Private Yoga Class            Whakaako Tūmataiti

Private Yoga – Whakaako Tūmataiti

Yoga was traditionally taught one on one, and there’s a list of great reasons for that.

You can work at your own pace, and ask as many questions as you like as we move through the practices.

You don’t have to worry about keeping up with the rest of the class, or be forever wondering if you are ‘doing it right’.

 The sessions are developed for you and only you and focus on your specific needs & requirements.

 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


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.

I am great at teaching beginners, and at helping people find a form of yoga that works for them. My belief is that yoga fits the person, not the person fits the yoga, hence we can all find a pathway of yoga that works for us through all the ages and stages of our lives.

Our bodies are always changing, sometimes we feel the need for a gentle practice, sometimes strong, and at other times we may just need a long deep Yoga Nidra relaxation session. We may want to correct breathing issues, or learn to just be.

 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!

If you are new to yoga and want to learn a few moves before you venture out to your local studio, private sessions are a great way to get started.

If you are returning to yoga, this is an opportunity to re-familiarise yourself with the postures and breath techniques, and its a great way to get back into a regular practice and to feel comfortable in group classes again.

Please note that I am not a yoga therapist, physiotherapist, doctor, counsellor or psychologist, if you are looking for a prescription of yoga postures for specific conditions or disorders, this is not something I offer. i.e. I don’t offer prescriptive treatments for specific illnesses or injuries eg frozen shoulder, hip replacement, epilepsy, arthritis, heart disease, recovery from knee surgery etc

What I do offer are 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.
