How are private therapeutic yoga sessions different from group yoga classes at local yoga studios?
My West Hartford yoga studio is private and sessions are one-on-one, so there is no need to worry about rushing to class, trying to find a parking spot (or a place to put your mat), being judged by the 22-year-old behind you, or any of the other hassles that come with yoga in a large studio. If you’re looking for “exercise yoga,” search somewhere else, because you will not find that here either.
When you book a session with me, we’ll work to find a time that’s right for you. Then I’ll guide you through therapeutic yoga in the privacy and comfort of my studio, whenever it makes the most sense for you.
Sessions with me are all about you and your needs. Because you’ll be the only student, you’ll have 100% of my attention, knowledge, and expertise at your disposal. My sole purpose is to make you feel better by designing and helping you through a plan that is catered specifically to you, so you may experience transformation through yoga—at your own speed and on your own terms. We’ll even create an at-home plan for you to supplement the work we do together.
When you make the commitment to self-care with therapeutic yoga, we will create a strategic plan that is right for you and your needs—and I’ll be with you every step of the way. We’ll work on proper alignment, modifying each pose to suit your body and needs, guiding you to deep relaxation, which nurtures well-being.
One gentle word of advice, however: your progress will depend on your commitment to your health and well-being and your willingness to let go of old beliefs and limiting thought patterns. A positive attitude is a must. (But what do you have to lose? Just your pain and suffering.)
What is therapeutic yoga?
Therapeutic yoga is a combination of restorative yoga poses (where the body is supported with yoga props), gentle stretching, breathing exercises, sound therapy, aromatherapy and more. The practice is designed to master the mind, relax the body and feed the soul.
The type of yoga I’ll teach you is accessible to all individuals, at any stage or age in life.
Even if you think you hate yoga, you’ll be surprised at how different my approach is. Don’t base your idea of yoga on a bad experience in an impersonal group class — try the one-on-one difference and discover the true healing power of yoga for yourself.
Yoga teaches us emotional intelligence, gives us the ability to watch our reactions, and trains us to be kinder people.
It’s not a selfish practice, even in private one-on-one sessions. If anything, yoga is the opposite — it teaches us compassion, awareness of others, and listening skills.
Most importantly, it teaches us to be present in our own lives.
How can private therapeutic yoga sessions help?
When practicing private therapeutic yoga, you’ll have time and space to relax into the postures, while listening to the wisdom which guides healing from within. The postures themselves will help your body release accumulated tension by deeply stretching your muscles and connective tissue.
This unique blend of mindfulness, movement and meditation will guide you into a profound, relaxed, and stress-free state. It is said that the breath is the bridge that connects the body and mind. By allowing the breath to flow freely, we allow the life force to flow throughout the body, removing stuck energy, emotions or blocks buried within the cells, creating a space for well-being.
Start where you are
Based on your unique needs, I’ll develop a holistic wellness plan for you that will include therapeutic yoga, reiki, meditation, mindfulness, movement, mindset coaching and more.
From there, we’ll explore things like your relationship to food, sleep, water intake, stress, and your mindset.
Your commitment to the process is key—and the outcomes you can enjoy with devotion to yourself can change your life. With my guidance, you’ll uncover your best life and the healthiest, wealthiest and most joyful version of you. You’ll learn to understand the signals your body and mind are sending you. You’ll learn to develop and trust your intuition and always know the best path for you in your life.
