With a background in Physical Education and Health; a former gym junkie and sport fanatic; a school teacher then teacher educator – lecturing at the University of Otago, Adrienne now spends her time running a motel business with her husband Chris as well as teaching Bikram and Yin Yoga plus Inferno Hot Pilates.

Adrienne has been teaching at HYD, since 2010 and has also been lucky enough to teach in some incredible studios in Germany, Spain, and the US.
She says going to a Bikram yoga class is like going home. It nurtures and protects her mind, body, and soul. It is her solace, her therapy, with a tough-love approach – physically and mentally.

Yin Yoga, on the other hand, provides an opportunity to let go, peeling back layers of expectations and self-limiting beliefs that have over time set us all in concrete. Yin goes deep, slowing us down while providing a long yawning pressure to those concrete structures of the body that over time can become self-limiting and brittle themselves. Yin is akin to a wonderfully long sigh.

Finally Inferno Hot Pilates – all work and no play… and so the saying begins. Inferno Hot Pilates is her playtime fun yet with a serious storyline – it’s her “physio on steroids”. Music, laughter and some serious muscle activation make for a strong, toned, upright body and the confidence to get what you want 100%, 100% of the time.

See you all soon!
