Private Yoga – Whakaako Tūmataiti
The word yoga comes from Sanskrit, the language of ancient India. It means union, integration, or wholeness. It is an approach to health that promotes the harmonious collaboration of the human being’s three components: body, mind, and spirit”. – Stella Weller
Private Yoga Sessions
Restorative Yoga – for women who are looking for a practice to nurture their nervous systems. Restorative yoga is wonderful for pre/peri & post menopause, and also wonderful for those with anxiety, stress, pelvic floor or chronic pain disorders. It is gentle, supported, regenerative and of course, restorative to the whole body-mind.
Beginners or returning to practice – for those wanting to learn yoga or who are restarting their yoga practices. And for those who have sustained an injury and need to learn modifications for the asana.
Deepening your practice – for those wanting to explore other aspects of yoga; pranayama, mantra, meditation.
Working one on one, we can create a personal sadhana (practice) that you can then take into your daily life, to practice anytime and anywhere.
A private session gives you the time and opportunity to select which practices are going to serve you. When we work together in this way, you can really deepen your practice and fully connect with yourself, mind, body and spirit. Yoga just makes us feel good, inside and out!
I offer practices that are beneficial to you as a whole person, taking into account your current mental, emotional and physical state of being. Often when we think of yoga we think or physical postures, but there are many tools in the yogic toolbox, and your body may not be able to move into traditional yoga poses at the present time. We can however, learn yogic breathing techniques, mudras, and experience deep relaxation, and sometimes that is simply all we need, space and time to fully and deeply relax.
My belief is that yoga is a holistic practice and a life science, and that a combination of yogic practices; asana, pranayama, mudra, chanting, meditation, and yoga philosophy are what serves us best. The development of awareness of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritutal selves through these practice are what will bring sustained and long term improvements to our lives.
