A day in the Life of a Yoga teacher
A fun video shot by Alessandro Sigismondi featuring Adam Husler. Adam, one of London's busiest teachers, puts a lighter touch on the London Yoga scene.

You can have a peak at Adam’s very photogenic website here if you are interested. Adam prefers the 2-Dogs for his home practice, and uses the Dharma pants to cycle around town.
