others to commit to what their heart desires, which makes both of us happy in the end.
I was a long time practitioner and came to Adeline 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 thought yoga could help me. I was looking for an Iyengar yoga studio because I was familiar with that type of yoga having taken a class many years ago. I was lucky to stumble on to Adeline. I went to one class and was hooked!
I always feel so much better after I go to class!! In addition to easing the pain in my stiff joints, I like the mental clarity and calmness I get from the practice.
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 bringing members of my family into the yoga studio and introducing them to yoga. My brother and I are the two stiffest people in class, but we are getting more flexible and love yoga!
Affordable, unpretentious Iyengar. Great community. Good vibe in the studio. Knowledgeable teachers. Awesome. – Annie S.
