Sometimes we need to roll around in the mud and the muck with Kali, in order to embrace our own transformation. It is especially true in this season, the darkest time of the year, this time as we approach the Winter Solstice. When we actually remove ourselves from the glaring lights of the city, of department stores, of holiday frenetic cheer, when we find some space of isolation, we realize that the darkness is there too. When we accept the darkness, we are more ready and able to turn our gaze toward the light.
I just taught the best Private Yoga session ever!
Seriously though, I love working with yogis one-on-one, there is so much to be gained, both for you, the practitioner, and for me, the teacher.
Here are THREE reasons why you should invest in yourself!
FIRST: We've all heard that yoga can heal. But can yoga be effective in a public class, where the teacher's attention is divided among 20 different people, all with unique bodies, strengths and limitations? Sort of, but it requires an incredible amount of knowledge and awareness from the practitioner to facilitate their own healing within that framework. Better, if a teacher can work one-on-one with a student, then that very skilled teacher can pinpoint areas of strength, weakness, tightness or laxity, then provide specific cues, actions, engagements and releasing, to better facilitate the healing process.
SECOND: You work REALLY HARD, so an hour is a lot of work! In a Private session we can cover a lot of ground. And because all attention is on you, and you want to do your best, you work really hard to do it right! The time invested is well spent.
THIRD: What do you want out of your yoga practice? Want to get stronger? More flexible? Better backbends? Or, more relax and restore? Meditation? Breathing? What you want out of it is what you get. It's YOUR class! A Private session is neither whatever the teacher feels like teaching that day, nor a conglomeration of poses thrown together from conversations at check-in as to what various students would like to address in that class. A Private session is YOURS and only yours. So, what do YOU want to accomplish today?
