Yoga Instruction (individual or small group)
In my office or your home, I will lead you through a customized yoga practice (vinyasa or therapeutic), providing personalized adjustment/support and integration of therapeutic benefits of yoga to address your needs.
Private instruction offers personal care for your changing body. I will identify specific yoga poses to address your needs, and work with you on your practice to explore areas of strength and weakness, flexibility and restricted mobility.
