New Group Yoga Class at Living Waters Therapies

Starting Wednesday’s this November I will be offering a new group yoga class at Living Waters Therapies. This class is slow paced and gentle so you can start to develop a deep physiological awareness to be able to respond to the signals your body is sending you at every moment. You can also expect to experience breath work, mindfulness, meditation and functional movement based in Yoga Therapy aimed at helping you to move better. As you develop awareness of your movement habits and learn how to quiet compensations your body will begin to release from cycles of pain and tension, then flexibility, stability and strength arises.

3 Easy Steps to a Personalized Home Yoga Practice this Summer

FullSizeRender-5

I hear all the time, “I love the idea of practicing yoga but I just don’t have time to go to a studio. I can’t afford regular private yoga classes, how can I have a yoga practice without the cost and time commitment?”

I hear you!

Now that summer is almost here, the days are longer and we are spending more time with outdoor activities and travelling. As much as ever, it is important to dedicate certain activities to a regular routine or schedule. If yoga is on your radar as a part of your self-care this summer, I can help you get there without having to commit to regularly scheduled classes or dragging yourself away to a studio for group classes. Like any skill or good habit you want to develop, you do need to set aside some time and dedication to practice. It really is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

The 3 Step Process:

Step 1: Book a complimentary consultation with me (10-20 minutes) to discuss your goals and what you would like your personal yoga practice to look like.

Step 2: Book a 1 hour private yoga session at your home with me. You will learn a personalized yoga sequence that you can practice as often as you want. I will write out the sequence for you with diagrams. I will break down how you can use it for shorter practices if a full hour isn’t an option for a daily practice. How awesome is that? Only 1 private yoga class and you are all set!

Step 3: Dedicate time daily or as many days of the week as you want to practice the sequence I taught you. The more often you practice the better you feel, the more energy you will have and the better you will sleep at night.

Step 4 (optional) – Book a follow up session. I will go over your sequence with you, check your alignment, answer any questions you might have and help you add to or modify your practice as needed. (Bonus: If you book a follow up session at the same time as your initial session I will include weekly accountability calls (up to 4) to check in and see how your practice is going.)

When we take care of ourselves, we are better able to take care of others and the world becomes a more beautiful place.

Now Offering a Community Yoga Class

This space is able to accommodate up to 8 people and features a seating area, changing room space, kitchen and bathroom. There is free parking available in the lot accessible from Mosley street. I love that this is small space, which means that I will be able to offer attention to everyone’s yoga practice. These classes will focus on breath work (pranayama) and gentle asana  (stretch and strengthen) that focuses on principals of alignment. We will also develop a mindfulness based meditation practice. Bring your own mat.
