Private Yoga Sessions

If you feel intimidated to attend a group yoga class, want to learn specific modifications for your body, or have a schedule that makes group classes inaccessible, consider private or small group yoga. Work with an experienced, professional yoga instructor to create personalized breathing, movement and/or meditation practice that addresses your specific needs. You can choose to work one-on-one or with one or more friends, at a time that suits your schedule.

Yoga Workshops

Yoga workshops are an opportunity for deeper work on a specific area, for example, a physical focus such as shoulder openers, an emotional focus such as practicing forgiveness, or a mental focus, such as goal setting. Most workshops are open to all levels of fitness and yoga. Scheduling varies.

Biofeedback

Biofeedback can relieve and ease chronic pain, reduce stress and anxiety and increase relaxation by training the patient in relaxation, mindfulness, and self-regulation skills. Precise instruments measure physiological activity such as heart function, breathing, muscle activity and skin temperature and accurately “feed back” to the user to promote changes in thinking, emotions, and behavior. What we can see, we can change.
