Ada Mumbai Adams
Healer, Instructor, TherapistAda Mumbi is a gifted healer, teacher, speaker, and ordained minister. Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Ada was raised as a Christian and grew up in a very diverse community. By the tender age of 5 it was apparent to all who knew her that she was special—she had the gift of healing by touch. In 2007, Ada attended her first Pranic Healing class, which changed her life. She was so impressed by the miraculous healings that she witnessed, she knew she had to learn more. Since then Ada is a Certified Associate Pranic Healer. With the completion of each course, Ada’s knowledge and healing gift has increased significantly. To promote her spiritual growth and development Ada has adopted the practice of Arhatic Yoga, which keeps her centered and aligned with the Divine. Ada is currently enrolled in the Bachelor in Holistic Health Sciences degree at Quantum University where her academic focus is Nutrition, Aromatherapy, NLP and Hypnotherapy. Her anticipated degree completion date is March 2019. In January 2017, Ada formed her own business called Mana by Mumbi, LLC, which is located at Snellville, Georgia. In addition to hosting a weekly Meditation on Twin Hearts, Ada provides an array of Physical, Emotional, and Psychological Healing services, including; Arthritis, Trauma, Anxiety, Addictions, Cellular Healing, Generational Healing, Pranic Face lift and rejuvenation. Ada is an avid student of African Herbology and uses her knowledge in this area to help clients when it is appropriate.
About six years go, a dear friend asked me to join her for a hot yoga class. I was so intimidated. I thought, there is no way “I” can do hot yoga. I arrived close to the time the class started. The only spot available was front and center to the entire class. I was so nervous. Shortly after that first class, I was hooked. I had been searching my whole life for an experience that would incorporate movement and mediation. The movement of Hatha yoga has strengthened my body, but the mediation healed me.
I have worked in early childhood education for over twenty years. In 2014, a vision was placed on my heart to become a counselor. I went back to school and obtained a second Master’s Degree in Pastoral Counseling. Today, I have thriving counseling practice in the Lawrenceville community. In February 2019, I felt another tug on my heart to become trained to teach yoga. It was my hope that I can assist others to heal the way I have healed through the moving mediation of yoga. In November 2019, I received my RYT200 from Performance Power Yoga. I am registered with Yoga Alliance.
My intention is to offer an intentional, connected, and mindful yoga class for my students.
I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and this beautiful journey has bestowed upon me tremendous bliss and peace. Like so many others, I came to yoga with the thought it would be an addition to my fitness routine, and, it certainly became as such. However, along my yoga road I began to experience the true essence of yoga. My body and breath began to relax, my mind became calmer and focused and I began to discover a new inner self. In the hectic environment we belong to, the calming effect of yoga assists to bring us back to the present moment and reminds to take care of oneself.
My desire to study yoga more deeply led me to embark on a teacher training program and hold a Yoga Alliance E-RYT 200 Hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification, and, Yoga Alliance and International Kundalini Yoga Teacher Association Teacher Certification. In addition, I hold certificates to teach yoga specific for depression, PTSD, addictions and personal experience with yoga for cancer.
I hear so many people say they cannot do yoga because they are “not flexible enough” and my reply is “Everyone can do yoga!” My classes include therapeutic techniques that will begin to strengthen and release tension in the various muscles along with various breath meditations to enable the whole body and mind to release the stored stress.
When I am not on my yoga mat at home or in a yoga studio, you can find me out hiking with my husband and our four labs or kayaking on a nearby lake or river.
Come flow with me and share the beautiful practice of yoga!
Blessings and Peace – Namaste – Sat Nam!
