Adam Whiting is a musician and yoga teacher (RYT-200) who could barely
touch his knees in a forward fold before he started practicing yoga in
2007. As soon as he sank in to a regular yoga practice, the changes
that he noticed in all aspects of his life were undeniable. Not only
could he finally touch his toes, but the migraines that used to come
knocking every couple of weeks made a rapid retreat, as did the panic
attacks. There is now an unmistakable lightness to what used to be a
very heavy and somber spirit. He is forever grateful for the peace and
joy that yoga has shown him, and is beyond excited to have the
opportunity to share that joy through asana, meditation, discussion,
and song.

What is your favorite lululemon product?

Definitely the Kung Fu Pants.I don't know how I lived this long without them. I wear them teaching, going to and from the studio, hiking, lounging, and probably many times when I should be wearing real people pants.

What is your Favorite Quote?

Don't walk in front of me; I may not
follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and
be my friend. - Albert Camus

What is cause/charitable organization that is close to your heart?

Wine to Water (http://winetowater.org/). A close friend of mine helped start this amazing organization that has provided clean
drinking water to tens of thousands of people across the globe. They have dug wells and provided durable long lasting water filters to people in Uganda, India, Haiti, Sudan, Cambodia, Peru, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, and South Africa. The founder and driving force of this
amazing organization started out as a bartender with an idea. Doc Hendley is a true inspiration and proof that we all have the power to change the world.

What is the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is that I get to see transformation in people every day. Sometimes thattransformation is a student being able to hold an arm balance, or get headstand for the first time. Sometimes that transformation is seeing the fog of depression begin to clear, or the shine of confidence begin
to brighten. It is truly a dream job.

Who/What inspires you on a daily basis?

Is it too cheesy to say my dogs? The amount of love that they unconditionally send out into the world on a daily basis is astounding. No matter how grumpy, sad, angry, happy, or elated I am, they always greet me with the purest love I have ever seen.
