Traditionally yoga was taught on a one-on-one basis. Many students still find the progress that they make rewarding when working individually.
Individual Therapeutic Yoga Lessons
Ideal for individuals with physical limitations, related disability, recovery from surgery or illness and/or students who are unable to attend regular classes due to any health challenges.
Yoga Therapy is a holistic and therapeutic application of Yoga and Ayurveda. Whether its structural alignment, movement without pain, developing strength, flexibility, relaxation, yogic breathing, relaxation techniques, or creating your own safe, home practice, sessions are tailored to meet your goals and needs. As we tap into your body’s inner wisdom, your practice will be modified and the plan will change along with your changing needs.
Your yoga journey begins with a New Client Questionnaire and an in-depth personal consultation. Sessions begin with a postural evaluation, constitutional and conditional assessment. I will evaluate your current situation, determine the source of your challenges, gain an understanding of your habits, and discuss your goals. Together we will find the appropriate yogic tools that fit your needs. This in-depth assessment usually takes about 90 min. Please fill out a Yoga Intake form.
