Adele Kinghan

How do you want to feel?
In your heart, your body, your career?
When you wake up in the morning,
when you speak your peace,
when you go after what you want?

The Desire Map Workshop – Level 1 is a program for clarifying what you truly want in every area of your life, and using that powerful awareness to guide your choices from now on.

You will leave this workshop knowing your “core desired feelings” – a guidance system for your decision-making. A GPS for your soul.

We’ll look at our perceptions around “feelings” and goal setting. We’ll examine how we drive and strive, and see where in our lives we experience freedom — and where we want more of it.

You will be guided through 5 life areas to explore your most desired feelings in:

Urban Yoga Desire Mapping

  • Lifestyle + Livelihood
  • Creativity + Learning
  • Body + Wellness
  • Relationships + Society
  • Essence + Spirituality

We will create sacred space, inner and outer – an altar, backed by a great music playlist and tied together with shared intentions.

We’re going to burn limiting beliefs (figuratively, and maybe literally.)

We will offer up our own wisdom, relate, and learn from each other — like women (and some very cool dudes) always do.

You will make some soul-anchored declarations and attach them to some every day PLANS. Poetic to the practical.

As we go soul deep with desire mapping, we’ll bend our bodies with a daily yoga asana practice in the style of Embodied Flow, along with explorations in breath work, meditation and dance.

NOTE: Plan for aha’s and alleluias. After declaring their core desired feelings, people have been known to make changes. You may quit stuff, launch something, stand up, shine brighter, ask for more. You may feel the way you’ve always wanted to.

About Adele

Adele Kinghan_profileweb

Adele wants to live in a world where yoga is medicine, desire is celebrated, everyone’s default state is wellbeing, and dancing in the streets is highly encouraged if not mandatory.

With her passion for movement Adele’s first love was dance – everything from ballet to hip hop – and she was a dance teacher for many years. It wasn’t until Adele was diagnosed with bowel cancer at the age of 25 and given a 30% chance of survival that she explored yoga, first as a way to manage pain, and then to heal and regain strength.

Since returning to full health she has made yoga a regular part of her life and feels better than ever for it. In yoga Adele found the same challenge and fun she had in dance, and so much more. She healed her body, overcame fears around her illness and found a way to live fully, with grace, gratitude and an open heart.

As a yoga teacher in the style of Embodied Flow, Adele is sought after for her breadth of knowledge, empowering approach and attention to awakening – be it physical, mental and emotional. She is a master at helping students unwind unhelpful habits, patterning, tension and thoughts and in the process guiding them to uncover the best version of themselves.

In additional to her wellness journey, Adele spent 11 years working in public relations across large multi-nationals, investment banks, government and the third sector. She knows first hand what stress and imbalance does to our bodies and has developed a great toolkit to help students find a greater sense of ease, calm and flow in their life.

Adele’s extensive yoga training includes Embodied Flow with Tara Judelle, Anusara, Yoga Medicine with Tiffany Cruikshank, and Fluid Power vinyasa flow with Shiva Rea.

When she’s not on the mat she’s finding her yoga on the snow, in the water, or basking in the sunshine on her deck with a good book. You can find her cooking up a storm, walking her dog on the beach, and when her schedule allows, exploring many an intrepid destination.
