Gentle Flow

Irene Au

Irene auOne of Avalon’s favorite instructors, Irene Au, teaches this class as a gentle, contemplative flow.  This moving meditation opens the mind and body and is a great way to start the week.

Irene teaches each Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday in the same 7 am time slot — but taught each day in a unique and different style!

Irene’s practices are both challenging and accessible to all-levels of students, offering a well-designed combination of cardiovascular exercise, strength, flexibility, agility, and balance.

Vinyasa Flow

Nicole Reynolds

One of Avalon’s most talented former Teacher Training Students, Nicole Reynolds (shown below), teaches this popular class.

She has studied many yoga styles, but currently focuses most of her attention on a creative vinyasa-flow that draws on traditional Ashtanga-based poses. She encourages students to concentrate on the overall movement and progression of their practices rather than on isolated segments of it. Typical classes led by Nicole include an elegant vinyasa-based warm-up sequence followed by deep stretches and preparation for more advanced poses.

Nicole is a familiar face around Avalon, having taken hundreds of classes, and enjoys  great rapport with her students.

(UPSTAIRS/MAIN HALL)

Adam Sewell

Adam Sewell, ERYT-500 (shown below right) a multi-talented athlete, fitness trainer, yogi, and qigong and taiji teacher, teaches each week in this slot.

Adam.Sewell.2

Adam also has a background as a professional Hollywood stuntman — he periodically takes time out to shoot films — and when not leaping out of buildings, jumping through plate windows, or crashing cars for a living, teaches a remarkably wide spectrum of movement styles, from the most gentle to the most advanced.

His classes are strong, but have a serene beauty to them that puts Adam into a special class.

Among Adam’s specialties: paddle board yoga (see on right), special balance training classes, yin yoga, strong Ashtanga-derived Vinyasas, and alignment-based yoga.

AdamSewell

Adam knows the yoga and fitness business well, first entering the field in 1990, and at one time owned his own Fitness Studio in Colorado. He has written health manuals, practiced many martial arts styles, and has trained special populations from children to Para-Olympic athletes and seniors.

Taught by his own injuries, even in his strong classes he puts strong emphasis on alignment and safety, and spends much of his time working with private clients who have back injuries.

Adam’s self-described teaching style is to “keep your ego out of the Studio and just have fun with your students” — which is why he speaks less often of “practicing” than “playing yoga.”

THURSDAY

7:00 – 8:15 am

‘Strong and Long’ Vinyasa Flow

Irene Au        

This fun, popular class taught by Irene Au is designed to get you to move and sweat.  In this class, you will strengthen and lengthen opposing muscles for a balanced practice.  Poses are linked together with creative choreography to keep you focused and present.

Irene teaches each Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday in the same 7 am time slot — but taught each day in a unique and different style!

Irene’s practices are both challenging and accessible to all-levels of students, offering a well-designed combination of cardiovascular exercise, strength, flexibility, agility, and balance.

Irene, who has held many high-level executive positions in Silicon Valley, is a much sought-after speaker who frequently gives corporate and public talks on the relationship between creativity, design, and mindfulness practice.

Adam Sewell

Adam Sewell is well-known at Avalon for his carefully designed classes
for intermediate and strong yogis held every Wednesday night from 7:15 – 8:45 pm.

See the full description of Adam’s remarkable background in the bio under that class.

Among much else — including being a past bodyguard, regular Hollywood movie stuntman, and master Yoga Teacher — Adam is also an expert in Chinese martial arts and movement traditions including Taiji and Qigong.

Startling last year, Adam began teaching the important overlaps between Yoga, Taiji, and Qigong to rapt advanced Avalon Teacher Training Students.

Now, due to repeated student demand, Adam has agreed to teach Avalon’s first ever regular Taiji class. The class will be taught in Avalon’s Graduate Studio, which we built especially for our Teacher Training Students (who have free access to it whenever it isn’t being otherwise used) a few years ago.

We expect Adam’s class to be a smash hit and new Avalon tradition. Don’t miss it! It is appropriate for all students, including those who have never tried Taiji!

Movement & Breath 

In nearly all yoga classes in the West, the modern postural sides of yoga far outweigh the traditional pranayama or controlled breathing and meditative components — which are practiced in much more sophisticated ways in India than in the U.S.

In her newest groundbreaking class, Janya Wongsopa, one of the Bay Area’s most popular instructors, redresses that historical imbalance in novel and exciting ways, bringing movement and breath together in creative ways rarely seen anywhere in the world.

This class has quickly become a favorite with Avalon staff members & teachers, who have uniformly given it rave reviews. This class goes deeper into what yoga is all about than any other we know of in northern California.
