Private Yoga/Meditation with Anne Dries

$150/90 minute session

Private, one on one yoga and/or meditation training can benefit students of all levels.  For first timers and beginning yoga students, time spent one on one will ensure that postures are performed safely at your optimal level and in alignment with your individual body, right from the start.  Our bodies need different things depending on our biomechanics, injuries and imbalances.  Every body is different!  Not all postures should look the same for everybody, as we are all created differently.  A personal yoga training session will individualize yoga for you, and make future classes you take more beneficial.  Extremely beneficial for students with injuries, a private session will help you understand how to modify different poses that meet your healing body’s needs.  For more advanced students the private yoga training session is also very beneficial.  Sometimes we find ourselves in habits of alignment that are not always the best for us.  Although this will be pointed out to you in group classes, private training allows us to look more closely at your body, recommending a tailored approach to each pose.  It is also a fantastic experience to receive assists in each and every posture!  Even the most experienced yoga students can benefit from an alignment refresher such as this.  Feel yourself getting deeper into each posture with the help of your instructor, and work on specific areas that you find most challenging.

Thousands of years ago yoga was created as a way to open and prepare the body and mind for the practice of meditation.  Meditation was the goal; movement and breathing were the tools to access it.
In this workshop we will revisit these traditional roots, focusing on training the mind to be more calm by using tools such as breathing and gentle yoga movements.  We will practice different ways to meditate, including Nyasa, Shivayatra, Yoga Nidra, Chakra Awareness, Shamatha, Loving Kindness, Impermanence, Breath Meditation and more, interspersed with movement helping the body and mind deepen into the meditation more easily.  Take away tools to use in your daily life when you are experiencing higher levels of stress and needing to find more calmness and peace.
