MORNING AWAKENING - 13 MINUTES
Bill Ades is a certified yoga teacher who is registered with the Yoga Alliance RYT 500. He is also a health and wellness educator, specializing in mindful meditation, consultations in health, nutrition, lifestyle and business. He practices in New York and loves helping people obtain their life goals. His integrative approach takes into account all of his clients' needs, and through yoga practice and healthy food choices, helps them to reach their optimum mental, physical, and spiritual state.
His journey as a yoga teacher began when, after practicing yoga for a number of years, he decided to take his passion to the next level. The search for a course in order to help him realize his dream of becoming a teacher, included one whose schedule did not interfere with his observance of Shabbat and the Jewish holidays.
He eventually came across The Kaivalya Yoga Method Teachers Training Program - the first ever yoga teacher certification course to be offered online, which included everything taught in an in-person course and so much more. Over the course of a year he worked diligently, submitting video assignments, and learning all about the yoga practice and applying it to his observance in Torah.
He immediately found a niche in the Orthodox Jewish community as there were a number of men who wished to practice but required a teacher who was both male and was able to teach them in a manner, which did not conflict with their Torah beliefs and observance. Soon after, Ades began to further his studies in deeper into the practice at the American Yoga Academy, finding that the school offered weekday training, accommodating him on days in which he could not be attend, such as Yom Tob.
Bill Ades currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife and family where he practices out of his studio located right off the BQE as well as virtually from his home studio.
