For me, yoga means moving consciously through life, and making decisions that are evolutionary. It means dancing through every element of life, and recognizing every event as your teacher. I have been practicing yoga for over ten years and have been teaching for eight. I have studied Bikram, Ashtanga, Kundalini and Bhakti yoga, and combine some of these styles in my practice. My style of power yoga combines intensively physical, psychological and spiritual elements.



The first class on my first day of college, drum roll please, YOGA! AND I hated it.  Well, actually, my reaction was a bit more mixed. Perhaps the challenges were a bit too intense for me at the time.  But the seed was planted.

After graduating, I moved to Santa Monica California with his girlfriend, now wife, Leslely. It wasn't but a few weeks into residing in Oceanside that I discovered Bryan Kest's Power Yoga Class. It was what I liked to call a “LIFEQUAKE“. Bryan's intense style of Vinyasa changed my life.

Now with four beautiful daughters and 10,000 hugs later, I realized teaching yoga would be a dream!


Yoga started for me when my brother sent himself a picture in plow pose and I thought it would be hilarious to send one back to him. Before starting yoga I was perpetually depressed but through the physical, mental, and spiritual practice of yoga I have been able to get to know myself while finding relative peace in life’s oscillations. The class I teach is power yoga that gives space for physical alignment while putting focus on internal awareness with breath emphasize. Yoga that gets you out of your head and into your body.

Yoga has dramatically improved my physical wellness and has helped me develop a strong mental and emotional stability. Anyone coming in to practice will experience an increase mental and physical awareness and well-being. Practitioners will also slow the process of aging by increasing their cardiovascular health, decreasing toxicity and stagnation in the body and improving the functions of the 5 major systems of the body. I hope to heal you soon. 


I design my classes with intention to create strength, focus and proper alignment of postures while building confidence to perform the asana. Each session contains a rigorous flow sequence and is suitable for all levels of ability end expertise. My classes are challenging and every individual’s experience is so unique that, I recommend letting go of all self-judgement, thus allowing yourself the freedom to grow through yoga at your own pace. I trained with Jorgen Christiansson and have been now teaching yoga for 15 years. 



In my vinyasa classes we practice becoming more aware of our breath, our bodies, our thoughts, patterns and our truest selves.  This awareness leads us to a more peaceful, accepting, compassionate and present life.  Drawing upon my 25 years of experience practicing yoga and 9 years teaching yoga, I offer detailed alignment-based instruction, in a very gentle yet powerful and supportive way so that students are free to discover their own strengths and inner wisdom, ultimately bringing more peace into their lives, both on and off the mat, and then ideally rippling it out into the world.

Always adhering to give instruction filled with alignment cues, compassion and sense of humor. Adji synthesizes years of study in classical yoga, vipassana meditation, Sanskrit, martial arts, anatomy and physiology, and shiatsu massage. 


I make an effort to teach every yoga session with enough care and compassion so that everyone gets something out of each class. I also try to be as informative and articulate as possible during the entire session so people with a developed practice as well as beginners all receive something positive and beneficial. My overall goal in Yoga, is to help everyone to love and accept who he or she is, which is very challenging in this western society we live in.



My vinyasa flow style classes are strong and demanding, linking breath and movement through a dexterous sequence of sun salutations and postures. The continuous flow deepens breathing, increases endurance, and will allow you to test the edge of your balance and flexibility. I often include advanced postures such as handstands, arm balances or backbends.

"The space is large, bright, and has a slightly rustic feel which I love. There's something to be said about old style high ceilings and old solid wood floors. Definitely enjoy it a little more than the more common pristine manufactured studios that are popping up all over."
