What is 1:1 yoga?
1:1 yoga allows the entire yoga session to be crafted to what you want it to be. Some ways people use 1:1 yoga:
Create a home practice/sequence that feels accessible and doable
Recover and strengthen the body after an injury (acute or chronic)
Strengthen connection of body/heart/mind after experience of trauma or loss
A space to practice yoga and mindful movement when it might feel too overwhelming/vulnerable to go to a class
A time to ask questions about particular poses or sequences or parts of the body
Practice receiving support in cultivating a positive relationship with one's body/heart/mind/spirit
Practice being embodied and being witnessed
I’ve never done yoga before and/or I’m not flexible—is 1:1 yoga for me?
Yes! 1:1 yoga is for anyone and everyone. The benefit of doing a 1:1 yoga session is that it’s all about you and we’ll always start wherever you’re at. My mentor used to say, ‘If you are breathing, you can do yoga’ and I believe that too.
What kinds of yoga do you do?
Technically speaking, I have experience teaching ashtanga (vinyasa flow) and yin yoga, as well as a background in yoga therapy. Heartfully speaking, I facilitate mindful movement that supports affirmation of individual and collective wholeness---with curiosity and humility.
What can I expect from a 1:1 yoga session?
Each 1:1 yoga session is crafted to meet the individual’s needs. A typical session includes:
Brief check in at the beginning (this is longer during the first sessions) to talk about what you’re looking for, needs, injuries, questions, fears/uncertainties
Mindful movement and breath awareness directed by the individual’s comfort level. Dialogue and check ins throughout the session
Possibilities for assistance with passive stretching as desired
Brief debrief after session for questions, feedback
