HealthPrivate Yoga to Release Stress

Private Yoga to Release Stress

Your time is precious, your needs unique, and you want the one-on-one attention from an experienced yoga teacher that you can’t get in a group class.

Stress shows up in our bodies and minds in many different ways. You may not even realize it. It can be tightness and tension, headaches, pains, illness, insomnia, worry, depression, weight gain.  During yoga and breathing you move your body and ease your mind to release that stress so you can live a happy and healthy lifestyle.

    You! Over the years I have worked many wonderful clients; busy professionals, busy parents, executives, retirees, CEOs, lawyers, professional athletes, professional chair-sitters, caregivers, tech workers, engineers, programmers, gamers, laborers, husband and wife, and families.

    Each one is unique!
    Their goals are different: 

  • Recover from injury or surgery or other health challenges.
  • Add to their fitness routine.
  • Take better care the aging body.
  •  Getting up and down from the floor with ease.
  • Keep up with the kids.
    They range in age from 5 to 96-year olds.

    So please know there is a yoga style for you! You will strengthen your body and your mind.

Pricing is similar to other private self-care services like a massage or personal trainer. During our initial phone consultation I can give you a quote.


TIME – I don’t have time to go to a class – that is the number one reason clients tell me they choose to have quality in-home yoga sessions. We set the time to meet your schedule. Very early mornings are available.

INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION – This is another reason clients prefer private, so we can focus on what your specific needs are.

Private yoga or breathing sessions offer you the convenience of practicing in your home or office at the time of your choice. This will alleviate the stress of time and travel, bringing you the comfort and privacy you deserve.

The option of doing these one-on-one sessions online is an additional convenience. So easy. You set up your mat and laptop and log in. Just you and me. It is like I am right there with you.

I am offerings options for your comfort level. You choose!

  •  In-person one-on-one sessions at your home or office.
    (I am fully vaccinated!)
  • Online via Zoom, my clients love these and you may too! 

You decide what is best for you!

What do you seek from your yoga practice?

  • Release the stress and tension from your body and your mind

  • Improve posture and find relief from back pain

  • Improve your spine health

  • Return to your strong self after injury or other health challenges

  • Renew your strength and flexibility after a long time of neglect

  • Learn how yoga poses can relieve stress

  • Mend a broken heart

  • A meditation practice you can do on your own

  • Not sure what, was recommended to you. (very common!)

Amazingly, yoga can offer all of that and more. The unique thing about yoga is beneficial for the body, the mind and the spirit. You move your body in such ways that it releases the tension and stress and makes space for what you really need. Yoga has been around for hundreds of years because it works!

Sessions are designed to your requests and draw influence from the following styles:

  • Gentle (moving slow, yet finding strength and flexibility)

  • Adaptive/Chair (adapted for health challenges; injury, disability, beginners. very popular.)

  • Vinyasa (active and warming)

  • Restorative / Yin (resting with the support of props; calming the nervous system)

  • Meditation (guided meditation, learn the techniques of mindfulness meditation)

  • A combination of the above. (This is the most common)


First, you reach out to me via email:
We need to connect, have a brief phone consultation to make sure we are a good fit.
We will then schedule an intro session. We can meet in person or online.
This first session will include yoga movement so I can assess your needs, and a little time for discussion about what you are looking for in a yoga practice.

Then, we find a time that is convenient for you and set a schedule. This can be one to three times a week. It is best to set a schedule at designated times.

Private yoga is similar to working with a personal trainer, we focus on your goals and needs.

I suggest at least 10-session commitment. Private yoga works best when you make a commitment to it. You will see best results with a consistent practice. It is an investment in your health.

Curious how it works with online sessions?

It is almost the same as in-person sessions!
FIRST- Let’s chat and see if we are a good fit. Schedule your session.
Ready to move forward — we set a schedule – usually the same time, once or twice a week.
Yoga sessions are 60 minutes. Breathing sessions are 30 minutes.

YOU find a space in your home, set out your mat or chair. Log in at our designated time. I will be waiting for you.
We meet via Zoom. (If you haven’t used it before, it is free and easy. I can help set up.)

WE begin – It is just the two of us. I watch you carefully and talk and guide you through your practice.
The practice — the movement, the breathing, and the stillness — will be designed to meet your needs.
It is your body, you find what feels good.

YOU will find yourself feeling much better than when you started, happy that you have taken the time to take care of yourself.

ME – I am grateful for the opportunity.
