#98: Adam Hocke: How to be a healthy sceptic... or skeptic!?
You are not your thoughts. Be sceptical/skeptical of anyone who is too certain. Who is a fundamentalist. Who is dogmatic and unwilling to question anything, especially their own ideas. ⠀
Your ideas don't define you. No one defines you. We are ever changing, ever evolving observers. ⠀
Follow the teachings not the teacher. ⠀
These are my main takeaways from this conversation with @adam_hocke. Adam teaches precise, strong, and practical yoga classes to students in London, blending contemporary understandings of movement and mindfulness with the traditions of yoga. His popular video and audio classes stream online to yogis in over 150 countries.
Adam is a senior student of Jason Crandell, whom he assists on advanced teacher trainings and immersions. He holds a BFA and MA from New York University, where he was awarded the Newington Cropsey Fellowship for emerging artists and scholars.
He is also a lovely chap!
