Private Therapeutic Yoga
Discover the profound benefits a one-to-one personalised yoga practice: Stretching, strengthening, breathing, meditation-- these are all elements of yoga we may use to support you in being well.
I'll work with you to identify areas of your body you need to strengthen and tone; release and stretch; rest and heal. The yoga can also be used to support mental health, including anxiety, depression, general stress levels, insomnia and serious life challenges.
This style of yoga is closest to Viniyoga a one-to-one personalised, therapeutic hatha yoga practice. I'm currently training in Yoga Therapy with Nikola Ellis of Adore Yoga in Sydney and Nikola is a student of Desikachar who developed the practice of Viniyoga with his father Krishnamacharya, who is considered the Father of modern yoga.
I will design a yoga practice for you that responses to your specific needs and goals to improve your health and wellbeing. We'll work with body + mind + breath to restore a natural state of balance, guided by the goals we collaboratively agree upon.
A one-to-one yoga practice can address a large range of conditions from aches and pains; to losing weight; stress and anxiety; the physical and emotional effects of cancer and cancer treatments; asthma; and life transitions such as relocations and relationship changes. It is not a substitute for psychotherapy or traditional medical treatment (in the case of serious illness) however, it can work very well alongside traditional medical treatments to empower you on your healing journey.
I will create therapeutic yoga practice, just for you, that give you the tools to begin taking your yoga off the mat and in to your life, where you can be empowered to take control of your wellbeing in a very practical, and holistic way.
Our first session together will be for 75 minutes. You will fill out a comprehensive health record which we will then discuss along with your goals for a yoga practice. I will guide you through a supported one-to-one yoga practice and at the end will give you a 5-10 minute home practice to work on until we see each other next. At the next session we review your progress and the process continues to evolve after each session according to your needs for as long we we continue to work together.
You will get the most out of a one-to-one yoga experience if you are prepared to invest some time and money in your health/ injury/ condition. This kind of yoga is designed to help you to better understand the needs of your body, which may very well mean modifying what you do in group classes, so that you can be empowered to care for yourself in a way that supports your health.
