Break free from habitual movement patterns and experience the authentic, natural wisdom within your body

Hi, I’m Annie Adamson.

I’m a healer at heart and educator by design.

My love affair with movement began nearly two decades ago when I first discovered yoga as a single and struggling teen mom.

Captivated by the medicinal and transformative power of the practice, I opened a yoga studio at the age of 24 in Portland, Oregon with my husband Todd. I wanted to understand how to heal my own injuries and chronic pain, so I undertook a journey to learn everything I could about the body – including why pain shows up and what can be done to remedy it.

Since then, I’ve studied injury rehabilitation and yoga therapeutics with world-renowned teachers… 

Led thousands of public classes and workshops…

And helped hundreds of private clients use the tools of yoga, mindfulness, functional movement and natural medicine to awaken to greater health, healing and self-empowerment.

Today, I’m proud to have created a method that helps countless people find greater freedom in their bodies.

Primal Vinyasa is designed to help people like you and me access their body’s natural wisdom.

As a practicing yoga therapist, I’ve witnessed again and again the detrimental effects of repetitive movement. Most of the injuries I’ve seen – including my own – could have easily been prevented through diverse, mindful movement.

I created Primal Vinyasa because I firmly believe that movement is your birthright… 

That each and every one of us has the power to bring our bodies back into balance and live life not just pain-free, but self-empowered to truly thrive.

One of the things I’m most often asked is “How is Primal Vinyasa different from yoga?”

Primal Vinyasa was born out of my desire to integrate the healing power of yoga with the wisdom of natural movement and earth medicine.

Instead of relying on alignment as a one-size-fits-all method, Primal Vinyasa is a process of repatterning movement that teaches you to use your body’s natural intelligence and strength to tap into your innate potential for healing.

The result is a self-led dynamic movement practice that truly serves your unique body – the way it was born to move. 

My Mission

To break the one-size-fits all model of prescriptive practice and offer a holistic, diverse method of movement that’s truly accessible, empowering and healing for ALL.

Turn habitual movement into movement medicine

We are naturally dynamic, strong, flexible, and deeply intuitive. Our bodies are born to move, but in our modern world too much repetition often leads to stagnation, injury and pain.

Primal Vinyasa is designed to inspire you to attend to the beautiful wisdom of your own body. Through a 5-part method, you’ll learn intelligent, functional strength and mobility training that will teach you the skills for more advanced poses, while empowering you to reclaim your body’s innate capacity for easeful, balanced and powerful movement… So you can finally take your practice off the mat – and bring more functional, mindful movement patterns into your everyday life.
