Please come for class dressed in comfortable clothing with a loose waistband. A sweatshirt or other warmer layer is also recommended to avoid feeling chilly toward the beginning or end of class. While it is best to practice on an empty stomach, some individuals find that a small snack such as a piece of fruit or some nuts eaten about 20 minutes prior to practice is energizing.
***Although a limited number of studio props are available, it is recommended that you bring what you can in order to enhance your practice. Basic equipment would include a yoga mat, a yoga blanket, two 4″ yoga blocks and a yoga strap. Your instructor may recommend specific optional props for your needs.
Private Yoga Sessions at Essential Healing & Massage
Everyone from the novice to the most seasoned practitioner can benefit from a private yoga session. While it is wonderful to attend classes regularly, even the most experienced instructor is unable to provide individualized adjustment to every student within the group setting . The focused attention of private instruction can help you to identify and target problem areas in new ways. Sessions are designed to meet your needs and will help you to fine-tune your practice to fit your life. The individualized sessions are ideal for dialogue with the instructor in order to eliminate the confusion or “Am I doing this right??” feeling that is common among attendees of group classes. Private yoga sessions will help you to develop the art of alignment in the body, improving strength and toning muscles while preserving the integrity of joints and attachments. This safe and balanced method will help you to personalize your practice in order to reach your wellness goals.
Private 60-minute sessions can be purchased individually or as a 5-class package. Additionally, 30 minute private sessions can be scheduled before or after a massage of your choice in order to allow the therapist greater access to target areas or to boost the healing affects of the massage. Please see pricing below…
Private 60-minute yoga session: $50
5-class package of private sessions: $175 (discounted rate!!) ***5 classes must be scheduled within 7 weeks***
