PRIVATE YOGA THERAPY CONSULTATION
Rather than prescribe treatments, yoga invites presence, participation, personal transformation, and long-term well-being through partnership with a Yoga Therapist. The only thing one must bring to the private sessions is motivation to want to feel better and dedication to practice at least three-four times per week.
1- INITIAL COMPLIMENTARY SKYPE or PHONE CONSULTATION - 15 MIN.
An initial phone consultation begins the process of getting to know concerns, needs, inspirations and health goals. This process brings comfort to the impending relationship between Therapist and client and begins the process of developing a shared vision for healing. The client can download, fill-up and send the health form before the evaluation before the assessment.
2 - ASSESSMENT CONSULTATION - 60 MIN.
Following the initial phone consultation, an extensive in person assessment takes place. At first we will discuss the points from the phone call and the health form in a in-depth interview. Depending on client needs, the assessment will include a postural analysis, spine, gait, breath analysis and range of motion testing.
At the end of this session, simple movement therapy (asana), breath work (pranayama), relaxation techniques, meditation and lifestyle modifications are recommended and given to the client at the end of the second session.
Because most clients come seeking pain relief, this is a primary focus. to reduce inflammation, pain and worry, and increase healing circulation and relaxation are considered a priority during the development stages of a Yoga Therapy program. In addition, the understanding and correcting of habitual movements that can be the cause of pain are explored.
3- PERSONALIZED HOME PROGRAM CONSULTATION, - 60 MIN.
Based on findings from Session Two, a personalized Yoga Therapy program is recommended. During Session Three, the client practices an agreed-upon, personalized program and a detailed handout is given for home practice.
Complimentary e-mail consultations are encouraged during the initial stages of home practice so that the client feels comfortable and confident with their program.
Session Three incorporates many of the same therapies introduces during the Assessment Session with emphasis on bringing balance and vitality to areas in need. When combined with Pranayama (breathing practices), this approach can lead to freeing of stuck prana (life energy) and decrease pain and discomfort in the body. Because we are multidimensional beings, all aspects of the client's well being are considered as an integral part of the healing process.
4 - REFINEMENT OF THE PROGRAM CONSULTATION - 60 MIN.
Normally three or four private sessions later, client and Therapist meet to evaluate the program. Progress is reviewed, changes are made and a new detailed are added to continue home practice. Session Four is a fortifying process, where the focus lies on strengthening areas of weakness at the physical, energetic, emotional, mental and wisdom levels, bringing the whole person into balance.

Keep a yoga journal
On the days you practice your new yoga program write down what you practised, how long, what you noticed and how you felt as a result. On the days you don’t practice, write down what and how you felt? A journal can provide you with useful information and is, in itself a tool for mindfulness and self-study.
