Yoga ~ Individual Session and small group
Hatha, Vini, Vinasaya, Alignment, Slow pace, Restorative Yoga Methodology
Working One –on-One (or in small group like Couples add $30 to the following pricing) with a Yoga teacher can help you develop a personal practice, increase your awareness of how your body moves and help you understand what Yoga and Meditation is all about. In a group class the teacher can not give full attention to an individuals need, as much as one-on-one offers. Since for group classes the focus is on the group all at once.
Yin Yoga Methodology Key Elements:
. Come into the pose to an appropriate depth for you body.
. Resolve to remain still in the pose, as much as possible, relax mind/body and practice deep breathing.
. Hold the pose for period of time 3, 5 up to 10 minutes
ViniYoga Methodology Key Elements:
· Use of repetition into and out of postures in addition to holding postures, so one becomes aware of how they move.
· The science of adapting the forms of the postures to achieve different results (functions).
· Emphasis on breath as the medium for movement in and out of asana (posture), which creates a meditative movement.
· The refined art and science of combination, which enables the development of sequences suited to the intention and context of each person’s goal.
Hatha Yoga Methodology Key Elements:
. Sun Salutations and warm up sequences, standing series, leg balances, seated poses, floor work, etc.
. The practice can be Vinyasa/Flow style or working with holding the poses for 10-20 breaths practicing body alignment ques
. Stronger poses (arm balances, inversions) may be added in sequence if desired.
. Hatha Yoga Practice includes traditional Yoga poses for strength/flexibility and breath work.
. This can be completely separate from the above noted Yoga practice or we can build meditation practice into the Yoga practice. Traditionally Yoga poses are used to prep the mind and body for Long meditation practices
. I use several different meditation practices and techniques…. Color, holding crystal/natural stone, watching breath, chant/mantra, Silent, guided visual, candle gazing, sound healing, twin hearts, etc.
