A new student's persepective

I'd never done yoga before, so I was more than a little skeptical about the whole thing when I walked into Adam's beginner class. But Adam had me convinced after the first 10 minutes: his gentle, humorous, fabulous style won me over. He thoroughly explained the poses for us newbies, so I didn't feel totally lost. And he scaffolded new information into each pose in a fun way, by delivering an interesting tidbit of history, or a bit of factual backstory about the pose, or by making a joke. Not only did he talk us through the steps, but he modeled the poses for us himself, which made a huge difference for a visual-kinesthetic learner like me! Now I'm counting down the days 'til the next time I get to hear him say, "Namaste."
