Private Yoga Sessions

Experience the benefits of Yoga in a safe and personalized way.

I have been teaching yoga for over 37 years, and my private yoga sessions are focused just on you. A one-on-one session allows for a more intimate environment. It is a solid place to prepare for a class setting, to deepen your personal practice or spend some time working with an injury or health condition.  This proper guidance will give you confidence on and off the mat, in the studio or at home.

Who are they for?

New Students

As a new student, the classroom environment may intimidate you. Private sessions with Pam allow her to focus on just you and make sure you are getting off to an appropriate start with the breath and basic movement needed to integrate into a class.

Experienced Students

Gain a deeper insight into postures or sequences that interest you. Receive guidance on alignment, modifications, or developing a balanced home practice. As an experienced student, you can learn about ancient yoga philosophy or techniques, such as chanting, meditation and breathing practices.

Health-Conscious

Therapeutic yoga sessions can promote self-healing and a safe practice. You can learn to manage health conditions and possibly reduce symptoms.

From basic back care to stress reduction, privates adapt the practice of yoga to meet the needs of people looking to manage and alleviate pain and suffering.


How do they work?

Consultation

In a one-on-one consultation with Pam, you will receive a brief background of the ancient philosophies of yoga and their daily application in today’s world. You will have a skeletal evaluation with suggestions and or adjustments for daily standing and sitting.

Pam will introduce you to yogic breathing, your basic yogic-seated posture, balancing and moving off the skeletal structure. If you are coming for a health challenge or injury, these issues will be addressed through a complete evaluation and a plan to continue will be set in place.

Testimonial

Although I am a yoga beginner at 63, I am finding that my classes with Pam (in which we incorporate yoga breath work with the flow and grace of yoga movements) are unexpectedly spilling over into my daily activities. I am almost reflexively thinking about my breathing and body position as I balance going down steps and pivot into a low car. When I found myself in a long line at the store, I took a deep breath, aligned my posture and did slow focused  breathing instead of having my usual impatience. Even in my housework, as I struggled with my heavy vacuum, I was doing what came “natural” to me–exhaling on the pushing motion, and it was hard work. Then I remembered Pam teaching that in Yoga, generally, I should work on the inhale (push the vacuum) and do the exhale on the more relaxing part of the motion (pull the vacuum back toward me). Vacuuming became so much easier for me, just like some of the movements Pam was teaching me that were so much less difficult when I also did my breath work correctly.

I feel that in the short time I have been learning Yoga with Pam that I am improving my balance, muscle tone, posture, strength, and flexibility. Those things are fairly easy to see and measure. (My husband even noticed!)

But I am changing in ways much more difficult to measure as well:  my mood, my sense of well being, my sense of self… I can’t say where exactly all of these improvements have come from but I know Pam would say, “It’s in the breath.”
