Raised in East London of Nigeria decent Fela Adebiyi has extensive international experience as a yoga teacher. Fela began studying Iyengar yoga in 1991, and 6 years later began practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Alex Medin and became his assistant.
Fela is a yoga teacher registered with Yoga Alliance and holds an advanced E-RYT 500 designation. He has trained in Iyengar, Ashtanga, Viniyoga, and Himalayan Meditation traditions and has been teaching in Europe and Asia for more than fifteen years.
His teaching brings together the precision of alignment, anatomical detail, and profound meditative experience.
Based for several years at The Living Room by Octave, Shanghai’s premier wellness center. Fela can teach several different styles of yoga and teaches students of all levels.
His practice and teaching have been influenced by the works of Swami Veda, David & Simi Roche, Alex Medin, INSPYA founder Lance Schuler, John Scott, Simon borg-Olivier and Rajiv Chanchani.
Fela is a long-time student of the meditative arts following the Himalayan traditions and Buddhist studies, beginning with Vipassana. His teaching style is unique in being able to weave together a poetic metaphor with clear instruction filled with compassion and humor.
Fela lives the yogic principles in all areas of his life and his empathic communication style brings healing, and in his teachings, he applies that same method of picking each individual up where they are in their practice. But he teaches so much more than asanas.
With his mindset of equanimity and self-realization, he naturally opens up new perspectives in other areas as well, like self-care, relationships, tenderness and nutrition for spirit, body, and soul.
Fela is uniquely equipped to guide people to new realms of consciousness and he does from the position of teacher and student alike.
