PRIVATE YOGA + Meditation / COUPLES YOGA
Accessible, Personalized, Accommodating
"Traditionally, yoga was shared between one teacher and one student. Together, they would work towards the goal of increasing personal awareness and developing potential through self-study; the yoga teacher acting as a guide and mentor along this journey. "
I cater to the busy person/people that understand the importance of a healthy work-life balance but has difficulty fitting a set class into a compact schedule all in the privacy of your home or office.
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 their individual needs is with private yoga sessions. Your needs are discussed and assessed and your class is specially designed to meet your goals.
Your yoga practice of postures and breathing will be developed and taught; one that is appropriate for your particular needs. We will consider your general health, specific injuries or conditions, age, strength, flexibility, and life circumstances.

Meditation is an umbrella term for the many methods toward a relaxed state of being. There are many types of meditation and relaxation techniques that have meditation components. All share the same goal of achieving inner peace.
Rather than practicing next to each other explore Yoga classes together enhancing the experience by assisting one another and stretching your levels of trust and strengthen communication with benefits far beyond the physical. Couples really stay in the moment and work together toward common goals which is mutually beneficial for both participants physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually. Beginners welcome!
Releases tension and reduces stress
Increases energy flow between the couple
Laughing together increases joy
Breathing together, co-operative movements and deep relaxation with your partner causes a phenomenon called entrainment. Entrainment happens when people unite in a similar rhythm. When you merge and sync your practice with your partner, your breath, movement, and body positions find a rhythm together. It creates harmony and a stronger bond and may be the most intimate and fulfilling times you’ll spend together.
When you and your partner practice together doing Asanas (yoga poses), you must trust each other in every pose. You rely on your partner to hold onto you, stay put, or stay balanced. This total reliance on the other creates a sense of trust and reassurance as you realize your partner is there for you. These small successes in a couple’s practice are different than in daily life but they create a special bond. A partner yoga is about give and take and you learn that sometimes you can and should relinquish control. All of the lessons learned in a yoga practice often transfer to life off the mat.
While yoga is a serious practice that requires effort and focus, just figuring out how to get into a pose can lead to a fair amount of laughter. In addition to being fun, couple’s yoga is quite intimate. You have to work together and with the right attitude, this practice strengthens the bond between you.
Experience the bliss.
