Privates 

"Learning to challenge your resistance in the posture lights the same inner fire that allows you to overcome your limitations and to fulfill your potential in life." Rod Stryker, The Four Desires

Currently Rachel is offering yoga via privates. Rachel has extensive experience offering yoga to all aspects of the community: via both private group and individual sessions, for businesses, schools, in workshops and conferences.

Private lessons are a great way to both begin and maintain a yoga practice. The one-on-one attention allows for an individualized and unique experience and can be a great introduction into yoga as well as a means to delve deeper into your practice and come out of a "yoga plateau".

Contact for pricing information.

Please indicate both the size of the private and what style of yoga you are looking for when requesting a private session. Styles and details are listed below. 

*Yoga privates can also accompany a therapy session and/or and Ayurvedic Consultation*

 


Yoga Basics/hatha yoga

"Yoga has less to do with what you can do with your body or with being able to still your mind than it has to do with the happiness that unfolds from realizing your full potential." Rod Stryker, The Four Desires

Yoga Basics/Hatha Yoga is for everyone and anyone: those new to yoga, advanced practitioners, and everyone else in between. There is no yoga experience required. As one of Rachel's former teachers would always say, "If you can breathe, you can practice yoga." With a focus on foundation and alignment, a sample private session might include an opening chant (mantra), breath work (pranayama), postures (asana), and meditation.

 


Restorative

"Most of us need to be given permission to switch from the doing to the being mode, mostly because we have been conditioned since we were little to value doing over being." Jon Kabat-Zinn

Restorative Yoga is the dessert of yoga, hands down. Poses are usually done lying down, accompanied by and supported with a number of props such as blankets, bolsters, straps, and eye pillows, and are held for 5-20 minutes. Restorative Yoga is much needed in today's go-go-go society where adrenal fatigue is common and doing nothing for the sake of nothing is rare. It is an essential part of the yoga world and a truly healing, relaxing, and yes, restorative experience for all. All levels welcome. No experience required.


Yoga Nidra

"All of the troubles of life come upon us because we refuse to sit quietly for a while each day in our rooms." Blaise Pascal

Yoga Nidra literally translates as yogic sleep. If you are looking for a deep restorative and relaxing meditation practice that requires nothing of you except to lie down, breathe, and listen, while at the same time, helps you to achieve your sankalpa's (resolve/intention), look no further! After experiencing a Yoga Nidra practice, you might feel a calm, balanced, and focused energy wash over you. Yoga Nidra is excellent for those experiencing any stress, anxiety, or uncertainty in life.  If Restorative Yoga is the dessert of yoga, Yoga Nidra is the cherry on top. No experience needed!


kids yoga

"I am a restlessness inside a stillness inside a restlessness" Dodie Smith

The benefits of yoga for children are much like those for adults: engaging in some much needed down time, stress relief, enhanced self-awareness and acceptance, improved academic/mental performance, as well as getting a good ole fashioned stretch and having some fun.  Nowadays, kids are inundated with technology and jam-packed schedules, leaving them little time to play, be kids, and connect with their mind, body, or breath. Teaching a child to make this connection is priceless, as knowing how to self-care, be empowered, and become resilient are necessities in this world today. 

Full of energy, life, and more connected to their true selves, kids are ideal and natural yogi's and yogini's. 

Rachel is certified through Yoga Ed. and teaches children of all ages, from grades K-12.
