I offer one-to-one yoga sessions from my studio in Shortlands, Bromley. One-to-one yoga sessions can be particularly beneficial for anyone with mental or physical conditions/injuries, or for anyone who perhaps feels too nervous to join a yoga class. Many of my clients begin their yoga journey with a few one-to-ones before joining a weekly class.
One-to-one sessions are focused on the individual and their specific needs, and can be adapted to include yoga postures as well as breath work, meditation, and mindfulness techniques.
Many of my clients are interested in improving their mental health and alleviating symptoms of stress & anxiety, trauma & PTSD, and insomnia. In these instances I use a yoga therapy approach.
What is yoga therapy?
All yoga is beneficial, but yoga therapy uses very specific yoga practices to help alleviate symptoms and improve wellbeing. For example we may use particular breathwork techniques or a specific sequence of yoga poses to address a set of symptoms. Yoga therapy utilises the Kosha model; considering an individual in terms of 5 different layers (koshas) of body and mind. Therapy aims to bring about improvements within each kosha, gently balancing all aspects of an individual's health. Yoga therapy is specific to the individual, their history, and their needs.
I offer a yoga therapy approach for PTSD & Trauma, Stress & Anxiety, and Insomnia. I am currently undertaking an additional 2 year yoga therapy training to enable me to teach yoga therapy for physical conditions such as Cancer, Chronic Fatigue, and Fibromyalgia.
One-to-one sessions are £55 per hour, or a reduced rate of £500 for a block of 10.
Individual mental health programmes
As well as offering one-one-one sessions I also offer specific programmes for Stress & Anxiety, and Insomnia & Sleep Recovery. These programmes are similar to my group courses, but adjusted to suit the individual. Programmes run for 6 weeks and include a weekly 1.5 hour yoga/psychoeducation session, as well as home practices, and ongoing weekly advice and support.
Programmes are £380 for 6 weeks
If you are interested in one-to-one sessions please feel free to contact me for further information or to talk through your needs.
