Group classes are a great way of being introduced to yoga. However, they are limited in their ability to ensure yoga suits your particular health needs and interests. Traditionally yoga is taught on a one-to-one basis. Learning yoga on an individual basis can allow you to practice yoga tailored to your health, interests, individual needs and aspirations. Your age, health, lifestyle, occupation and culture will be reflected in a practice given.
People come for many reasons including physical rehabilitation, support for depression and anxiety, support for living with chronic illness such as M.S., pregnancy and in preparation for childbirth, stress related health problems or for a more in-depth study of Yoga to support teacher training or personal interest.
In the first consultation, you will learn more about the process and we can discuss your reasons for coming. During this session, a health questionnaire will be completed and some simple movement to assess how your body moves. These meetings are confidential.
In addition, during this session, a personal practice will be designed and tried. The approach is client-centred and will be guided by you. An achievable practice will be given which you will need to aim to practice 3-4 times a week to experience benefit.
Through on-going meetings, your practice will be developed and refined through feedback, discussion and observation of your experience. It is usual to aim to meet for at least six sessions. After this, you can review your progress. Some students feel that this is enough for their particular needs whilst others continue to come to individual sessions for years.
The cost of the initial meeting is £60
On-going consultation rates are £45 for up to an hour and £60 for up to an hour and a half.
If you wish to rearrange or cancel a session, 48 hours' notice should be given or normal charges apply.
