What to Expect During Yoga
Private therapeutic Yoga Sessions enable me to focus exclusively on you and your needs – what you hope to get out of yoga practice, your general fitness level, your degree of flexibility, and any previous injuries or health conditions that need to be accommodated. Yoga sessions are an educational experience(not therapy) where I design individual sequences based on your needs and goals. I email you the principals we discusss and sequences we practiced during the sessions so you can began your own home practice. For example, if you wanted a sequence to decrease anxiety and stress. I would create a protocol as as well as help you correctly engage in these postures that you would practice on your own in between sessions.
The work we together is rich and powerful; it requires you to make an investment in yourself financially and otherwise, but as a result, you will develop sustainable inner peace and contentment.
Private Sessions can be done in my office in Cornelius, on line through FaceTime or Skype, or outdoors weather permitting!

Stress Reduction: A number of studies have shown that yoga can help reduce stress and anxiety. It can also enhance your mood and overall sense of well-being. Yoga’s ability to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol may help keep calcium in the bones, improved Fitness – Strength AND Flexibility. Practicing yoga can lead to improved balance, flexibility, range of motion and strength. Improved flexibility is one of the first and most obvious benefits of yoga. Strong muscles protect us from conditions like arthritis and back pain, and help prevent falls in elderly people. It’s well documented that weight-bearing exercise strengthens bones and helps ward off osteoporosis. Many postures in yoga require that you lift your own weight. And when you build strength through yoga, you balance it with flexibility. If you just went to the gym and lifted weights, you might build strength at the expense of flexibility.
Improved Circulation: Yoga gets your blood flowing. More specifically, the relaxation exercises you learn in yoga can help your circulation, especially in your hands and feet. Yoga also gets more oxygen to your cells, which function better as a result. Twisting poses are thought to wring out venous blood from internal organs and allow oxygenated blood to flow in once the twist is released.
Management of Chronic Conditions: Yoga can help reduce risk factors for chronic diseases, such as heart disease and high blood pressure. Yoga might also help alleviate chronic conditions, such as depression, pain, anxiety and insomnia.
