Think of this video blog as a mini-trip to satisfy your wanderlust for adventure and experimenting with new strange/exotic foods. Or perhaps it might instead strike you as more of a crash course in yoga, healing and self-love meditation. Either way, you will undoubtedly enjoy this kindness video diary concentration!

Each week video blog  Adam Quang will challenge him self to use yoga ancient art (originally designed for bodies that squatted and sat on cushions from 3300 BC – 1700 BC) by redesigning it to adapt to our chair-sitting/ high-heel wearing industrialized lifestyles of today, by deconstructing the mystique of the yoga pose and presenting it in simple movements and terminology.

The  goal is to make it accessible to everyone, including people with limited mobility (i.e. problems that are caused by sitting at the computer) and therefore, exercises are structured to reduce pain and discomfort, while focusing on prevention and healing.

“Adam’s Tai chi class is very valuable to us and has become a major motivation in continuing on at Wynn. Adam is a gifted teacher and I am eager to continue learning from him. We each are letting our friends know about this class in hopes of building up the numbers.” Marilyn Kado

I attended Adam’s Meditation & Neck and Shoulder Care class a couple of weeks ago and must say that it was a delightful experience. Adam takes the time to address each student’s concerns and creates a wonderful & soothing atmosphere. The small class sizes make for an intimate experience that one may not get in a large studio. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in meditation, especially those just starting to incorporate it into their lives.

Thanks again Adam 🙂

“Thank you for keeping me mobile.  I was at the doctor for a check-up on my 4 year old hip replacement. As I was waiting for the doctor to come back, I heard my physiotherapist said to my doctor as he pointed to me, ‘Ya, she’s the only one who got 5/5 of flexibility. No one ever got more than 4/5.’  I was very pleased and thanks to you (Adam). Because of your Gentle Chair Yoga, I was able to move and bend this and that way.” 70s Katri W. Jan 21, 2014

“I sleep so well and with out interruption every time after Back Care, thank you. I alway have problem sleeping and smallest noise would woke me up, but never after your class.” Silvia Medrano

“I’ve been going to Adam’s classes for a month now and I’m always impressed by his ability to easily guide a multi-level class, while encouraging everyone to find their own ‘edge’. Can’t wait for next week!” Janine Martins

“what an AWESOME way to start the week! Thanks so much Adam. This was my first class, and I definitely would recommend this class to anyone- even those who are little shy to try! Adam encourages you to listen to your body, and teaches variations to the positions allowing you to maximize your experience. See you next Monday (after Easter!) and I’ll prob have a couple friends in tow too! Can’t wait!” Amandine

“This class was fantastic; I would recommend it to all yogis. Adam’s mindfullness approach is helpful in getting the most out of a yoga class. Thank you Adam!” Brynn

“Thanks for tailoring the session to my sore parts! The way you explain and demonstrate is so clear and detailed and I felt so much better after the class.”  Julie

“It was my first class last Monday, and it was awesome! Simultaneously relaxing and energizing. Thanks Adam “ Monica

“Adam leads a challenging and rejuvenating class, but one for all levels. At the beginning he asks if anyone has anything s/he would like to focus on. He wants to know if one has any particular injuries. During the class he gives individual attention, gently and quietly adjusting postures and encouraging everyone to push themselves, but only as far as they are able. Today was a beautiful day in Riverdale Park and lying under the old trees on the lush green grass took me back to my childhood. Thank you for this experience, Adam!” — Jessica on Jul 4, 2013.

 

Comment from a yoga teacher I’ve train

Hi Adam
I have taken so many yoga classes! I continue to be grateful for my training with you! I learned some really important lessons that are helping me now! I see lots of (young) yoga teachers and often they seem oblivious of these lessons. Here are a few:

  • park your ego at the door.
  • use a friendly voice that is well modulated
  • begin by finding a quiet moment of your own before you begin to teach
  • use music if it is helpful – otherwise stay quiet
  • demonstrate the simplest easiest version of a shape first- advanced students will find their own way to a harder version
  • teach the students in front of you – be ready to change things up harder or easier depending on the class of students
  • dont try to teach too much in one lesson – less can be more
  • tell students why they are doing a posture
  • tell students how to get INTO AND OUT of the posture – dont just say, “come into triangle” and expect they know how!
  • Remember that not everyone will like what or how you teach but be true to yourself

should I keep going???
I just wanted to say how grateful I am!

“It was excellent – I miss Adam’s Yoga classes. Highly recommended!” Rodney Ronquillo

“Thanks for another awesome class Adam!” suzanne

“Thank you Adam, great class!”  Norberto

“I felt great after the yoga. I have been having trouble sleeping and your session plus meditation helped! Great job!” Flavian DeLima

“Thank you for a great and supportive class!” Anna V

“Wow. I experienced my first couple yoga and I can say that I’m closer to my partner than ever. Lol ok it takes more sessions to rip the benefits but nonetheless it was a new experience and it pushed me harder than doing yoga on my own. I highly recommend this to all couple. Would any couples want to try this together? We have convinced our yoga instructor (by far he’s the best yoga instructor we have had and queer friendly) to offer 10 sessions to 2-3 couples. It will be intimate and it is not very expensive per person ” Jen A.
