1-2-1 & Private Yoga
A great way to create space and time for yourself. To develop and tailor your practice to your particular needs. Creating adjustments and use of props to support you in your general practice, building up confidence in preparation for joining in a group session or as part of rehabilitation after injury, surgery or pre and post cancer treatment.
Sessions can be online or in person. Which ever you decide works for you online or in person my 121 sessions offer a fully bespoke session focusing solely on your needs.
Private 1-2-1’s and 2-2-1 Sessions
You may be deciding that you feel you need or want to begin yoga, 1-2-1 is a great way to take that first step and have the full attention on you and your individual needs.
You may be recovering from injury, surgery, on a journey with cancer or suffering from illness and need some support with rehabilitation and your journey back to your own practice or feel yoga would help with your recovery.
You may want to focus and enhance your current practice or wanting support with day-to-day challenges.
Whatever the reason 1-2-1 sessions are a great way to support your body heart and mind through the day-to-day challenges we face and is extremely important for a health body and mind.
I like to see yoga and all it brings as tools to put into our tool kit of life. Simple things like being mindful of your posture throughout the day, simple breathing exercises to help boost energy or calm feelings of anxiousness, how to find peace in your day to allow time to clear the mind of clutter – I like to call this finding some quiet in the crazy or simply understanding the importance of healthy weight bearing through our joints especially as we get older.
A 1-2-1 session with me is designed to give you a tailored practice. Working with your body, taking time to work through adjustments, alignment tweaks and tips for your own personal practice, focus on a particular pose or flow, breath work or meditation. We will work together to map out what you are wanting from your practice, I will supply crib sheets of specific flows that can be practiced in between sessions. I like to approach 1-2-1’s as a partnership helping you to help yourself, to maintain a healthy body heart and mind, fully tap into the power of yoga.
