Yoga is an expressive practice that has the potential to unleash an individual’s inner creativity and voice. By providing a means to find inner stillness through physical movement, breathing, and a focused mind, yoga inspires greater awareness of one’s authentic nature.

Background and Training:
Adriana first began studying yoga during the summer of 2001. Shortly after witnessing the attacks on September 11, she found solace in the small, intimate community of her fellow yoga practitioners who came together to heal in a sacred space. Since then Adriana has explored yoga at a number of schools throughout the Northeast with teachers from various disciplines.
In June 2013, she received her 200-hour yoga teacher certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. In August 2015, she began her 300-hour advanced training at Kripalu. She is a member of the Kripalu Yoga and Ayurveda Association and a registered member of the Yoga Alliance. She has also been trained in anatomy trains, trauma-sensitive yoga, and the therapeutic benefits of yoga. She began studying meditation in 2006.
