Instructor Bio

Autumn HeadshotAmbuja Yoga is owned by Autumn Adams, E-RYT 200. Autumn is originally from Portland, Oregon, but has also had the opportunity to call Boston and Hawaii home, before settling in Bend, Oregon. In addition to owning Ambuja Yoga, Autumn teaches at Juniper Yoga, Max Fitness, and Broken Top Club in Bend, Oregon.

Autumn was first exposed to yoga in 2000 but didn’t embrace yoga until college when she began to explore different styles of yoga (vinyasa, Bikram, yin, hatha, & Iyengar). Autumn was initially drawn to yoga for the physical aspect of the practice, but as her yoga knowledge began to expand she began to notice her perspective and priorities shifting.

Autumn is a Hatha- Vinyasa Yoga Instructor at the 500 hour level. She completed her 200 hour Hatha training with Yoga Indigo (Bend, OR) and her 300 hour level training with Zuna Yoga (Bali, Indonesia). Autumn has also studied Prenatal Yoga with Shana Celnicker Chong at the Bhaktishop in Portland, Oregon. She continues to deepen her practice by attending workshops with internationally recognized yoga instructors like: Leslie Kaminoff, Peter Sterios, Baxter Bell, Kathryn Budig and Rocky Heron among others. Autumn’s classes blend vinyasa & hatha yoga into an accessible, yet challenging practice that encourages intention, grace, & courage.

Autumn, her husband and their two dogs moved to Bend after wrapping up a 6 month trip through Asia where they practiced yoga, trekked in the Himalayas, climbed remote jungle peaks, and explored distant islands.

Autumn Adams is an avid yogini, foodie, hiker and traveler. When Autumn isn’t practicing yoga she can be found exploring Central Oregon, playing with her two naughty pups (Sal and Jedi), whipping up amazing meals for friends and family or deepening her knowledge of yoga.

Autumn is currently planning three upcoming retreats that include her great loves: yoga, hiking, food and adventure. She is hosting the Third Annual Back to Nature: Women’s Yoga Retreat in Mohawk Valley, Oregon July 15-17, 2016, a Yoga and Surfing Retreat in Nicaragua March 5-12, 2016 and a Yoga Retreat on the Greek island of Ithaca June 25-July 2, 2016. Autumn is available to teach weekend yoga workshops throughout Oregon. For more details contact Autumn at
