Lifestyle and Personal Development Coaching
is a holistic approach to that helps clients recognize imbalances and misalignments in their beliefs and their reality. The tasks are to re-align and re-condition the mind to stay balanced and focused on healthier approaches to living. Areas examined during sessions are personal habits, self-esteem, past experiences and beliefs, present conflicts, strengths, weaknesses, and the individual's life situation.
Private Yoga/ Couples Yoga
Yoga at Work
Yoga Therapy trains the body and mind to respond to stress differently and reconditions the body in a gentle healing manner. By applying yoga exercises and techniques to bring one back into alignment physically, mentally and emotionally it is possible to develop an optimally functioning body and calm, centred mind. Areas of tension/pain are addressed, manipulated and taught to relax. Once relaxed the body is trained to function in a more effective, energy efficient and functional way.
Although there are many benefits to be gained from attending a group yoga class, an ideal way to learn yoga and develop a personal practice for individual needs is with private yoga sessions. Your needs are assessed and your class is in the comfort of your own home, workplace or at various studios, even outside in nature. A catered yoga practice of postures and breathing will be developed and taught; one that is appropriate for your particular needs.
Yoga is a holistic approach to physical and mental health, as well as a person’s well-being and personal growth. Yoga gives the skills to manage stress effectively. In this way, yoga benefits the workplace by increasing energy levels, which increases productivity, improves attention span, ability to focus and stamina. Corporate yoga is fast-growing in North America. Business leaders are recognizing the stress-reducing, energy-enhancing benefits that on-site yoga brings to their employees.
