Delve under the skin of this non-dogmatic, anatomy loving teacher, into a world of ultramarthons, legal training, boxing rings and international yoga teaching....
Actions speak louder than words, and Adam Husler (E-500RYT) uses both to understand universal balance in the practice of yoga. Drawing experience from a variety of lives lived off the mat— be it the law school, the boxing ring, the ultramarathon path or the non-profit sector— he brings a unique perspective to those who seek more from yoga than making pretty shapes. He offers creative, effective and clearly-sequenced teachings that focus on balancing flexibility and strength; physically and mentally.
Inspired by a fascination with anatomy, Adam specialises in Alignment-Based Vinyasa Yoga, informed by years of study and with Jason Crandell, and assisting him on a number of advanced teacher trainings. Being further influenced by; the spiritual wisdom of renowned meditation teacher Michael Stone, the dynamic teachings of Cameron Shayne and the anatomical knowledge of Tom Myers, Adam consistently refines his teaching method both as instructor and student.
Adam believes that yoga is a personally subjective practice of self enquiry, where only one thing is for certain: whether a long-time listener, first time caller, or anywhere in between... yoga offers us all plenty of options to challenge and reward. Start small, go slow, practise, and all is coming.
Based in London, Adam teaches a robust schedule in one of the worlds top yoga studios, Triyoga, and renown gym, Equinox. On top of this, Adam leads workshops, trainings and teaches festivals continuously around the world, leaving him with thousands of teaching hours under his belt and plenty of appearances in national and international media.
Adam's Yoga Teaching
Adam specialises in a signature style of Alignment-Based Vinyasa— fuelled by a fascination with anatomy and a desire to ask ‘why?’. Classes are less focused on dramatic postures as an end in themselves, but on becoming more engaged, attentive, integrated and focused in asanas, as we explore our breath, mind and body at our individual threshold.
Each month, Adam’s public classes have a different theme and each week a difference sequence, all featuring; long holds, controlled yet dynamic movements, intelligent alignment, anatomical precision, non-absolutism and a focus on integrity, over depth, in postures. They’re also dogma free!
Adam seeks to remind all that an asana practice is a very subjective experience, and whether you are a yoga teacher or new to the practice, there’ll be plenty of options to challenge all in their journey of self enquiry.
Raised in Birmingham, Adam found his way north to the chilly hills of Durham to continue a path to a lucrative legal career, but legal books soon got put aside and Adam began to work with underprivileged teens, in various Northern schools and young offenders institutions; occasionally in other countries like Nepal and Hounduras too. After a brief post-universty sabbatical, running a bar and walking the width of Spain, Adam turned working with young people in to a career, with highlights including :
Managing 2 brand new youth-hubs and event spaces in Central London, including theatre, recording studios, commercial catering business, event space, gym, dance studios and more.
Setting up and delivering programmes for hundreds of young people as part of the National Citizen Service, with The Challenge
Specialising in Youth Leadership and Life Coaching for 13-25 year olds with Changemakers, with clients including Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital
