Private Yoga Sessions and Yoga Therapy:
Optimal for rapid progress and deeper levels of opening your body and mind. Private Yoga sessions and Yoga Therapy are most effective when done in a series. The length of each session, and the number of sessions, will be determined by you and your yoga therapist/instructor together. Sessions may be 60 or 90 minutes long.
Ask your yoga therapist/instructor about multiple session discounts.
YOGA PRIVATE SESSIONS
Traditionally, the practice of yoga was taught one-on-one, allowing access to your unique, deep inner resources.
Private yoga sessions can take you further into your strength, flexibility, stress release, and body/mind/spirit union in a private, safe atmosphere. Your yoga therapist will give you focused attention for your specific needs:
- you are new to yoga
- you want to deepen your in-class practice
- you want to develop a personalized home practice
- you want a meditation practice
- you can’t make it to regularly scheduled classes
- you simply prefer one-on-one to a class setting
In your initial consultation your yoga therapist/instructor will consut with you to detemine where weaknesses and stress may accumulate. Then a precise and customized program will be created for your needs. Your progress will be monitored ongoing for corrections and adjustments.
Talk with your instructor to schedule Private Yoga Sessions.
