One to one private yoga sessionsPractice with me, open your body and your mind
One to One Yoga Tuition.
I am still finding my way in the here and now, and corona-virus restrictions/ guidelines have meant that I’ve had to take a step back to re-evaluate my teaching commitments. After much reflection I realised that the answer was staring me in the face. One to one yoga sessions have always been part of my work in the past, but only a small part as my diary was always so busy with other yoga work commitments! One to ones give me more time and are such a rewarding part of my work. I have a spacious, fully equipped pine clad yoga studio at the end of my garden which is very private and peaceful, so the perfect environment to teach and practice yoga.With 18 years of ‘teaching’ experience under my belt, and after many study hours, I have an in-depth anatomy and bio-mechanical knowledge of the human body. I have also studied extensively in learning how to therapeutically rehabilitate the body as well as stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
“‘I am a doctor and work long hours for for the NHS, I’m therefore so deeply grateful to Brigitte for my weekly 90 minute 121 yoga sessions. She is a highly experienced, knowledgeable yoga teacher and has the ability to skilfully adapt sessions according to your requests or needs. My personal 121 yoga sessions may include a combination of dynamic flow yoga, somatic yoga, yin yoga, restorative yoga and meditation practices depending on how I’m feeling on the day. Whatever the practice, it always creates a sense of calm, restores my vitality and helps build resilience for my work. These 121 sessions are truly a blessing!”
One to one payment options
Yin yoga one to one
If you feel you need to slow down or if you wish to increase your level of flexibility, then this is the practice for you. Yin is a passive, quiet, meditative practice, but can also be quite intense and challenging. The purpose is to apply moderate stress to the connective tissue, the tendons, fascia and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility and releasing stress within the fascia tissue of the body. Yin consists of mostly seated postures which encourage a feeling of letting go.
Alignment-based hatha/flow yoga one to one
A hatha/ vinyasa yoga session will incorporate, movement perfectly synchronised with breath so that we smoothly and safely transition from one pose to the next, this cultivates complete mindfulness. I will choreograph a creative sequence that may differ from week to week, depending on your goals. At this session you can expect to learn about, meditation, breathing techniques, mudra’s, body/breath movement awareness, you will also learn how to correct the bodily alignment of your bones/muscles too, you will occasionally be challenged to explore your limitations – body and mind.
Meditation one to ones
Meditation teaches you to be less reactive, feel less stressed and to become more focussed. Meditating can become part of a personal development plan or maybe you’re looking to improve your relationships with those around you. Whatever the reason, training the mind through meditation is training in awareness, and training in awareness offers the potential to fundamentally transform your perspective on life. At these sessions, you will be guided and will learn techniques that you will have in your tool box for life.
Restorative yoga one to one
Restorative Yoga is profoundly healing to the mind and body and it’s also a wonderful way to way to relax and soothe frayed nerves. During a Restorative one to one session, you will use bolsters, blankets, and blocks so that the body can experience the benefits of a pose without having to exert any effort. The poses are simple and sometimes held for as long as 20 minutes, after which you will feel revived and absolutely divine.
Somatic yoga one to one
Somatic yoga is for anyone who suffers with chronic pain, aches and pains or stiffness. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how fit you are. Somatic movement involves a series of specific exercises that reconnect the brain with the muscles so you can let go of tightness in the body. The movements are slow and mindful, and are performed on the floor, so your body is more comfortable and isn’t fighting against gravity.
Therapeutic yoga one to one
These sessions are designed to stimulate the bodies natural healing mechanisms by incorporating a mix of breathing techniques, satya somatic yoga, yin yoga and restorative yoga, all of which help to release energy blockages within the body and you can expect to work at a much slower and relaxed pace. You will be encouraged to observe, pay attention and really listen to your breath, body and mind, so that you gain clarity, focus and the nervous system calms, which is profoundly healing on all levels. This approach enables you to release held patterns or mis-alignments, assist in recovery from trauma, physical injuries, immune system disorders, as well as stress/ anxiety and fatigue that can erratically affect gut health, organ health, sleep patterns, emotional states and general sense of well being.
