Private Yoga + Mindfulness + Ballwork
THERAPEUTIC tools to help you thrive!
Do you wish to effectively address chronic pain, tension or injury once and for all? Ever wonder why no amount of yoga or exercise (or bodywork) seems to fully relieve it?
Want to experience more ease of movement and breath and a deeper understanding of your postural and movement habits, uncovering the layers of thought and emotion that can get stuck in your body?
Do you dream of a portable, accessible practice you can easily do at home or while traveling?
Want to learn more about the practices of yoga and meditation before attending public classes? Or expand and enhance your longtime practice with skillful, individualized attention?
I am passionate about offering you all of this and MORE! I bring 15+ years of teaching experience and 20+ years of study (yoga, mindfulness, functional movement, dance, and more) to meet your needs with sensitivity, empathy, and skill.
asana + pranayama + relaxation = harmony
Tailored to your individual needs, our sessions will include a blend of hatha yoga postures (asana); functional and therapeutic movement to help you develop strength, ease, and efficiency in your everyday life; mindful breathing techniques (pranayama) to settle the mind and tune the nervous system; and deep relaxation to bring every inch of you into a state of harmonious balance!
mindful focus + non-judgmental awareness = increased happiness, harmony, & peace
My mindfulness practice is grounded in Vipassana meditation (S.N. Goenka tradition), the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, and other mindfulness studies. Mindfulness is an exploration of your moment-to-moment experience that over time helps you develop steadiness of mind and body, and increased love and compassion for yourself and others.
self-massage + body/mind awareness = renewed health & vitality
Similar to using foam rollers at the gym — but much more relaxing and meditative — we use rubber balls of varying sizes and textures to stretch tense muscles and release fascia (connective tissue). The pressure created by placing the ball between your body and a hard surface such as the floor, a wall or another body part creates the optimal conditions for release and healing. Said simply, it's self-massage using toys as our tools!
I work privately with individuals, couples, and small groups. We can work in the privacy of your home or mine, or online.
Private sessions look very different than group yoga classes. Classes can offer a well-rounded experience, but one-on-one sessions allow the freedom to explore in depth your specific physical, energetic, and therapeutic needs. I've witnessed profound growth in my private students over the years and look forward to doing the same for you.
