To whom it may concern:

I have been a member of the Y since 2004 and have been attending Adam Quang’s classes since February 2008. I have the utmost respect for his knowledge and talent.

Since 2004, I have had at least 4 other pilates/yoga teachers in the past, all very good and each with their own way of teaching pilates/yoga. Adam is my favourite.

His manner is very cheerful and courteous. His approach is very friendly, but respectful.

At the beginning of each class, he always begins by telling us to listen to our bodies first and not to him. Not once have I ever heard another instructor say this. Also, during the class, he goes around checking and encouraging. Then he goes back to the front as we rest between exercises, to show us what we’ve done wrong. He’s very thorough and he’s very careful with us.

All of his exercises seem very simple and basic but are in fact, unbelievably difficult and challenging. Each exercise comes with at least 5 levels of difficulty. Over the last year or so, attending only 2 classes per week, when I can get there, I have improved my strength and flexibility incredibly. And quite surprisingly. You don’t even feel yourself working out. That’s my favourite part.

I get bored with repetition very easily if there is no challenge involved. If this happens in a class, I usually stop attending the classes. This happened in 2007 with one teacher before Adam arrived. I can also get frustrated when the teacher consistently laughs and talks throughout the class and seems unprepared. The result is a very disjointed 1 hour full of exercises that take you from sitting, to standing, to sitting, to lying, to standing, and everywhere else. I also stopped coming to these classes.

Adam’s class lets you feel calm, at peace and eager to be there.

To whom it may concern:

This is a letter of recommendation in support of Adam Quang as a yoga/pilates instructor.

Adam consistently arrives on time and is completely prepared for each session. His classes run smoothly with a great deal of focus and patience, which demonstrates a clear reflection of his experience as an instructor. Adam’s enjoyment of the practice of yoga / pilates is very apparent in his instruction, in which he incorporates much insight regarding the spiritual and physical benefits of the practice of yoga/ pilates.

He integrated a great deal of variety from class to class and provides careful instructions and modifications on continual refinement of the foundations of yoga/ pilates on which we are building. A particularly impressive quality of Adam’s instruction is the individual attention and support he gives to each of his students. Adam’s teaching methods are invaluable and he has helped me de-stress in a highly stressful and completive environment.

It is with great pleasure that I highly recommend Adam Quang as a member of the International Yoga Teacher Organization.

To Whom It May Concern,

I have been taking Pilates-yoga instruction with Adam Quang once or twice a week since March 2008, and can say with great confidence that he is a master teacher. I am an actor and have trained extensively in modern dance, ballet, yoga, and pilates, and he is the best teacher I have ever worked with. His classes strike a remarkable balance between relaxation and physical challenge.

By stressing correct alignment and technique, he helps his students maximize the benefits of the exercises. For me, the result has been increased strength, flexibility, and body awareness. I have been dancing very intensely this summer, without injury, and know that this is, in part, due to Adam’s classes. I leave each class physically and mentally centered, with my muscles stretched and fatigued, but never strained.

Sincerely, K. M.



Adam demonstrated a solid understanding of techniques, knowledge and instruction.

He was clear with both his verbal instructions and demonstration skills.

He observed each student and provided appropriate corrections as needed. Adam had a comfortable manner of interaction with students and provided for the safety of new students to the class.

The present is a reference letter for Mr. Adam QuangI have taken yoga classes with Mr.Quang for almost 2 years and have learned much of the yoga technique with him. Mr.Quang is an excellent teacher (14 years of experience). What we all appreciated in his classes is the professionalism and knowledge he transmitted to all of us. He is also outstanding in meditation. For all these reasons, we are very sorry to see him leave.

Monique R. Montréal (Québec)



Dear Mr. Adam,

Teaching is not a simple job but a vocation : either you have it, or you don’t! And, you sure do have it: the gift of passing on to the others what you know, patience, kindness, softness in your voice, reassuring smile, true sincerity….

After each yoga session with you as a teacher, truly felt much better then before, in my body and in my soul. If under any stress prior to Monday 11:30am, a few moments only into the practice, it was thing of the past. And I know that I was not the only one feeling this way about you for you are the only one that the “students” applauded.

I am sure that one day I will hear about you as a great yoga master and I will feel even prouder that some day, somewhere in this existence, the lines of our lives met.

Hoping that life will be as kind to you as you are to those around you.


mille mercies pour tout et bonne chance! Cam on! Tot su may rui! Hen sui! Cuc Tot chù (or thay giáo) (excellent master)

Ps: excusez mon anglais m?diocre mais je ne l’ai jamais ?tudi?. I am a self taught.
