Private Yoga Lessons
Are you looking to advance your practice? Or perhaps you are just starting. Private Yoga Lessons support each student’s personal needs & goals, address injuries and limitations & teach you how to move & reside in your body with greater awareness & ease.
Yoga is very effective at pain management, reducing stress & delivering an over-all sense of well-being. Although most practices begin with postures (asana practice), yoga has a large potential of developing into something more profound where individuals connect to their minds & bodies for greater benefits.
Yoga has many health benefits compounding over time, cultivating physical, mental & emotional health as well as spiritual growth. All practices are individually tailored to meet students needs & goals. Deep stretching gently brings muscles & bones back into their optimal alignment, while lubricating the joints. Asana practice aids in the transfer of nutrients in the body, reduces inflammation & helps prevent premature aging.
Yoga cultivates the relationship between body & mind, facilitating a deeper connection to the self & enhancing over-all health & sense of well-being. What you learn here can be taken with you anywhere you go.
