Mentoring sessions are designed for the already practicing yoga student who wishes to delve deeper into their yoga education and practice. Through these personal classes, students are able to receive guidance in techniques and yogic practices that are not often taught in open public classes.
“There have been many times in my 25+ years in yoga that I have sought out the personal attention of my teacher and asked for individual guidance to strengthening elements of my practice. It was in these private teachings that I experienced an awakening and expansion in my yoga that I am forever grateful for. “
Private instruction can be helpful when you are ready to add in a home practice. This can be in addition to your group class times or because your personal schedule does not allow for any group classes and you do not want to give up your yoga entirely. Home practices can be as short any length of time. The idea is to be consistent and discipline. These can be for yoga asana practice, pranayama practice or meditation instruction.
I teach a medically and spiritually based qigong style called Han Shan Taoist Qigong. This particular style of qigong is always instructed on a one on one basis as it is designed to be adapted for each student’s particular needs and pacing. According to Chinese Medicine, health means a full and flowing supply of qi. Adopting a daily personal qigong practice is the best means to increasing this vibrant life energy.
IN ADDITION TO MY GROUP CLASSES, I LOVE TO TEACH STUDENTS ONE ON ONE.
Different than group classes, individual sessions are structured to meet the specific needs of the student. Whether you are new to yoga and need some introductory lessons before you sign up for your first class (which can be intimidating) . . . or you have been practicing for years and want to take a closer look at your poses to make your practice more specific for your particular body and needs, private sessions can be very beneficial. Also, if you have an injury and would like to know how to modify your practice or learn how to use your yoga as a healing modality personal instruction is invaluable.
I OFFER PRIVATE INSTRUCTION FOR THE FOLLOWING SPECIFIC NEEDS
These sessions are designed to either give you a practice or modify an existing practice that is healing for a specific injury or health concern. These sessions are also for stress-related issues so many times meditation and pranayama practices are given.
In these sessions, students receive specific postural alignment instruction to assist them in deepening their practice. These sessions can also be in the area of expanding your skills in pranayama, meditation, and/or philosophy.
These sessions are designed for those new to the practice or wanting to become more familiar with yoga before they step into public classes where attention is not individual specific. This time can also be for learning some basic yoga poses to add into to an already existing home fitness routine.
INTEGRATIVE INTUITIVE HEALING SESSIONS
These sessions are a blend of intuitive insights, healing work and some guided meditational process work based upon the spiritual psychology of Psycho-synthesis. This can be in combination with a yoga session or as a separate session.
