Private (in person or via skype)

Yin (1 Hour)

Yin yoga is a practice of passive stretching to better maintain the health and mobility of the joints. Yin yoga encourages a deeper state of relaxation, rejuvenation, and increased flexibility. In yin, the shapes are held for 3-7 minutes (sometimes longer!), enabling gravity to begin opening up the muscles and work further into the connective tissues, particularly the fascia. A regular yin practice is extremely beneficial to both body and mind.

Solo $50, Duet $65

 

Restorative (90 Minutes)

Restorative yoga is a deeply regenerative practice, providing the body and mind with a full and complete process of total relaxation. Shapes are held for 10-20 minutes, which enables a soft opening to the body, and allows the breath to slow and deepen. Joanna infuses her restorative yoga classes with the practice of yoga nidra, or guided relaxation.

Solo $65, Duet $80

 

Yoga Nidra (45 Minutes)

Yoga nidra is the Sanskrit term for “yoga sleep.” The practice of yoga nidra is a guided relaxation, where the body is lying in a completely supported state of savasana (sleep pose), tuning out all distractions. This active relaxation encourages the body to renew and restore, and has been associated with lower levels of stress, better sleep, and a calmer state of being.

Solo $45, Duet $60

 

Alignment Correction (1 Hour)

Maintaining alignment and good form in a yoga class can be challenging, whether you are new to yoga or an experienced yogi. Oftentimes classes are too full to get that individualized attention from an instructor, or move at too quick of a pace to understand all the minute details of alignment. Scheduling a one-on-one alignment correction private class can radically change your asana practice, making it safer, and improving your overall practice, through the exploration of your unique concerns and detailed attention. Useful for yoga students of any age, experience level, or practice type.

Solo $50, Duet $65

 

Goal Oriented (1 Hour; 3 Session Minimum)

Is there a particular goal you would like to work towards achieving with your physical practice? A headstand? A handstand? Arm balance? Increased flexibility and range of motion? Scheduling a goal-oriented private session can help you learn techniques and tools to apply to your regular asana practice, strengthening your progress towards your goal. (*Goal oriented sessions are not a guarantee that a physical goal will be achieved, as not all asanas are possible for all students, dependent upon our anatomy, strength, flexibility, and any injuries or limitations.)

Solo $50 per session

 

Small Group for special events (e.g., bridal party, etc.)

Private yoga classes add a special touch to your event: whether it’s a bachelorette party pre-bash yoga sesh, a guided meditation and gentle stretching for your corporate seminar to start the day, a relaxing yoga class on the morning of your big day, or a powerful vinyasa class with your closest friends. Schedule as few as one class, or as many as a recurring weekly class.

Starting at $75/class

 

 

Corporate

Bringing yoga (and/or meditation) to your business is a great benefit for your employees, and is already being implemented by many progressive businesses. Yoga can be beneficial for stress reduction leadership training, as well as overall physical wellness.  Combined, the invitation of yoga at your workplace can positively impact office culture, performance, and costs. Joanna offers a range of practices to bring to your company, and can base the practice on your employees’ needs. Benefits of corporate yoga may include:

  • improved focus under stress/deadlines

  • increased morale

  • decreased fatigue and back pain

  • improved strength, leading to improved posture and decreased chronic pain

  • lower healthcare costs due to improved physical well-being

  • increased productivity and efficiency
