Adrianne Burke, Founder & Executive Director
Lead Program Facilitator
Adrianne loves being in nature, and finds it to be a powerful place for healing and growth. She also loves being at home, and finding nature even in those not so typical environments. She grew up in rural Virginia and has spent most of her life since then in Washington, DC where she experienced urban life. Through both of these experiences, Adrianne found a love for understanding how our environmental plays into our ability to heal. She currently facilitates workshops that link yoga, self care, leadership development, and social justice together in one place. Adrianne’s background is in communications studies, with a minor in both Philosophy and Religious Studies as well as Leadership Studies. She began her yoga practice in 2006 while in college, starting through academic study, and later focusing on practical practices such as pranayama, asana, and meditation. She received her 200HR certification in 2015 in Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga from Faith Hunter at Embrace Yoga in DC and her advanced 300HR (500 RYT) in 2019 from Beryl Bender Birch at Studio Bamboo Yoga in Chesapeake, VA. Adrianne is also a certified Reiki Master Teacher through Intuitive Counselor Jamila White and offers Reiki trainings and attunements at all levels. She is an social justice advocate and is passionate individuals adapt to climate change and heal from environmental injustices or natural disasters. She spent over 10 years working with nonprofits on animal rights issues, environmental issues, women’s health, racial justice, voting rights, and health communication; and uses these experiences to give a real world view of how ancient practices can help us live sustainably in our new and changing world.
She currently leads daily meditations online via Clubhouse app to her over 1500 member club Abundance Activators, and is a core trainer for the 200hr Yoga Teacher Training program at Love Yoga Studio in Hyattsville, MD.
