Welcome to The Wisdom Method

The Wisdom MethodTM~developed by Kellie Adkins ~ is an embodied mindful movement practice which aims to balance the subtle undercurrents of the bodymind with mindful movement, intentional breathing, and neuromuscular retraining. Wisdom MethodTM yoga classes, teacher trainings, and workshops encourage students to direct the lens of their attention inward, to tap into that source we call flow, and to undergo a cognitive perestroika: uniting the inner with the outer and seeing with new eyes.


The Wisdom Method yoga teacher trainings are for questioners, seekers, + open-hearted teachers wanting to expand their knowledge + their minds. I train the knowledge-seekers, the innovators, + the ones who want to uplevel their yoga teaching careers …in a mindful way. As an ERYT500 and a Certified Yoga therapist, I also provide several continuing education opportunities for yoga teachers and yoga therapists. In each Wisdom MethodTM teacher training, you will learn more than just how to teach yoga. You will learn how to live yoga. On + off the mat, you will be a beacon of inspiration + vibrant passion that will inspire others + allow them to be the change they were meant to be, too. Get the details on the next program by contacting Kellie {you’ll get our abstract, times + dates, formats – retreat or otherwise, + pricing info}.

The mindfulness and meditation techniques are also important in keeping all aspects in balance. I feel great, but I look around at my friends and contemporaries, and compassionately know that they can feel and do better. I intend to provide those seniors who want to improve their aging process with the tools to do so through yoga therapy.  I have chosen the Widsom Method because of the integration of yang yoga, yin yoga and ayurveda.  In addition to the more recognized yang yoga asanas, I have found yin yoga particularly suited to seniors.  By stretching and stressing the connective tissue, the compression, shrinkage and deterioration that are normal components of aging can be improved, even reversed. I have developed a regular yin practice for myself, and feel more mobility in some joints, less back discomfort, and stronger posture.
