Your Instructor

Course Creator

Adrienne Shum

As a career yoga teacher for over a decade, Adrienne practises and presents yoga as a structure for cultivating deeper gratitude, intelligence, and generosity. Her yogic studies are complemented by certification as an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counsellor and a Master’s degree in Food Science. Her quest is to support others in personal and collective well-being.

The Teaching Approach

Adrienne offers a place for you to practise, as an opportunity to wake up to ourselves and our world. With playfulness, depth, and compassion, her classes hold space for you to come as you are. 

This online approach invites you to turn your attention inwards, with an emphasis on the interoceptive and inquisitive experience. She offers physical postures that blend traditional yoga poses with functional movement. In peeling back the layers of body and mind, this serves to increase stability in chaotic times. 

The quieter classes emphasize downregulating the nervous system and creating a moment for pause. The active classes offer more physical challenge, but a steady focus on breathwork is a continuing throughline to the subtler aspects of practice. In both cases, the emphasis is on balancing our active and passive tendencies. 

Amidst her guidance, Adrienne weaves in the wisdom of yoga, Ayurveda, and Buddhism (and street smarts!), creating a well-rounded experience for you to integrate into your own life.
