Traditionally Yoga was taught on a one to one basis in India.It is probably the most effective way to deepen your practice and a powerful way to connect with yourself and you will also develop a greater trust and rapport with your teacher. These private sessions offer the opportunity to ask questions, receive personal alignment instructions and learn more challenging poses. To deepen your personal practice in a way not always possible in a class environment.

A regular daily practice is the cornerstone of yoga so you will take away a personal daily yoga program with clearly illustrated diagrams and simple instructions and this can be altered as you progress step by step towards your goals. Read below to see some of the ways in which private sessions can be beneficial:

 

” I began 1-1 sessions with Jane after a hip injury had left me walking on crutches for six weeks. Yoga was recommended to facilitate my recovery – I chose Jane after research and was impressed by her professional training.

Over time I regained my self confidence in walking without fear of tripping or falling over, my core strength developed and my posture and balance steadily improved. There is also an emotional and spiritual aspect to Yoga practice which I became aware of and began to experience, a development of self.

Jane has a very sound knowledge of skeletal structure and muscle and this enables her to identify the cause of other problematic aches and pains. Thus, a neck and shoulder issue I had has cleared up and my stiff ankles ( the result of a bad sprain some years ago ) are now loosening.

She has a sunny disposition, a compassionate and sensitive nature and it has been my good fortune to benefit from her skills. Whether you are new to Yoga or experienced I would thoroughly recommend working with Jane – she is an excellent teacher and an absolute joy. “
