Individual lessons and Yoga Therapy are held in the Barn at Millers Farm or occasionally in a person's home. One to One teaching is the traditional way of Yoga for those who wish to develop a daily 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 stress or illness. A teacher trained in the Krishnamacharya tradition uses the tools of Yoga to help change these patterns and to optimise health.

If a person has serious health problems, Yoga Therapy may help to relieve pain, improve movement, sleep, breathing, digestion or coordination. Movement with the breath, relaxation, sound and meditation are used as appropriate in modified forms to suit the individual. A regular home practice helps to overcome the effects of illness by reducing stress, anxiety or depression, assisting in a greater sense of self empowerment and well being.

 What to expect from One to One tuition: A free half hour introductory consultation will assess general health, diet, sleep, work and leisure habits. From this strictly confidential information, Sue will plan a one hour lesson and 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 a short regular practice at home. This will enable her or 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, the practice will be revised and adapted to suit development as it arises. Lessons are generally spaced 2 - 4 weeks apart and cost £35 per hour when held at Millers Farm. Prices may vary at other venues according to space rental and travel costs.
