“It’s traditional” - but when we think about asana, what is ‘tradition’? A transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation? How many generations does it take for something to become tradition? A lot of the asana we practice are just a few generations old, if that; many perhaps inspired by Indian wrestling and western gymnastics. .

I never do big, leveraged, strong adjustments to students in class. I like to leave that to the physios, the osteopaths, the massage therapists and alike. They’ve had years of training in how to do this safely. Though, I’m sure that even they would refuse to do a strong adjustments to a room full of 40 people, with unique/individual bodies who’ve they’ve not individually done a consultation with! The husky can take it though. . Side note, this is the new organge ‘happiness’ @liforme - 10% off this mat and all others with code ADAMHUSLER19 - you financially benefit and I do too 😜

I’ve launched totally free classes on @youtube and when filming the latest, I had fighters in mind. I actually studied karate from 8-18 and then was a boxer from 18-28, having plenty of bouts in the dojo and boxing ring on the way! In the class we target the habitually tight bits that fighters experience, particularly around the shoulders, chest and upper back.....I guess the class is probably good for all people living in the smartphone era too! So everyone should practice this 20min class! Temporary link in bio leading you straight to it! Enjoy. . . Code ADAMHUSLER19 for @liforme mat discount (I get financial kick back if you use that)

After one of my classes yesterday, a student said they really appreciated that I was ‘there with the students the whole time’ - a way of thinking about something I’d never considered; but I like! - She was referencing the fact that during class I’m constantly walking around, trying to see what everyone is doing at every moment and giving verbal instructions based on what I’m seeing. This is one of the many reasons I never bother laying a mat out when I teach. One day I should use my @apple watch to count the distance I walk in a typical class! - See you tomorrow for workshops Zürich, Switzerland

What’s desire.... maybe it’s just a contract with yourself, promising that you’ll be unhappy until you get the thing you’ve decided you want. I’ve noticed in well over a decade of practice that desires have decreased and I’ve put energy in to appreciating, or maybe ‘desiring’, the things I already have.

Our society is suffering from attention deficit. Let’s read books instead of quotes. Let’s listen to talks instead of sound bites. Let’s treat our yoga practice as a lifelong learning rather than ‘6 weeks to handstands’. Let’s read researched articles rather than social media click-bait. Let’s stop sometimes and just be with ourselves. . This weekend Friday night workshops @triyogauk Chelsea, London and Sunday workshops at @popupyoga_ch Zurich

After breaking my foot and rupturing a few ligaments in it, just over 2 years ago, I’ve been increasingly interested in rebuilding strength and mobility in my foot, along with stability and a little more rigidity in my legs. I’ve hearing about them for a long time, along with passionate review from my PT @ray_buckton , and then @vivobarefoot happened to get in touch and invited me to give their shoes a go. So so interesting to see how my body is reacting to walking the streets in a more natural way...

Chances are nothing you ever buy will make you feel more whole. The ‘happiness’ that is talked about on social media, the brand ‘happiness’, is not really happiness at all. Often the lives we end up living are maintained largely by the feeling that we are incomplete. In dissatisfaction of who we are, we buy new things, to impress exciting new people, to become an exciting new person ourselves. Then we wonder why there is still craving. We wonder if this is actually what we wanted. Start to take some deep breaths. Hold and observe your thoughts and your feelings. Become aware of each moment and appreciate the things you have. Witness nature; really see it. Be here and let stuff be. . 📷 @yogaandphoto with words inspiring after listening to the wonderful Kate Tempest

Of course, I want my teachers to be educated, experienced, knowledgable and capable, but all of that is useless if they are not able to teach the content in an engaging, articulate way that students are able to understand. This skill doesn’t necessarily come with more and more hours of education, but with; more practice teaching, more development of teaching skill and more time working with the subject matter. . Hugely appreciate my teachers ability to teach, whether I’ve spent years with them, hours with them, or just read their books; @jason_crandell, @michaelstoneteaching , Senca, @kristincampbellyoga , Albert Camus, @anniecarpentersmartflow , Richard Rosen, Christopher Hitchens, @julesyoga , @davestringer @emmajiva , Gibran, @cameronshayne and so many more. . ...... meanwhile, my focus is clearly on encouraging my groin area to glow.... . 14th July I have workshops in Zurich, Switzerland, 12th July in London, England and 21st July Paris, France .

Sometimes a teacher might get caught in the trap of thinking they need to constantly entertain their students, creating a new sequence in every class, squeezing in every pose they can. A question though; over the last 15 years what have some of the most popular styles of yoga been? Astanga and Bikram; both with, to a degree, the same sequence every time.. . Of course students can learn a huge amount from having a variety of sequences, and their bodies will benefit too. But my recommendation is balance; maintaining a consistent sequencing structure which gradually evolves and changes through the year. This allows learning, repetition and the development of skill in the practice. It will probably also aid in development as a teacher. . Trainings on this area, run by me, available around Europe.

What will you get from a yoga retreat with moi? You’ll get yoga and meditation, obviously, and the chance to explore things further through long classes and workshop style session. You’ll also get to know you’ve helped me fund my wedding. Good food is a certainty. Then, depending on the retreat, you’ll get; dog sledding, meditation in temples, sun bathing, Northern Lights, forest bathing, sound journeys, jungle exploration, thermal baths and so much more. . I’ve just added 2 more retreats for 2020 in the diary with @reclaimyourself - Japan and Norway. spaces are being taken already so get your enquiry in fast - this year there’s Italy, Iceland and the Azores to go .
