"Yoga should not be a training for body control;
on the contrary you must bring freedom to the body,
all the freedom it needs."
Vanda Scaravelli, Awakening the Spine
The more I work one-to-one and in small groups with people, the more I recommend it. Exploring Yoga in this personalised way gives you the chance to find out what works for your wonderfully individual and unique body and lifestyle - Yoga that is just for you.
Are your shoulders aching from too much time driving and on the computer? Are your hips and lower back tight from sitting or other sporting activities? Is your mind racing with all the pressures of daily life?
Private Yoga sessions have the power to completely transform your comfort, ease and progression because together we can work in-depth and in the moment - observing the effects and refining them to suit you.
Are there postures that you just can't seem to get in class or do you find your back or wrists hurt after your weekly group class?
To work with a Yoga teacher focused purely on helping you is truly magical. To share Yoga free of the pressure to do anything or be anything other than exactly who you are enables you to:
"After the couple of sessions I had with you I was amazed at the difference your approach makes. I'm still not entirely sure how it works but I am very happy it does... I'm not one to come out with phrases such as 'life-changing' but..." Huw
Private Yoga sessions take place either in the comfort of your home or at a local studio. Regular sessions can take you on a journey that will forever change how you do Yoga; one-off sessions can provide unique insights and experience that you can carry forward with you to your regular weekly classes.
"I feel like I've made friends with my body again. Also so much lighter and moving better in daily life, not to mention peaceful." Sue
Maybe you can't make a regular class, have specific areas of health or injury or a special occasion to celebrate. Private classes are suitable for all levels and can be fitted around your availability and aims.
Talk to me about what you'd like and I'll tailor the sessions specifically to meet your needs e.g. to relieve stress, to support particular sports, injuries or tight spots and activities like surfing, cycling, gardening or desk work. It's a wonderful way to get the very most from your Yoga in a supported space where you are free to ask questions and develop a practice specifically for you.
Private Yoga classes work equally well alone or as a couple, family, group of friends or work colleagues.
Tell me what you're looking for and I'll be happy to work something out with you.
