Adelene Cheong

A practitioner, a student, a teacher and trainer of yoga… Adelene felt blessed to be on this journey with many who seek love, peace and truth. Through yoga, Adelene reconnects to being truly integrated in life and all it has to offer.

Having been diagnosed with a progressive S-curve scoliosis at age 13, some activities which were once limited have now been made more accessible in her life. Adelene enjoys horse riding and scuba diving, a beginner in wall climbing. She finds sanctuary to be intimate with nature, especially when hiking.

For over a decade, she has been and still is a long-time student apprentice to Judith Hanson Lasater (Senior Assistant) and Donna Farhi (Senior Associate), whom she continues to study and assist. She has deep gratitude towards all her teachers past and present who has supported her journey, and finds inspiration in serving and sharing yoga through teaching.

Adelene believes in supporting and guiding her students to unveil their fullest potential, through embodiment and experiential exploration. She is particularly interested in the therapeutic applications of yoga. As a leading Restorative Yoga Trainer, she is absolutely committed to a balance of both active asana and restorative practices.

Based in London, Adelene teaches internationally, with a special interest in Yoga for Scoliosis / Backcare, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra and mentoring.

"As a yoga teacher I'm well aware that yoga helps to reduce stress and anxiety however this course took my understanding, my personal practice and my teaching to a whole new level. I feel that I now have not only direct personal experience of how mindfulness can transform our experience of the world around us but that I also have the knowledge and skills to introduce others to the benefits of mindfulness, self-compassion and compassion for others. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to incorporate these elements into their professional practice. It was well taught, well organised and well worth the money."
