Yoga has been a part of Adelle’s life since she was 19 years old when she picked up a copy of “The Sivananda Companion to Yoga”. Over the years, her yoga and meditation practice have been private journeys, continually sustaining her life and working to open her heart and mind along this winding path. Adelle completed her 200hr Teacher Training with Tiffany Cruickshank’s Yoga Medicine in 2016 and is currently working toward her 500hr Yoga Medicine Certification. She has completed certifications in the Traditional Chinese Medicine Module, Yin & Mediation, and Women's Health Modules.
Adelle’s intentions for her classes include ways to attune to breath, body, and mind, with skillful and safe alignment and a balance of mindful movement and stillness. She looks forward to a lifetime of further training and service in the yoga community and is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the Yoga Mat team.
Adelle is an Amarillo native, wife, mother, holds an MS in psychology and has owned and operated another local business, Clothez Exchange, for 15 years. With much gratitude, she became owner of The Yoga Mat Amarillo in January of 2019.
Adelle deeply enjoys spending time in nature, camping, hiking and sitting in silence or listening to the sounds of nature, loves surprises of all kinds and a bit of fantasy football.
Adelle is also a Compassion Cultivation Facilitator in Training enrolled in the Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT) Teacher Certification Program at the Compassion Institute.
Additionally, Adelle is a current student of Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach’s Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program, Class of 2021.
