YOGA OFFERINGS 


Corporate and Mental Health Center Classes

By appointment       $70/1 or 1.5 hour session   

Yoga classes with a trained teacher can be an invaluable resource to offer your employees or clients. In the corporate setting, classes can be targeted to meet your companies needs, during lunch breaks, before or after work days. Classes can illuminate themes on self-care and ways of breathing, employing proper physical alignment and focus to transition to the work place and off the mat. Learn chair techniques to alleviate pain and tension from sitting at desks, or dealing with stressful day to day situations. 


Facilities that treat mental illness, schools and alternative school programs, and other organizations that promote healthy and balanced lives benefit greatly from the addition of a weekly or bi-weekly yoga class. These offerings are always trauma-sensitive and are delivered in a patient and very intentional manner. Special care is taken in understanding where clients may be at in their process by checking in with teachers, care providers and therapists. As many clients in these situations have little to no knowledge of yoga or its practices, these classes work from basics of how to hold the body, the role of breath in emotional and mental states, and the practice of the two. Classes will always be made accessible to every member of a community. Anyone can practice yoga, regardless of physical, emotional or mental barriers.

Private Yoga Therapy and Group Sessions 

By appointment       $60/1.5 hour session   10% off if you purchase 6 or more classes 

Private sessions are a great way to kick start or supplement your yoga practice. Ideal for those recovering from injury, people with PTSD or other trauma, for weight loss and nutritional support, and for those who have stepped away from yoga or other physical activity for an extended period of time. Private sessions allow the client to focus in on what they need and receive one-on-one support and instruction. 


Private Group Sessions are intended for a group of friends and family (2-8 people) that would like a class in the home or a public setting. This can be a great option if you would like to get people involved in yoga that are intimidated to join a public class for physical or emotional reasons.
