About Adrianne at Indyoga
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and the first step to improve your well-being!
Indyoga (after my cat Indy) offers group yoga classes & personal 1-2-1 yoga tuition for all levels, including yoga for beginners, in Boroughbridge and North Yorkshire. We also offer Stand Up Paddle Boarding and SUP Yoga instruction, as well as Usii Reiki Therapy, which all help bring fulfilment, flow state, movement medicine, fitness, joy, mindfulness and relaxation to daily life. A ‘one stop shop’ where you can find the right toolkit that fits YOUR lifestyle!
Our ethos is to guide you in your journey to wellness in the safest and most rewarding way possible; physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. We wish to support anyone coming to the mat from injury or social prescribing, to complement existing sports & activities, to welcome a beginner to their first yoga class and encourage existing practitioners to step outside of their comfort zone to journey deeper in their own practice. I have no doubt you will find enjoyment, fun and challenge from yoga & movement as much as the billions of people around the world from this ancient mind and body philosophy as support in a modern world.
Way back when I was 17, (over 36yrs ago), I began to train full time at professional dance schools. I sustained a serious back injury early on and I left college after 5yrs without a career path, very little spinal mobility and lower back pain. Instead of pursuing a career in dance and the performing arts I fell in to the frenetic and often stressful, corporate environment of live events. I never allowed my injury to stop me doing what I loved, including trekking high altitude mountains, water skiing to a competitive level and dancing my heels off in clubs. But… there was always something missing from my love of movement & dance and the back pain was constant. In 2011, I was recommended Yoga to relieve my pain and I was hooked! Yoga became my rehab and the injury became manageable. With the chronic pain diminishing as I came off prescription opiates, stopped spinal injections and reduced expensive physiotherapy. Yoga, or even regular functional movement, saved my back from surgery, addictive opiates and lower back pain! This was the missing key to maintain overall well-being and I am now pretty much pain free.
I took my Yoga teacher training in 2017 with Tammy Mittell at Real Flow Yoga School, and since then I have completed further trainings to expand my knowledge. Now a 400hr registered Yoga instructor in Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Yin, Restorative, Senior and Well Woman Yoga, my approach to teaching is positive & encouraging, fun & inclusive. Whilst supporting you to find the many benefits a regular yoga practice can bring, my teachings embody a balance between physical, mental and spiritual transformation through positive psychology as we introduce ‘Flow State’ to our lives on and off the mat.
With over 25yrs years spent slalom water skiing, wakeboarding, wakeskating, wakesurfing, surfing and more recently SUP, it was a natural progression to take Yoga to the water and I am a SUP Yoga and BSUPA Stand Up Paddle Board Instructor. Visit the SUP Page to find out more.
