What is something that would surprise me about you?
I lived in Wales for almost 12 years, where I learned to spin wool on a spinning wheel and speak Welsh. So, now I’m a little bit Mississippi (where I grew up), a little bit Wales, and a little bit all over the world.

What can I expect from your class?
You can expect movements influenced by non-asana practices, woven together with conventional yoga asana, in a creative and flowing sequence where I’ll drop in some brain snacks* that you can take with you long after you roll up your yoga mat.

*Brain snacks: (n) philosophy, neuroscience, psychology, or–occasionally–really bad jokes.

What is the most essential part of practice for you?
To me, everything is an opportunity to learn. More specifically, it’s an opportunity to learn about yourself, how you react to each and every occurrence, so that you move from the passenger seat to the driver seat of your behaviours, emotions, and thoughts. This skill is what a mindful yoga practice hones. So to me, I don’t care if you’re doing one armed handstands or meditating in a cave — it’s what you learn from it, and how you apply it.

Adell Bridges is an international yoga teacher, health coach, and author who grew up in Mississippi, moved to the UK, and after a few years of wandering aimlessly through life, found yoga. She spent two years travelling as a nomad around the world teaching yoga, and continuing her training in various areas of mindfulness and movement. Adell is a self-proclaimed geek, and applies her degree in psychology with her training in the neurology of movement to her yoga and movement teachings. She now splits her time between London and Florida, and shares her love for the power of mindful movement to her online community on MoveWithAdell.com
