Private yoga sessions are a wonderful way to have a class, or series of classes, personalized to your specific needs or desires, and are provided in the lovely Posabilities studio or clinic space.
Sessions are available for individuals or groups.
After an initial conversation, a program will be designed based on what you want and your needs. A class day, time, and length will be determined based on your schedule during the initial conversation.
Sessions can be used:
As an introduction to yoga.
To support you as you refine your yoga practice.
To support you as you recover from an injury or overcome health issues.
As part of a training regime for a specific sport.
To enjoy the many benefits of individualized attention from a trained yoga instructor.
Private sessions are also great for groups and celebrations:
Team and strength building for businesses and sports teams
Bridal showers and wedding parties
Reiki means "universal life energy." It's an ancient healing method that manipulates energy flow in the body. Reiki practitioners believe there is an energy force in and around the body. They believe that there is a flow of energy between the reiki practitioner and the receiver of the treatment.
What might I experience?
"I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly." "I think I fell asleep." "I can't believe how hot your hands got!" "I feel more relaxed than even after a massage." "My headache is gone." These are some of things people typically say after a Reiki session.
The experience of Reiki is subjective, changeable, and sometimes very subtle. People often experience heat in the practitioner's hands, but sometimes the practitioner's hands feel refreshingly cool. Other common experiences are subtle pulsations where the practitioner's hands are placed or cascading waves of pulsations throughout the body.
People often comment how comforting they find the experience of Reiki to be. An interesting study reported that recipients frequently feel that they are hovering in a threshold state of consciousness, simultaneously aware of their surroundings and deeply indrawn. Some people fall into a deep, sleeplike meditative state. Sometimes the experience of Reiki is dramatic, while for other people, the first session in particular may be uneventful, although they feel somehow better afterward. The most common experience is an almost immediate release of stress and a feeling of deep relaxation.
Reiki is cumulative and even people who don't notice much the first time usually have progressively deeper experiences if they continue. Besides the immediate experience of the Reiki, you may notice other changes that continue to unfold as the day goes on: perhaps stronger digestion, a sense of being more centered and poised and less reactive, and sleeping deeply that night.
Pilates helps to strengthen and tone the body safely and with consistently evolving results. The guiding principles of Pilates are: Whole Body Health, Whole Body Commitment, and Breath. The movement principles of Pilates consist of breathing, balanced muscle development, concentration, control, centering, precision, and rhythm.
The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning
Tones and strengthens core muscle groups, in particular the core.
Improves posture and balance; focus on proper alignment.
Heightens body awareness.
Increases flexibility and range of motion.
Prevents injury; decreases back, neck and joint pain.
Creates ease of movement in everyday life.
Pilates differs from traditional strength training in that it utilizes multiple muscle groups simultaneously, versus focusing on one group. The core, or “powerhouse” as Joseph Pilates referred to it (the muscles from underneath the shoulder blades and around the ribcage to the hips and pelvis) are always engaged in tandem with other arm or leg muscles, which creates stability and a strong foundation. The correct alignment principles taught by Pilates will only improve any strength training routine.
Pilates can also be used to supplement an existing exercise regimen of strength training or cardiovascular routine, and optimal results can be realized by adding sessions twice a week. Pilates is ideal for toning, and does not stress the cardiovascular system. Through this toning, Pilates will change the shape of the body as you lose inches and stand taller. The sessions can consist of equipment or mat, private or group lessons- the key is the consistency of practice.
Pilates is very precise, and the differences in movements can be incredibly subtle. A private session with a certified instructor is recommended for the initial introduction to Pilates, and is also ideal for those who are experienced as the routine can be completely customized to your needs, yielding faster results.
