"I relate to you the means to be employed for destruction of errors;
Without the practice of yoga, how could knowledge set the Atman free?
Inversely, how could the practice of yoga alone, devoid of knowledge, succeed in the task?
The seeker of Liberation must direct his energies to both simultaneously.
The source of unhappiness lies in Ajnana (ignorance);
Knowledge alone sets one free.
This is a dictum found in all Vedas."
Yogatattva verses 14–16.
Personal Yoga Lessons
"Tailored to your needs."
Originally, yoga was taught by a teacher who worked with people on a one to one basis. The lesson would be tailored specifically to the needs of the person, their health, body type and lifestyle. Although group yoga classes are now the most popular way of learning yoga, this doesn't suit everyone. If you're interested in a personalized approach, then private yoga classes could be for you.
Private yoga lessons are ideal if you:
- would like a personal plan to improve your health and wellbeing
- are a beginner who wants to learn the basics before joining a group class
- are someone who is recovering from an illness or has a health condition
- would like to explore yoga at your own pace
- are not comfortable in group settings
- are very busy, find it hard to fit in a regular class and want to practise yoga at a time to suit you
- would like to take your practice to a deeper level and incorporate yoga philosophy and psychology
- would like to treat yourself or someone else to a gift of yoga
Every person is unique, each time they step on the mat, so every private yoga session is different and tailored to your needs, at that moment in time.
Private yoga sessions are scheduled for approximately 60 minute each, at a frequency of your choice. Ideal is two lessons per week.
- Postures (mindful movement, strength, stretch, balance, focus and power)
- Breathing practices
- Restorative Yoga
- Meditation (spiritual and scientific approach)
- Mudra (hand movements) & Mantra (affirmations)
- Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation)
"Surrendering to relaxation and healing."
Restorative Yoga is a deeply relaxing style of yoga practice. It is a receptive, non-active practice.
The time in Restorative Yoga postures is on average 5 to 20 minutes. When in the postures you are completely supported in a particular way, where blankets, pillows and other special props are used. This helps to achieve the desired benefit of yoga, such as opening your lungs, or releasing the tension in your entire body. In Restorative Yoga, body and mind are brought into balance, and begin to dialogue with one another in a peaceful way.
When you practice this type of yoga, you enter into a state of deep relaxation, where you begin to "let go" of those deep emotional patterns in your body and find a state of balance that will allow your body to heal itself. Restorative Yoga is mainly for practitioners suffering from injuries, stress, or illness, who therefore require a yoga practice that can bring them back to a better quality of life; classes are necessarily small so that each person can receive detailed attention to ensure they are safe and properly supported.The development of Restorative Yoga postures began in 1937 with B.K.S. Iyengar, a yoga teacher from Pune, India, and is growing more and more in the West as a form of deep relaxation and restoration as a whole.
*This practice is included in all the presencial classes and also can be an unique class itself or a workshop.
