It can be intimidating to get on a yoga mat for the first time. The postures are new, some of it’s in Sanskrit, and when it comes to a physical practice, sometimes what we need is to be shown and/or directly guided into a posture. You also may not be sure what style of class is best suited for you as there are so many variations. We hear a lot about how wonderful yoga is, and it truly is, when done safely. I spent years in incorrect alignment, causing my body injury, before a teacher took the time to show me differently and discuss how it felt in my body. And, each body is different and we each feel differently in poses. Modifying and adjusting to how our body is that day is an essential part of the practice … and having someone to guide you into a posture, to offer adjustments specific to your body, may change your entire practice.
To support you in your journey, I meet you where you are and offer a variety of packages (minimum 3 sessions) to discuss the postures, alignment, how they actually feel in your body, and offer a customized flow to introduce you to this amazing practice. This may be Vinyasa, Yin, or Adaptive styles of yoga. I ask for a minimum of 3 sessions so you can practice it at home and come back to discuss any questions that came up or make any adjustments that are needed. It would be an honor to introduce this practice to you.
Customized Private Yoga
Perhaps you’re not a beginner but have questions about your practice. Or maybe you would like to explore a deeper physical practice with specific postures or body parts (hips anyone?) in mind. Or maybe you would like a more advanced flow that you just aren’t finding in public classes. Maybe you need support with accountability and having a private guide will help you remain connected to your mat. Whatever it is you are seeking, I’d love to discuss your intentions/goals and create a customized practice for you.
This option encompasses more limbs of yoga than the physical practice inclusive of samskara (habits/patterns) exploration, pratipaksha bhavana (cognitive reframing), meditation, asana (physical practice), pranayama (breathwork), and more. This is more about taking your yogic practice off the mat and using it as a tool to gain insight into yourself, how you live your life vs how you dream of living your life, how you engage with the world, and setting/manifesting intentions. Yoga can be a transformative practice, beyond just the physical and into the subtler vibrations of our emotions, thoughts, consciousness, and the unified field all around us.
I offer a variety of packages (minimum of 3 sessions) to discuss what it is you are seeking and develop a Sadhana that works for you. With multiple sessions, we’ll be able to heuristically determine what does and doesn’t work and refine your practice to something that supports you on your journey.
Yoga Nidra and Guided Meditations are a powerful way to create shift in your MindBody. They can help you heal, transform, manifest, connect, destress, love more deeply, and so much more. I’d love to discuss what it is you are working on in your life and to write a meditation specifically to support you on your journey.
