Individuals and Groups
Most people come to yoga for the exercise, and along the way find it does so much more. Sure, it does all the physical stuff – strength, flexibility, movement, balance, but it doesn’t stop there. Those aspects being addressed in the physical body cross over to the mental and spiritual side.
How great is it to be confident and strong, have emotional balance, be flexible in the moment and gracefully move from issue to issue? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we were mostly pain free, felt good about ourselves and love all beings around us?
But what holds back people the most is worry and self-judgment. Many people worry about whether they can get into a pose and wondering if they will look like they don’t know what they’re doing. They also tend to be concerned that they won’t look like others in the room and they’re not doing it “right.” Or maybe they’re just not feeling good or may not want to deal with the issues which can arise.

Ultimately, you’ll come to realize that what happens in the yoga session carries forward into your world and begin moving towards a balanced body, mind and spirit.
Most people are best served starting with weekly sessions to create a strong foundation. As you begin tuning into your body and assessing what’s “next”, private sessions can be scheduled further apart with “homework” during the off weeks. Homework can include a quick 15-minute home routine or joining a studio group class.
It’s all about finding what works best for you and how it fits your life and schedule.
If you think you’d like to try an open studio group class that I currently teach, please come see me at Rise Yoga.
Or contact me directly to schedule your initial thirty (30) minute assessment.
