Adrienne Hutton, A Yoga Instructor

Hello, I am Adrienne Hutton. In my work, I teach students from all walks of life, and I encourage them to find the truth of their existence. My areas of expertise include yoga therapy, pain management, embodied anatomy, developmental movement patterns, healing through the breath, body-focused meditations, and embryology in relationship to yoga.

My Approach

I have been studying and teaching yoga for more than 30 years now. I specialize in combining the yoga tradition with body-mind centering and provide support with my knowledge of yoga, my intuition and insights, my in-depth understanding of the body, and the love I have for all.


My Personal Experience with Yoga

I was born and raised on a cattle ranch in Northeast Oregon. Yoga was nowhere on my radar. When I founded this practice, it not only began to heal my body, it opened my mind and healed my wounded soul.

I was fascinated by how this practice taught me to listen to my inner wisdom and to trust my breath. I loved the combined teachings around social justice, non-violence, truth, breathing exercises, body therapies, meditation, and much more.

In my daily practice, I watched my body, mind, and soul heal. I came to know myself, not through my wounds, but from the abiding love that existed in and all around me.

My Yoga Journey

I began studying with Donna Farhi in 1991. She introduced me to the teachings of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, who developed my body-mind centering. I continuously extended my education over the next decade, attending training with the leading yoga instructors of the time, including Rodney Yee, Angela Farmer, Aadil Palkhivala, Donna Farhi, John Friend, and Bonnie Baindbridge.

I was hungry and in love with yoga. Eventually, I went to Mount Madonna to get my teacher certification. I began to find my teaching voice and became committed to taking the teachings of yoga to the small towns I had grown up in. I am grateful for all the teachers and students who have supported me on this path.

When I decided to offer retreats, workshops, and teacher training around the world, I wanted to share the beauty of this practice with others. It is a goal of mine to maintain and pass down the importance of connection, quality instruction, and having an in-depth knowledge of the body in our endeavors as students and teachers of yoga.
