Individual tuition - the traditional way of Yoga for those who wish to develop a personal practice at home. A one to one relationship with a teacher is invaluable and a great opportunity to explore the benefits of yoga more deeply than in a group class. It can help a person of any age, level of fitness or state of health to recognise patterns in movement, breathing, diet or lifestyle which may be causing poor posture, stress or illness. A teacher trained in the Krishnamacharya tradition uses the tools of Yoga to help change these patterns and to optimise health.


Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda - If a person has serious health problems, Yoga Therapy may help to relieve pain, improve breathing, mobility, coordination, digestion or sleep and may ease anxiety or depression. Movement with the breath, relaxation, sound and visualisation are used as appropriate in modified forms to suit the individual. A regular home practice helps to overcome the effects of illness, assisting in a greater sense of self empowerment and well being. Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of healthcare based on changes to diet and lifestyle. Understanding your constitution and your relationship to the seasons, food, ageing and lifestyle choices may help to develop mnew attitudes to self-care.

 

 

One to one sessions are held in the Barn at Millers Farm or occasionally in a person's home. The introductory consultation will last for an hour and a half in which to assess general health, diet, sleep, work and leisure habits. From this strictly confidential information, Sue will plan a simple home practice which will include a combination of the tools of yoga, whatever is appropriate to the individual's needs. It is important that the person is committed to regular practice at home. This will enable her/him to become aware of, and change, patterns of movement, breathing, diet or lifestyle and help the teacher to see how the practice is working. At each subsequent lesson of about one hour, the practice will be revised and adapted to suit development as it arises. Lessons are generally spaced 4 - 6 weeks apart and cost £45 per hour when held at Millers Farm. Prices may vary at other venues according to travel costs.
