What we will do during a Private Yoga Therapy session?
I won’t know what exactly we’re going to do until we’re together. Sessions can vary significantly from person to person and among sessions with the same person. The best way for me to answer your specific questions is with a free 20 minute consultation. We’ll chat about what you’re looking for, what I offer and whether it’s a good fit.
What props do I need?
The following props are required for Private Yoga Therapy and highly recommended for group classes:
- One 8 ft. yoga strap
- Two 9″ x 6″ x 4″ yoga blocks
- At least two yoga blankets or other relatively firm blankets or beach towels
Virtual clients – Prop sets that include 2 blocks and a strap are usually available on Amazon for $20 or less. Feel free to ask me for recommendations.
Props are provided for in person Private Yoga Therapy and group classes. If you are attending a virtual group class and choose not to purchase props, please bring substitutes like a belt and firm boxes or stacks of books.
What COVID precautions are you taking?
- Outside private yoga therapy sessions are an option if the weather is nice. Let me know if this is of interest to you.
- You are welcome to bring your own props to in person private yoga therapy sessions and group classes. I cannot guarantee that props will be washed or sanitized between each use.
- Online private yoga therapy sessions and group classes are available via Zoom.
- For the time being, I am allowing no fee cancellations right up to the time of your private yoga therapy session. If you aren’t feeling well we can easily reschedule or move to Zoom.
- If you miss an in person group class for any reason, you are free to makeup the class at another time (if there is room available).
What yoga experience do I need before starting Private Yoga Therapy or a group class?
Those with absolutely no experience, the beginning-est of the beginners, yes, even you can sign up for Private Yoga Therapy right now. No yoga experience is required for group classes either.
I do ask that for group classes you’re able to move between sitting, kneeling and standing without pain or discomfort. I don’t mean you need to pass through yoga poses to get there or do anything else fancy. I just mean that if I say, “Okay, let’s go ahead and stand up now,” you’re able to do that easily.
What should I wear?
First and foremost, wear clothing you’re comfortable being and moving in. I do pay close attention to the way you’re moving, especially during Private Yoga Therapy, and clothing can make it easier or harder to make observations. To the extent that you’re comfortable, choose form fitting clothing. I also find it easier to see movement in shorts/capris and short sleeves/sleeveless tops than it is with pants and long sleeve shirts. Wear warmer clothes for Yoga Nidra since the body temperature will drop.
