Therapeutic Yoga Private

THERAPEUTIC PRIVATE

Abhaya’s approach works within each body’s limitations and patterns. With a precise and experienced eye, teachers can help blocked muscle patterns release and return to a more easeful and balanced state. Sessions would be appropriate for those with upper and/or lower body issues; chronic back, hip, knee, and, shoulder/wrist/neck pain. The therapeutic private works specifically with the painful or injured area with care. The primary goal is to return the body to a neutral state and build a newfound strength and mobility.

In-Class Private Yoga

IN-CLASS PRIVATE

In-Class privates are the perfect opportunity for you to still get the energy of being in a group class AND receive individualized one- on- one hands on adjustments. For the entire duration of the class, you will be sweetly adjusted into ease, freedom, and flow. Abhaya teachers are trained with the utmost of sensitivity and skill. They are attuned to the uniqueness that is you and will work with your particular needs and body to free you up. Some say it is even better than a massage!

I love doing privates with beginners and intermediates. I like to do an evaluation and assessment of goals and intention with each student so I understand where they wish to grow and refine. I listen to each students breath and body to give thoughtful, personal and prescriptive methods to facilitate a students’ potential. Private students often have a specific reason for engaging private yoga teachings, so I do my best to stay in alignment with their focus so they can have the experience they want.
