Private yoga online and face to face is a very unique practice and process to the individual. Your needs & goals will determine the focus, energy and intent.
You may be working with an injury and looking to use yoga as a way to help to compliment physiotherapy, you may be looking to compliment another sport, you may be seeking something to help with stress, anxiety, depression, or to start to move the body and find some freedom and range of movement for tension or tightness.
How does private yoga work?
All private yoga varies to meet the individual where they are at but we usually start at the beginning with the breath, spending time getting used to connecting to it and utilising it.
We then explore appropriate and perhaps modified asanas (postures) with movement where useful layered in. Blends of styles and traditions may be drawn upon with the possible application of pranayama/breathing practices, use of mantra & affirmations.
This is usually a process over a course of time where we will work together, towards your focus and pace and structure will vary.
Some of the benefits that yoga can offer:
- Reducing stress, anxiety, depression
- Increasing strength
- Improving balance and flexibility
- Could improve heart health
- Could improve chronic pain
- Can support and compliment rehabilitation
- Supports and aids injuries (addressed on an individual basis)
