Yoga classes explained
One to one classes can be taken either in person at my house or online via Zoom or Skype.
Individual sessions: One to one sessions are a wonderful way to develop and maintain a personal practice and deepen your relationship with yoga. This is how students traditionally learned alongside a teacher.
I work with you to make a practice based on your needs. This can then grow and develop – sometimes over many years. One to ones also work well alongside a weekly class – I always did both and found they complemented each other beautifully.
We work together to choose the length of practice and time of day that will suit you best to fit in with your daily life. This can be anything from ten minutes upwards – a short, regular practice is far more effective than an hour once a week.
Investing time and energy in a regular practice really pays off. It’s important to be realistic and kind to yourself about what is possible in your life. When the going gets tough, simply standing for 2 minutes on the mat maintains the relationship with the space you create for yoga. Once you’re there, it’s amazing how the practice seems to begin of its own accord!
People often come to me initially because of an injury, illness, or difficult life situation. One to ones are especially valuable for these situations because we can fine-tune a practice in a more therapeutic way.
Sessions are usually an hour long. Sometimes I see people for an hour and a half the first time, just to give us a bit more space. It’s also possible to have a short meeting to find out what it’s all about before you commit, and there is no charge for this.
For the first 3 or 4 sessions it’s helpful to come every 2 or 3 weeks, to establish a rhythm of practice at home and for more support. After that we can be flexible: most people come every 3 or 4 weeks, some every 6 weeks, or just a few times a year. Some people like to come weekly for a period of time, and this can be helpful when you particularly need support in your life.
I teach one to one from my home in Dun Laoghaire, just opposite Sandycove Dart station. Also on Skype or Zoom! If you prefer a studio setting I can arrange that, but it would cost just a little more.
The standard rate is €60 per hour. I will always negotiate price to suit people’s income and life situation, so please do ask. Payment is on the day in cash or else by bank transfer.
