Are 100 % Designed For You
I mainly offer private lessons and the reason for this is it allows me to tailor the practice to fit your needs.
Prior to our first class we will meet for a consultation. This provides me with the lovely opportunity of getting to know you. By sharing your goals, your personality and your lifestyle, we can work together to create a curriculum that allows you to explore your self on a physiological, psychological and potentially spiritual realm.
We are all unique snow-flakes; by that I mean there is no "one-size fits all" approach to yoga. Its completely dependent on a few things such as your lifestyle, personality and physiology. Every body has a story and some people carry that story with them differently. Whether its through posture; breath; previous or current injury/trauma; mental illness, etc. By utilizing a one-on-one approach to yoga we can develop a practice that enhances your overall experience.
After this meeting we will begin practicing in the comfort of your own home. I don't know about you but I find yoga studio's intimidating, overwhelming and often too sweaty for my comfort. An at home practice allows for the opportunity to build on your practice throughout the week in between our sessions, stress and hassle free. This eliminates the need to carve out travel time to and from a location.
Breath work throughout yoga decreases stress, reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, lessons anxiety and promotes an over all healthier life. Breath will be a pivotal focus of our physical practice; linking it with movement. Utilizing this will enable the body to calm down, restore the central nervous system (by utilizing the vagus nerve) to promote better functions of the circulatory, respiratory, reproductive and digestive systems. Revitalizing your body and your psyche.
Meditation has scientifically been proven to reduce various physical and mental health concerns. The benefits of meditation are that it reduces the amount of cortisol in your body, lessening the overall stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. Meditation reduces aging, reduces risk of Alzheimer's, decreases cardiovascular disease and decreases mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression.
The benefits of learning the basics of breath work through pranayama techniques and conscious breathing will provide you with the ability to control your nervous system. In turn your self-awareness and self-control will expand: including your behaviours, emotions and reactions. Meditation allows for better cognitive function, allowing your brain to function at a clearer capacity. This is a tool that we will begin working on if you have an interest.
We will work together towards your goals, having fun along the way. I want to share with you strategies to be better equipped to tackle the many dimensions of life. Allowing you to enjoy it to the fullest!
