Private Yoga Lessons
PRIVATE YOGA LESSONS
Some styles of yoga tend to follow a rigid repertoire of poses, especially in a group class setting. Private yoga lessons at Red Sun Yoga, on the other hand, are specifically designed to meet your needs and to help you maximize the benefits of your yoga practice.
Your instructor will first assess a number of factors to develop an informed, individualized strategy for your yoga therapy. Postural imbalances, history of injury, surgery, and other physical limitations will be taken into account when coming up with a plan to meet your health goals.
When you begin your one-on-one instruction, you’ll see how the personal attention that you can only get in a private lesson can help you meet your goals more quickly and more effectively than in a group class setting.
Private lessons are a wonderful introduction for those new to yoga. By learning variations to poses, you’ll learn how to modify difficult poses so that they are more accessible to you, and how to modify easy poses to make them more challenging.
You can also use private lessons to expand your yoga practice to include body, mind, and spirit and learn about:
- the “8 limbs of yoga”
- pranayama or energy-enhancing breathing methods
- meditation and stress reduction techniques
- guided visualization
- the philosophy of yoga
- more spiritual aspects of yoga.
YOGA THERAPY – PRANA CHIKITSA – PRIVATE SESSIONS
The body is an expression of our inner self, a storehouse of emotions, experiences and beliefs. The body begins to form around the feelings that animate it and the feelings, in turn, become habituated and trapped within the body itself creating inner conflicts that keep us from realizing our true nature and authentic selves.
This cycle can be interrupted with the application of Yoga Therapy; an energy therapy process that works with the energy or prana body. There are 108 points in the body, known as marma points, that can help release trapped energy when worked with through yoga therapy, breaking up frozen prana, returning the natural flow and balance to the body mind.
Medical research shows that Yoga Therapy is among the most effective complementary therapies for many common ailments, such as: insomnia, chronic pain, fatigue, depression, stress, and headaches.
Yoga Therapy adapts the postures of Yoga to the needs of the individual in a one-on-one private session. Each session is designed to meet your personal needs, meeting you where you are, progressing at a pace that is comfortable for you. Sessions are designed to awaken, move, balance and integrate subtle energies.
